  Depart from Victoria Falls at 7am on the Extracity luxury bus. 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 Hwange National 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 ends with sundowner beverages, snacks and a spectacular African sunset.
 

  Back at camp,the day winds down with us relaxing fireside, under the stars before enjoying a delicious dinner and dream-laden evening’s sleep.

The next morning - before sunrise, with coffee, a chorus of birds and the distant roar of lions, we climb onboard a 4x4 safari vehicle with your guide, who introduces us to the intense beauty and drama that fills the mornings 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 mid morning for a cooked-to-order breakfast before freshing up and checking out of our rooms. After lunch, we embark on a 2-hour BaNambya cultural experience which ends just in time for our transfer to the bus stop and our return to Victoria Falls.
