Full description
Going on a day trip to the esteemed Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe affords tourists the unique opportunity of visiting one of the most diverse and vast wildlife parks in the world. The journey begins at your hotel in Victoria Falls town, from where you will be picked up for a sunrise departure. Your minibus will make its way to the Hwange National Park, which is located approximately 2 hours away from the hotel. Upon arrival at the Painted Dog Centre, you will be welcomed by a professional guide, who will tell you all about the Painted Dogs as you interact with them.  Your knowledgeable and experienced guide will then take you on an unforgettable two-and-a-half-hour-long game drive within the Hwange National Park in a comfortable, open-back vehicle. Next, you will be treated to a delectable lunch at the renowned Hwange Safari Lodge, where you can enjoy the tastes and smells of traditional Zimbabwean cuisine. After lunch, you may relax at the swimming pool.  As the suns heat cools most animals head for the water holes which allows us a great opportunity to see multiple species when taken on your second Game Drive. It has been noted that the best Game Viewing is when the sun sets and is a spectacular way to see Zimbabwe's unique wildlife. You will be transferred back to your hotel in Victoria falls, getting back at approximately 18:00.

This experience was phenomenal. I’ve been on many tours and the depth and breadth that you get from this experience is beyond worth it. Seeing the animals is a fantastic experience, but the real gold in this experience is the richness in what you learn. You will understand how interconnected the natural world is and hopefully you’ll also reflect on how you are a member of this beautiful system. I know I sound a bit like a hippie, but I honestly can say you will get a lot out of this experience regardless of what made you choose this experience (the animals, the knowledge, or both). Lastly, and probably most importantly, our guides made sure that we left with an impactful experience. They explained in detail all of our choices and why they were making the decisions they were making and they checked each other and made sure we absorbed the knowledge. So I recommend this to anyone heading to Zimbabwe.
