DAY 01

Upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by members of the Gorges Lodge team. Their vehicle will take you on a 30 minute road transfer to Gorges Lodge. You may take some time to familiarise yourself with the break-taking surroundings before a shuttle takes you to a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. Drinks will be served on the cruise. After that, you will be taken back to the lodge for a deserving 3 course dinner in the dining area.

DAY 02

Rise and have your breakfast before taking a shuttle to a private game reserve for an elephant back safari. After the safari, the shuttle will return you to Gorges Lodge for lunch. Then take a second shuttle into Victoria Falls town for a guided tour of the Victoria Falls and a bit of curio shopping. After seeing the Falls at eye level, the next step is to have the eagle's perspective. You will experience the Victoria Falls via helicopter ride before your return trip to the lodge. Savour a sun-downer while you relax on the deck, then a 3 course meal served in the garden.

DAY 03

Today, you will encounter the second of the big five in a big way. After breakfast, you will take the shuttle to the Walk with Lions activity. Please read the important information on this link. Lunch will be served picnic style on the banks of the Zambezi River, and then you will experience the nature sanctuary and crocodile farm. The day ends with a trip back to the lodge for sundowners, a swim and 3 course dinner.

DAY 04

The day starts earlier than usual with a trip to the school to meet the children and join them for assembly. Then you will return to the lodge for your last breakfast at Gorges Lodge for this trip. Pack up your bags and take a shuttle to the Victoria Falls Airport, where you will board a small charter plane to take you to the Bomani Airstrip in Hwange. Take a nap or have a walk about the camp before taking a sun-downer game drive into Hwange National Park, then a night drive back to Bomani Tented Lodge for dinner under the stars.

DAY 05

Start the day with an early morning game drive in Hwange National Park, and a walk through the forest in the Ngamo area. You will be escorted by highly experienced and licensed guides. Return to Bomani for brunch and then take pictures in the blind with a view of the Bomani water hole. In the afternoon, you will take another game drive to the Major Pan where you can watch the sun set while enjoying snacks and drinks. At the end of the day, you will take a night drive back to Bomani Tented Lodge for a campfire dinner with a 3 course meal with refreshments.

DAY 06

All of today will be spent outdoors with a trip to the water holes which are managed by Imvelo Safaris, so make sure your cameras are fully charged. During the dry season, water needs to be pumped into the water holes by diesel engines which you will help to supply. A picnic meal will be served while you rest under the trees at the Mfagaan Pan. Then its a slow drive going from pan to pan while you see game along the way. Back at the lodge, you will probably need a shower before having refreshments by the campfire. Then dinner will be served in the lodge's dining room.

DAY 07

Today you will take an early morning trip to Ngamo village for a tour of the community as well as the school. After that, you will return to the lodge for brunch and a rest or spend some time in the blind for game spotting at the water hole. You can either take an afternoon walk, or a game drive visiting different pans, then a night drive back to Bomani Lodge. Drinks by the camp fire will be served before your final dinner of the trip.

DAY 08

On your last day of the packaged trip, you will have an early breakfast and pack up for your return trip. You will take a 4 x 4 transfer to the Halfway House on the Victoria Falls - Bulawayo highway.
