    Rise and shine to a delicious breakfast on the verandah under the canopy of large trees. Elephants, Buffalo and all other wild animals freely roam the bush across the road from the Guesthouse and you are advised to keep your eyes peeled, Ellies have been known to parade down the main street in Vic Falls just for thrills. There is something for everyone today beyond simply viewing the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls (on foot, at night, by plane, by chopper?). Thrill seekers can whitewater-raft, bungee-jump, cage-dive with crocs. Less mad people can enjoy Kraft beer in town or visit the Vic Falls hotel for some old-world class. Return to your base at Vic Falls BnB for some great Zim hospitality in the cool of the beautiful, shaded garden.

    Your fully-kitted 4x4 will be handed over to you on-site at Vic Fallls BnB this morning. Our vehciles are comprehensively kitted with top-end kit and everything you need to take you deep into Zim's National Parks in safety and comfort. After a comprehensive vehicle handover, you set off for Hwange National Park. The first 80km on wide tar before you turn right towards Pandamatenga/Matetsi and enter Hwange National Park. You may stop at Robins camp for lunch before proceeding deeper into the park to your exclusive wild campsite. You will set up your own camp and prepare dinner using the equipment provided with the 4x4. We collaborate with Zimparks to book you into various remote "picnic sites" deep in the park for your overnight stay. After day visitors leave (around 15:00pm), you have these remote hides and game-viewing platforms to yourself. This is authentic Africa, wild and raw and you have it to yourself. It will deeply affect your soul.

Three to Four hours of easy driving through beautiful Hwange National Park takes you to Main Camp and on to the Painted Dog Conservation Centre where you can view rehabilitation efforts for these rare hunters who are more endangered than the blue whale. After visiting the wild dogs, it is a short drive through the wild sikumi indigenous forest to Tuskers camp, where you can spend the afternoon watching animals coming down to drink at the waterhole. Another day in Paradise.

  • Day5 - 6
    Up at sunrise to ensure you cover the 200km from Tuskers to the Kariba Ferry in time for embarkation at 10:00. Don't worry, it is tar road all the way and should take less than 2 hours. The route meanders through beautiful bush and takes in the famous "bridge over the River Gwaai". This is true African freedom, driving one of the most scenic route in Africa through the bush to the tiny village of Mlibizi at the top end of Lake Kariba. The Kariba Ferry departs at 10:30 sharp. The Kariba Ferries team will help you board and you retire to the upper decks to sit in the sun enjoying the gentle breeze created by the forward motion of the ship and take in the 360 degree panoramas of this vast man-made lake. You will see elephants on the shoreline and herds of buffalo on the grassy banks. The ship sails 300km in 22 hours the length of the lake and is a classic "Zim" houseboat experience. The galley serves 3 buffet meals whilst you survey the horizons.

    Disembark the Kariba Ferry in the town of Kariba. Today you can explore Kariba, view the wall of what was the largest man-made freshwater lake in the world. Drive the winding road up to the Kariba Heights (watch out for elephants on the road) and see the Catholic Church dedicated to the scores of men lost building the concrete wall in the 1950's, some of whose bones remain in the concrete. Your accommodation will be at Lomagundi Lakeside Resort, an oasis of green grass on the shore of the lake. Watch out for Hippo and Zebra who come to graze on the lawn you camp upon. There is a restaurant, bar and swimming pool.

    Resupply Fuel & Groceries at our Kariba Depot and drive 3 hours through the bush to Mana Pools National Park. Our vehicles come equipped with both a rooftop and ground tent.

Our collaboration with Zimparks gives you access to amazing, un-fenced wild campsites deep inside the Park. Trained Zimpark Rangers will take you on walks in the wild on foot (pay per hour). Walking in the wild is total paradigm shift from "Standard Game-Drives "you are immersed in the sights, sounds & smells of the bush. Your life will be changed.

You can arrange and pay for walks at Zimparks Mana Reception. There is no better place on earth for wildlife lovers than Mana Pools, you will become addicted...

    By your third day at Mana, you will be settling into a routine. You will be awakened at dawn by a cacophony of birdsong and wildlife noises. Hippo grunting, lions roaring and baboons going mad at the presence of some real or imagined prowling leopard! Walk, eat, sit around talking about life, sleep in the shade of a Natal Mahogany tree. Live the life...

    Break camp, fill up the vehicle water tank at Mana Reception and drive 70km up to Chitake Spring. Here the subterrainian Chitake River rises up through the sand and runs on the surface for a few hundred meters before sinking back into the sandy riverbed. Massive herds of buffalo and all other species come out of the surrounding bush and hills to drink. As the only water source for a 70km radius, your camp site has ringside seats on this spectacle.

  • Day12 - 13
    Your campsite at Chitake is exclusive and you are really deep in raw Africa. It simply doesn't get wilder than Chitake Springs. You can hire a Zimparks Ranger to walk you through the deeply spiritual Baobab Forest overlooking the spring, or just set up a chair overlooking the water and watch the different animals come down to drink.

  • Day14
    We transfer you to Harare airport for your flight home. You will leave with more than pictures for your Instagram account, you will leave with a piece of Zimbabwe deep in your soul. Months later, at work, in difficult times, your mind will recall the gentle flow of the Zambezi River and remember what matters most to you is not the things we spend so much time trying to achieve, it is your loved ones and friends and values. The Zambezi Valley will change your life.
