Zimbabwe’s national parks redefine adventure as these are Africa’s wild frontiers. You can walk with rhinos and then disappear into rugged mountains, canoe past hippos and then find carnivores on the ancient plains. This two-week safari explores the country’s mostly unknown and unseen parks with eight distinctive destinations that dance with originality and delight in their wildlife charm. Intrepid and evocative, this is a journey into Africa in ways rarely seen.
Victoria Falls – Fresh Perspectives on Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls rumbles insatiably into a narrow chasm and spray rises, ascending over 300 meters into the air, visible from your lodge on the Zambezi River. Travel to the falls by boat, and the further you go downriver, the louder the roar of the water. Stop at an island on the precipice to be surrounded by the relentless power of Victoria Falls. Then walk alongside the falls, crossing to the opposite side of the chasm for an immersion in the visuals. The spray rains down and sometimes you get soaked before running for the cover of bushes and appreciating the brief moments when the entire falls are visible in a single view. From here you can descend, to a peaceful spot beneath the falls, ideal for recovering your breath and smiling about the spectacle you have just seen. Return to the lodge by road for a relaxed evening at your lodge.
