Walk through the tall rustling grass of the African bush, tracking one of the world’s mightiest and most endangered species, on foot! Feel an unrivalled sense of awe when you encounter these magnificent beasts for the first time in their natural habitat, and learn more about rhinos in one of the places where they are still found roaming free. Then continue the search for the rest of the Big Five while exploring Hwange National Park and its surrounds, one of the most untouched wilderness areas in Zimbabwe, in a range of game-viewing activities such as privately guided game walks and night drives, and watch the sky paint itself in amber and golden hues from a vantage point known as “World’ View” that has special historical significance to local Zimbabweans and British Empire builders alike. End off the tour with one of Africa’s most awe-inspiring attractions, the mighty Victoria Falls and discover the true majesty of the Zambezi River onboard a traditional East African dhow.
