Suggested Itinerary

Day 1: Fly to Victoria Falls

On arrival at the Victoria Falls Airport in Zimbabwe. After clearing immigration, you will travel to the lodge which is situated outside the town. There will be some time to settle into your luxury-tented suite before a light lunch.

The Lodge: They are eight individual thatch lodges at Imbalala Safari Lodge that can accommodate up to 18 guests. All are uniquely decorated and beautifully positioned with spacious verandas opening onto sweeping views of the Zambezi river. The main building is a charming thatched structure, consisting of a lounge, dining room and bar area.

This offers views of both the river and a nearby waterhole, which attracts wildlife throughout the year. A swimming pool and alfresco eating area nestle under classic riverine trees. There are no fences to prevent animal movement, so you can expect to see wildlife and wonderful birdlife along the river bank, as well as in and around the lodge.

Activities: This afternoon has a memorable encounter with a group of habituated Elephants. Go on an Elephant Back Ride through the bush and let the guides tell you about their natural behaviour. Returning to a platform, there will then be an opportunity to feed the Elephants and learn more about their behaviour. In the evening the camp lays on a delicious dinner. Drift off to sleep listening to the sounds of the African night.

Day 2: In Victoria Falls

After breakfast, you head out and explore the Victoria Falls National Park and see the mighty Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side. It is known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya, meaning “the smoke that thunders”.

There will also be some more time to get to know the Elephants. There are also other orphaned wild animals at the camp that you can interact with such as a Cheetah.
