Look out for Rock Pratincole, Schalow’s Turaco, African Finfoot, Half Collared Kingfisher and Thick Billed Weaver.

Try some extreme activities in Africa’s “adventure capital” or simply relax, walk in the rain forests which overlook the falls, take a spa or enjoy afternoon tea – choice is yours!

  • We’ll stay 3 nights at the delightful Ilala Lodge Hotel in Victoria Falls with *complimentary 3 course a la carte dinner per person. This is the closest hotel to Victoria Falls and the town centre
  • Sunset cruise on the *Ra-Ikane with premium brand drinks, executive snacks, transfers and river usage fees per/person
  • Guided tour of the Falls
  • Boma dinner extravaganza
  • Travel on to Zimbabwe’s biggest and best known wildlife park Hwange National Park  famous for its Presidential herd of elephant
  • Spend 3 nghts at the unique Camp Hwange on full board basis. (Some say that to stay at Camp Hwange is more than a great safari, it is an experience of life!)
  • Hwange is a private concession with excellent game viewing on day and night game drives and walks with some of the best guides in Africa
  • Game drives and guided walks to experience the park and its wildlife – giraffe, lion, zebra and approximately 40 000 elephant. The park is also home to Zimbabwe’s endangered wild dog population (one of the largest groups in Africa)
  • Bird counts in Zimbabwe topping 694

Best time for Hwange Explorer

  • June to September – winter months can be rather chilly at night but clear, sunny and warm during the day
  • November to March – summer months. Hot and sunny with short, heavy rain storms in the afternoons. This is the best time for birding when the intra-African and Palaearctic migrants are around and resident species in full breeding plumage.
