7 Day Vic Falls to JoBurg




Itinerary

Day 1: Victoria Falls+

Today, the adventure begins but feel free to explore your surroundings before your welcome meeting. Your time in the small town of Victoria Falls can be filled with a variety of activities. Take a helicopter or microlight flight over the Victoria Falls, and let your breath be taken away by the sight of the largest wall of falling water in the world, cascading across two countries into a narrow gorge. Make sure to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is also one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. When you stand in front of the Victoria Falls you will understand why the indigenous Tonga tribe, gave it the beautiful and descriptive name of Mosi-Oa-Tunya (The Smoke That Thunders). After introductions, your Tour Leader will review the details of your trip and recommend a good selection of restaurants from which you can choose to experience the cuisine on offer. We recommend you book an extra day or two pre-tour to make the most of your stay.

Day 2 - Victoria Falls to Gwango (Hwange area) (B,D)+

After breakfast, we continue to Gwango situated just outside Hwange National Park, named after a local chief. This park is the largest park in Zimbabwe occupying roughly 14,650 square kilometres. Look forward to an included afternoon open vehicle game drive. After dinner, you can go on an optional night game drive which will give you the opportunity to discover nocturnal animals such as porcupines, civet cats, genets and leopard.

Day 3: Gwango (Hwange area) to Bulawayo (B,D)+

We head south towards Matobo National Park, which is at the Matobo or Matopos Hills, a scenic area of granite kopjes and wooded valleys. Banff Lodge, in the leafy suburb of Ilanda, Bulawayo will be your home for the next two nights.

Day 4: Bulawayo (Matobo National Park) (B,L,D)+

You will enjoy a full day excursion today, which includes a game drive and a guided rhino walk in Matobo National Park. Visitors to Matobo National Park regularly spot white and black rhino, sable antelope, and impala, among other wildlife.

Day 5: Bulawayo to Musina (B,D)+

We cross the Zimbabwe / South Africa Border and overnight at the Bolayi Game Lodge. Klein Bolayi Game Lodge is set in the Limpopo Valley, in the heart of the world`s largest concentration of Baobab trees, surrounded by fascinating granite outcrops in pristine bushveld vegetation.

Day 6: Musina to Johannesburg (B)+

Our last night is spent in Johannesburg – South Africa’s largest city – also known as Egoli or The City of Gold, referring to the gold mining history of this fast-paced city. Book an additional night or two post tour to make the most of your stay. A visit to Gold Reef City, the amusement park and museum built on an old mine shaft will give you the opportunity for a ride on the Shaft of Terror, a vertical-drop roller coaster that is known as the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Africa due to its sheer 47-metre drop. For the historically inclined there is the ever-popular Soweto tour or just jump on a Hop-On-Hop-Off bus to discover Johannesburg at your own pace.

Day 7: Johannesburg (B)+

Our last goodbye, a healthy breakfast, and the end of another incredible tour.
