Highlights of the Victoria Falls big 5 safari

  • We spend 3 nights at Ilala Lodge, just an 8 minute walk from Victoria Falls
  • soak up the splendor of the rain forests overlooking the falls themselves
  • complimentary dinner and tour of the Falls
  • plenty of time for intense game viewing in Zambezi National Park
  • it’s just a short flight to Hwange for 3 nights in the heart of the National Park. (The reserve is on the north eastern border with Botswana so it shares the same eco system as Chobe)
  • we’ll stay at Davison’s Camp
  • accommodation in charming en-suite tents overlooking the waterhole or plains

Best time to do this safari tour

Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park are great year round destinations. The rainforest around the Falls is always soaked in the spray from the Falls.

  • May to October – dry season when Hwange is at its very best. Large herds of elephants and other animals come to the waterholes to drink.
  • April, May and September – the temperatures are pleasant with little rain.
  • Do take some time to read these notes on our “secret seasons in Africa” as you’re most likely to miss the crowds and get the best prices.
