  Depart from Victoria Falls at 9am for a 2-hour road trip in an air-conditioned minivan, traveling through a rural Nambya village. On arrival in Hwange, you’ll receive a warm Gwango welcome and you’ll check into a Bush Chalet at Gwango Heritage Resort. 

After enjoying a scrumptious lunch at Gobelo Bar & Grill, we’ll take you on a guided exploration of the protected wilderness in and around the Gwango Wildlife Park.  It's truly one of the few locations in the world where thousands of species still co-exist in their natural habitat, unrestrained by fences or the imposing threat of human activity. Our game drive adventure in the dense teak forest ends with sundowner beverages, snacks and a spectacular African sunset.
 

  As the day winds down, we’ll relax fireside, under the stars before enjoying a traditional African dinner and dream-laden evening’s sleep.

The next morning - before sunrise, with coffee, a chorus of birds and the distant roar of lions, you’ll climb onboard a 4x4 safari vehicle with your guide, who introduces you to the intense beauty and drama that fills each day at Hwange National Park.

Offering the greatest concentration and variety of game in Zimbabwe, Hwange National Park is home to over 400 bird types and 107 species of mammals.  The park is one of the few remaining elephant sanctuaries in Africa and is famous for its huge population of elephants, often seen in herds of up to 100.

We’ll return to the camp at 9:30am for a cooked-to-order breakfast before a 10:30am return to Victoria Falls.
