This morning, transfer from Victoria Falls to Hwange National Park for a three night stay at Ivory Lodge in one of their rustic tree-house style rooms. Hwange’s grasslands and mopane woods are home to a fantastic variety of wildlife including one of the continent’s largest elephant populations, lions and the endangered African wild dog. During your stay, enjoy the activities of the lodge including game drives, walking safaris and hide visits.

Hotel: Ivory Lodge

Day 4 to 6 - Matopos National Park

Today, transfer to Amalinda Lodge, located in fascinating Matopos National Park. The local Ndebele people gave the area its name, meaning ‘Bald Heads’ on account of the beautiful landscape with its huge granite boulders that seemingly balance on top of each other.

The Park is one of the last bastions of both the black and white rhino and tracking them as well as other wildlife by vehicle or foot is included in your stay. There are also trips to explore the caves with their 2,000 year old San rock art and Worlds View, a scenic viewpoint where Cecil Rhodes is buried. You will also have the opportunity to experience the local hospitality of the people on cycling trips through the villages.
