From Victoria Falls, the world's most impressive waterfalls to Hwange National Park, one of Africa's greatest game reserves, this is an excellent intro to Zimbabwe in an effortless safari tour.
Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the World (*quick quiz, what are the seven natural wonders of the world? See below for answers). A mile wide and 100 metres down, the Zambezi River pours over a sheer cliff's edge into a narrow gourge that roars with power and sends plumes of spray high into the sky.
Hwange National Park is the size of Wales. Wildlife converges around waterholes and the scenery, game viewing and the wilderness experience make Hwange one of Africa's great game reserves.
In 7 days you will experience a first-rate African safari without lifting a finger or worrying about a thing: the whole trip includes door-to-door transfers from start to finish in a safe, comfortable air conditioned vehicle. And what's more, there are no weight limits like you get on fly-in safaris, which usually limit you to 10kg of soft baggage. The vehicle has a large trailer so your seven safari outfits can jolly well come too.
