This back to basic, semi participatory Hwange Experience will take you back in time with the ‘charisma and charm’ of how the Safari Industry first began. During your stay in the National Park you will encounter places that not many a safari enthusiast would ever get to experience; sleeping in tents under the star-lit night sky with nothing but a canvas wall of your tent separating you from the outside! Jackals barking, Lions roaring as they advertise their presence to all and Owls hooting are just some of the night sounds that you can look forward to hearing during your three nights. An early morning fire with coffee and biscuits or dinner around the evening fire, you will truly experience the romance the African wilderness has to offer.

Summary of Itinerary

Day 1

Transfer and Overnight Hwange National Park Picnic Site

Camping along the Zambezi River on your first night is a great way to begin the adventure, a mere one hour from Victoria Falls it’s a great way to get out of the town and straight into the wilderness of the Zambezi National park. Underneath the ever green Natal Mahoganies our camp for the night will be situated and our refuge from the mid-day heat. Hippos basking in the shallows of the flowing river will be our closest neighbors for the evening. Sunset along the river will be enjoyed along with a chilled glass of wine or a Gin and Tonic. Dinner around the fire this evening will most certainly be an enjoyable experience with the nocturnal mammals now out and about feeding and keeping us entertained with all their evening calls.

Day 2

Game Drives

Mornings along the river are always spectacular with the sunrise and a mug of hot coffee to begin the day, we pack up camp and spend the rest of the morning exploring the terrain, as lunch approaches we will head for the river side once again, and under the shadiest trees we will prepare a fresh lunch, with ice cold drinks. A short siesta after lunch which gives time to reminisce over the last 24hours in one of the hammocks or remain where you are with a book in hand and a glass of wine in the other. A word of advice, make sure that your binoculars are close by as with everything out in the wilderness anything can happen at any time. After a cup of tea and biscuits we will continue on our way to Chamabondo, by sunset we will be in or new campsite for the evening situated opposite a water hole you could be in for an interesting evening, with all the visitors out to come and have a drink of water. A scrumptious supper freshly prepared on the roaring fire by your guide under the star-lit night sky.

Day 3

Transfer to Hwange National Park Campsite

This morning you will be up quite early to pack up camp, as we prepare for the next destination of this incredible National Park you find yourself in; after coffee and a freshly made breakfast a slow drive through the Park stopping at many of the water holes along the way. A glass of chilled white wine with a scrumptious lunch; a siesta may be in need and with the hammocks under another shady tree; this is a real possibility. Getting to the camp site in the early afternoon and setting up camp, a decision on whether or not one last evening drive is made as with more roads to explore and an incurable amount of excitement, this really should be taken up. Dinner will be prepared on and served around the evening fire with stories of the last three days being told. A complete sense of humility will be felt sitting in complete relaxation in the middle of the unknown amongst all the unique night sounds.

Day 4

Transfer to your Pick up Destination

Wake up this morning will be a slightly later one as breakfast is prepared around the fire one last time, before packing up and transferring through parts of the Park to your next destination.
