Days 3 - 5:
Road transfer to Gorges Lodge.
With possibly one of the most spectacular settings in the country, Gorges Lodge is located 22km downstream from Victoria Falls, perched on the edge of Batoka Gorge 250 metres above the Zambezi River. Nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking expanse of the gorge that overwhelms you when you step out onto the Bar Deck for the first time.
Home to an incredible population of raptures, stunning array of butterflies, wild flora and tame bushbuck; some guests do nothing more than relax on the decks and viewing stations absorbing the views and surrounds. Others choose to swim, read, wonder around the gardens or explore the mighty Victoria Falls and its thrill seeking activities only a 20 minute drive away (a shuttle runs several times a day).
Activities include: guided visit to Victoria Falls (includes entrance fee), tour of the craft village, local village and school visit, evening traditional dancing display, black eagle viewing with sundowners, guided walk along the edge of the gorge with sundowners and a sundowner cruise.
Days 6 - 8:
Road transfer to Bomani Tented Lodge.
A charming camp with that indefinable "something" Bomani Tented Lodge is situated in a private concession in an exclusive area of south east Hwange National Park. Overlooking Bomani Pan which lies on the Ngoma Plain this is a vast and incredibly beautiful area dotted with pans, ponds, wetlands, palm savannah and grasslands, supporting an abundance of wildlife.
Activities include game drives on the concession and into Hwange National Park. Night drives and walks are conducted within the camp's private concession. An interesting full day activity is the "pump" run which takes place during the dry season (May to November). Guest can participate in the delivery of diesel, spare parts and provisions to the pump attendants who look after the waterholes maintained by Bomani along the southern side of the park. Upliftment of the local community has always played a very important role in the life of Bomani. Guests are encouraged to visit neighbouring villages where they will gain an insight into Ndebele people's lives. This is a genuine, rewarding and heart-warming experience.
