Elephant Eco-Lodge Safari

7 days elephant safari from Victoria Falls, via Botswana and returning to Victoria Falls: spend the week experiencing the magnificent wilderness of Southern Africa. This safari is a nature lover's paradise, seeing Hwange National Park and Chobe National Park teeming with the bountiful wildlife of Zimbabwe and Botswana. From a guided tour of the Victoria Falls to the incredible array of wildlife surrounding the African waterholes.

This experience will remain with you for life! Spend a full day game viewing in Hwange National Park, be it watching elephants at a waterhole or lions fighting for their share of the kill. Sites, sounds, smells… they all seem enhanced somehow. You hear the catch of your breath as a kingfisher hovers over the seemingly still water – until it plummets in a brilliant blur.

Relax on a sunset boat cruise while sipping on your favorite drink, enjoy a second game drive - this time in Chobe National Park, and experience a guided tour of Victoria Falls. This is the new, miraculous reality that is your life for the next few days, everything becomes brighter, bolder, bigger and more beautiful than you could ever imagine.
