A short getaway to experience two superb areas of Zimbabwe – Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park. This week away is for the adventurous and those that want to experience the rawness of Africa without having a huge amount of time to spare. You will visit ‘the smoke that thunders’ at Victoria Falls and can take part in many adrenalin-fuelled activities such as bungee jumping or micro-lighting. You can then visit Zimbabwe’s largest national park – Hwange National Park, famous for its large elephant numbers and abundant wildlife.
Day 1 | Today you will arrive into Victoria Falls Airport where you will be collected by your driver and transferred to your hotel where you will stay for three nights.
Day 2 | Today is a full day at leisure to explore Victoria Falls. You could take a guided tour of the Falls by foot. Alternatively, if you are feeling more adventurous you could take a helicopter flight over the Falls, or even do a bungee jump off the bridge into the gorge.
