The ground you’ll cover

Throughout Zimbabwe’s turbulent history, one thing has always remained true - the country’s combination of welcoming culture, Big 5 wildlife and diverse landscapes has kept visitors coming back for more. This 9 day LuxVenture® takes you to 3 iconic destinations in Zimbabwe, starting off in one of the ten largest parks in Africa, Hwange National Park - home to the biggest population of elephant in the world. With safari lodge Elephant’s Eye, Hwange as your base, spend 3 days on exhilarating game drives and walking safaris. Next up, you’ll journey into a private concession within the Mana Pools National Park for the ultimate armchair safari experience at Kanga Camp. With a waterhole directly in front of the camp, feel free to sit back and let the wildlife come to you. A sought-after destination for walking safaris, you will have the opportunity to track lions on foot alongside your expert guide before heading off to your third destination - Victoria Falls. Based along the banks of the Zambezi River, Old Drift Lodge will be your base for the following 2 nights. Its close proximity to the Falls offers an array of activities to choose from -  from sunset river cruises to guided walking safaris along the mighty Zambezi.

Each chalet has a private wrap around deck and secluded outdoor shower, boasting panoramic views of the local waterhole frequented by herds of elephant.
