This Zimbabwe tour consists of 3 nights in the historic town of Victoria Falls named after the falls which were first seen by Dr David Livingstone in 1855 and named it so after the queen of England and a 3 night Hwange National Park safari.

Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) in the local Kololo language is aptly described as one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a must see for any visitor to southern Africa.

There is also an abundance of other activities you can book including walk with the lions, elephant back safaris, white water rafting, river cruises, helicopter rides, bungee jumping, jet boating, hiking, canoeing and fishing. If you would like to include any of these activities please contact us for a quote.

Hwange National Park is 14,650 sq km in size and is the largest Park in Zimbabwe and is named after a local Nhanzwa chief.
