The Great Rhino Project safari

A ‘must do’ for keen conservationists and wildlife fans – we’re going on a on a 12 day rhino safari to Zimbabwe.

  • Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
  • Hwange National Park
  • Matobo National Park
  • 12 days/11 nights

Highlights of the Great Rhino safari

In each destination we’ll visit African wildlife conservation projects to learn about their work.  With the best guides we’ll explore the national parks. Hwange is Zimbabwe’s oldest national park famous for elephant and lion. It’s here that we may see black rhino living in the bush.

  • We’ll stay at Victoria Falls and Hwange and Matopos National Parks. Zimbabwe is an outstanding destination for conservationists and fans of African wildlife. Two of the national parks are listed on Natural World Heritage Sites. Discover the conservation efforts in hand for the threatened and rare black rhino. Meeting with anti-poaching teams who are helping to save the rhino in Southern Africa.
  • At Victoria Falls, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the area and still have time for sundowners on the Zambezi. Dine in the traditional Boma restaurant before heading off to Hwange National Park.
  • Hwange is famous for the large local population of elephants, rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard and wild dogs. There’s a lack of natural water sources so man-made waterholes have been created to aid the survival of the area’s wildlife.
  • Finally we’ll join conservationists in the Matobo Hills as they go about their daily work to protect black rhino. Matobo is an incredible area of granite outcrops known for its black eagles. The Matobo Hills are yet another World Heritage Site. We’ll spend two nights here meeting the chief warden and spending the day with one of the founding guides of the Matobo Rhino Project.
  • As the sun goes down we’ll sip sundowners on the graveside of Cecil John Rhodes.
