Arrive in Johannesburg and transfer to your tranquil hotel.

Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa

Days 2-3: Hwange National Park | Array of Species

Fly to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, and connect to Hwange National Park, where over 100 mammal and nearly 400 bird species are residents. Its elephant population is especially prolific.

Days 4-5: Kariba | Safari Cruising

This morning, fly to Bumi Hills, overlooking the shores of Lake Kariba. Enjoy the activities of the lodge, which include game drives, safari cruising and fishing on the lake, and walks in nearby Matusadona National Park. Bounded on the west by the Ume River and on the east by the Sanyati River, the park is marked by “drowned forests” and filled with a notably large buffalo population. It also features a small but significant number of endangered black rhinoceroses; keep watch for them along the foot of the escarpment.

Day 8: Victoria Falls | Tour & Tea

Fly to the Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world. Referred to as mosi-o-tunya (“the smoke that thunders”), the spectacular falls drop a staggering 1.2-mile-wide curtain of water over the edge, sending up plumes of mist and rainbows. After settling in to your historic hotel, enjoy high tea and a tour of the iconic property. Later there is time to stroll the lush tropical grounds or explore the surrounding rainforest at leisure; a private pathway leads directly to the breathtaking falls.

Day 9: Victoria Falls | Plummeting Waters

This morning, embark on a guided walking tour of rainbow-frocked Victoria Falls. See the cloud of spray where the Upper Zambezi plummets 300 feet into the lower Zambezi; this same mist can be seen from miles away. The falls’ average flow is an awe-inspiring 120 million gallons per minute; the deafening roar of the flowing water makes conversation all-but-impossible. Afterward, visit a local market. This evening, enjoy a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi River.
