Hwange covers 14 square kilometers, and now you will explore the southern part of the park. You will be picked up at the lodge and driven to the edge of the park to Dete station. Here you board the Elephant Express - the elephant express. The trip goes along Hawnge National Park on parts of the world's straightest train route, which is a total of 650 km. A different safari experience.

Once there, check in at Bomani for an authentic safari experience. The lodge is located at the best area of Hwange, surrounded by the iconic acacia trees. You choose how you want to spend your days here in Hwange. For example, morning and afternoon safaris, night safaris to the waterhole to get closer to the elephants.
DAY 5: NEHIMBA LODGE
No days are near Nehimba. Activities offered are safari in open land ravens both during the day and after dark, in search of animals that are active during the night hours. Also possibility for safari on foot, which we recommend. Incredibly exciting to follow a herd of elephants on foot along with an experienced guide.
DAY 6: SAFARI IN HWANGE
Hwange is as big as the Serengeti and almost as large as the Kruger National Park, but remains an undiscovered gem with an incredibly diverse and exciting wildlife. While Kruger has 1,2 million visitors a year, Hwange has a modest 40. This makes it possible to experience one of Africa's finest safari parks without meeting a single safari car! This is what Africa wants at its best!
DAY 7: SAFARI IN HWANGE
New day with new opportunities. It will be another day of exciting safaris in Hwange National Park.
DAY 8: VICTORIA FALLS
Day to explore Victoria Falls. There is no shortage of activities to fill the days with. Victoria Falls is the place in the world with the most adrenaline-filled activities gathered in one place. We can also arrange helicopter tours over the falls, called "the flight of the angels". Magical! Feel free to ask us for advice!
In the afternoon you will join a river cruise on the Zambezi. It is possible to see hippos and crocodiles from the boat. In the dry months, elephants and antelopes come to the banks to cross over to some smaller islands in the river.
DAY 9 AND XNUMX: VICTORIA FALLS
Today you will explore the lush rainforest at Victoria Falls. Local guides tell the story of the falls and of the flora, fauna and bird and game life here. When the water flow is at its greatest, 10 million liters per minute rush down the 100-metre high cliff. It creates a mist and rainbow that just takes your breath away!
DAY 10: DEPARTURE
Breakfast and relaxation before the trip ends - or to a new destination. You will be picked up at the lodge and driven to Victoria Falls Airport for your return journey.
