Overview

Zimbabwe is a nation of spectacular natural beauty, friendly people and rich culture. The tour covers towns like Victoria Falls – known to locals as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’ – is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the sheer power of this massive body of water plunging into the Zambezi Gorge is awe-inspiring and unforgettable. Lake Kariba, with its game-rich shores and islands, is an idyllic safari spot featuring mind-blowing sunsets; Hwange National Park is known for its huge herds of elephants; and a kayak trip down the Zambezi through the Mana Pools National Park will appeal to the intrepid traveller, providing close encounters with crocodiles, hippos and a host of other wildlife.

morning game drives

Bulawayo, Burkes Paradise,

Afternoon at Leisure/Optional Activities

Bulawayo , Burkes Paradise

On the 26 March, 1902 at the age of 49 Cecil John Rhodes died in Muizenberg, Cape Town. Despite the fact that the Boer War still raged, his body was sent on an epic railway journey through war-torn South Africa to Rhodesia to be laid to rest at this spot.

Great Zimbabwe Ruins ,Norma Jeane's Lake View Resort,

Once Zimbabwe’s capital, the ancient city of Great Zimbabwe is the biggest and most significant stone archaeological complex in sub-Saharan Africa. It is also one of its oldest – thought to date back to the 11th century and second only to South Africa’s Mapungwe. Composed entirely of rectangular granite blocks stacked on top of one another without the use of mortar, the walls and towers of the city measure up to 12 metres in places, and, unsurprisingly, Great Zimbabwe was designated a World Heritage Site in 1986. Visitors can look forward to wandering through these ancient stone structures and immersing themselves in the history of this important heritage site.

Gonarezhou National Park, Chipinda Pools Camp

The riverine fringe provides excellent birding and with some luck, one might get a sighting of one of the resident Pel’s Fishing Owls. Game in the vicinity of the camp is extremely relaxed with groups of nyala, kudu, impala and elephant happily passing through camp.

Gonarezhou National Park , Chipinda Pools Camp,

Gonarezhou meaning ‘a place of elephants’, is Zimbabwe’s second-largest national park and home to over 10 000 elephants. The park extends across a vast area of floodplains, baobab-dotted scrubland, mopane woodland and pale orange sandstone cliffs. It is home to 4 of Africa’s ‘Big Five’ – elephant, leopard, lion and buffalo – as well as a multiplicity of other animal and bird species.

Eastern Highlands ,Musangano Lodge,

Eastern Highlands, Musangano Lodge,

The well-wooded park includes 159 hectares of landscaped gardens built around perennial streams which form a small lake.

You gotta go to Chobe!

OK we did a custom 9 day tour (Vic Falls, Chobe, Maun, Okavango) not the 13 day tour. But the comments are the same... Falcon was amazing! Very professional and always fast to respond. We were coordinating groups from Sydney and Montreal with two different languages. No problem! We made lots of changes. No problem! We phoned their head office in Vic Falls for a chat. No problem! Our agent, Takudzwa, was wonderful. Highly recommended. As for the trip... Victoria Falls was a little dry but still astounding. Maun and Okavango were in drought and very hot (42C). But still a good amount of game. Lots of lion. Recommend staying at least as far in as Chiefs Island. But the MUST DO was Chobe. We have done lots of game drives in Africa. This was astounding! Wonderful lodges, excellent games drives (land and water), so much to see! This was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you Flacon Safaris!
Very Professional and Well organised Team

Trip of a life time

The overall experience was way out of this world, each game park we visited had its own story to tell. The guide was very friendly and he had perfect knowledge of everything.
