It is approximately 3km from the main falls where you will sleep for 2 nights.

On the same day, you will be picked up for the sunset dinner cruise offering splendid scenery with exotic birdlife and many hippos, crocodiles and elephants that cross the river to feed on the island. As the magical sunset charm settles over the river, lanterns are lit and a wonderful 3-course dinner is served.

The following day, you will be picked up from your lodge to enjoy a guided tour of Victoria Falls. Later in the day, you will go on a village tour. As the evening approaches, you will go for an unforgettable African experience infused with Zimbabwean cuisine - the buffet boma dinner. Tomorrow, you will have an early transer to Hwange National Park.

After breakfast, you will be picked up for a drive of approximately 2 hours. You will go through Hwange, a rustic and charming town dotted with villages in rural Africa.

After lunch, an experienced and informative guide drives you into the thick bush of Ganda Lodge estate through the beautiful teak woodlands of the Sikumi Forest bordering the Hwange National Park. Finish the day with dinner at the lodge.

Enjoy the sundowner in nature, and finish the day with dinner at the lodge.

After the eventful experience of an African safari in Hwange National Park and a quiet, bushy sleep at Ganda Lodge, depart with your driver after breakfast for an almost 307-km drive to Matobo Hills Lodge. Before you reach the lodge, you will pass through Bulawayo, a gateway to Matobo National Park. It is the second-largest city in Zimbabwe and the largest city in the country's Matabeleland. The city has parks and charming colonial architecture.

After a 52-km drive from Bulawayo, you will arrive at Matobo Hills Lodge for a check-in at the amazing lodge.

In the afternoon, you will be treated to a 3-course lunch by your guide before you head out to see Cecil John Rhodes's grave, accompanied by the beautiful scenery of the sunset along the way.

Great Zimbabwe

After an amazing experience at Matobo Hills Lodge, grab your breakfast, check out of the hotel and head to Great Zimbabwe with your driver. It is a drive of almost 4 hours, passing through Masvingo which is a small town with palm-lined, wide streets lined with rather shabby buildings. It is 27km away from the Great Zimbabwe Ruins.

Check in at The Lodge at the Ancient City which is a unique hotel built around a granite outcrop in the same style as Great Zimbabwe. It provides stunning views across the valley of Msasa towards the ancient city of Great Zimbabwe. Here, you will stay for 2 nights.

This morning after breakfast, visit the greatest medieval city in sub-Saharan Africa. It is the World Heritage–listed Great Zimbabwe which is one of the nation's most-treasured sights, so much so that the country was named after it. Your driver will take you to your guide who will take you on the tour of the ruins of this ancient place for almost 3 hours, giving you an insight into these old, grandeur ruins of Great Zimbabwe.

After the tour, you will check out from the lodge and drive for about 300km to Harare, the capital. You will overnight at Cresta Lodge Harare. Before you reach your lodge, you will drive through Harare town which is the most populous city in Zimbabwe. It is laid-back with wide avenues, lined with dusty red earth, indigenous plants and blooming jacarandas, giving it a lovely African summertime feel.
