Day 1: Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)
This morning we enjoy the spectacular Victoria Falls themselves and the mighty Zambezi River. Please be ready to get wet when you visit – the spray from the Falls can be seen from up to 20 miles away – hence the local name Mosi oa Tunya (Smoke That Thunders) and many people find they get thoroughly soaked on their visit! After our visit time is at leisure – try one of the optional activities or visit the local markets or old colonial Victoria Falls Hotel that provides an in-depth historical insight, including information on the discovery of the Falls; or explore the colonial town on foot and visit the local trading markets. From bungee jumping to admiring the view, Victoria Falls is an enduring sight that has captured the imagination of visitors for generations.
 
Note: For the sake of practicality, meals in Victoria Falls area are at your own discretion. This allows you to take on activities (some of which include lunch) without having to head back with the group at mealtimes. The town of cafés and restaurants offer a good selection of reasonably priced meals and snacks (allow US$15-$30 per meal). Relax and enjoy at your own leisure.

Day 2: Victoria Falls – Hwange National Park
Distance travelled: +/- 200 Km
Approx driving day: 3 Hours

Today we head for the world famous Hwange National Park. This is Zimbabwe’s largest and best-known park, and was (in the early 19th century) the royal hunting grounds of the Ndebele warrior-king Mzilikazi.  In 1929 it was set aside as a National Park for the benefit of all Zimbabwe’s peoples. The park covers an area of over 14,600 sq kms and is particularly known for its elephant but contains over 100 mammal species including Africa’s “Big 5" (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo), as well as giraffe, cheetah, gemsbok and the brown hyena and abundant bird species. Hwange is also known for its population of the Wild (Painted) Dog. Late in the day we take a locally guided open vehicle game drive and hope to glimpse some of the wildlife in the park before returning to camp for overnight.

Day 3: Hwange National Park – Bulawayo
Distance travelled: +/-330 Km
Approx driving time:  4 Hours

Departing Hwange we drive south to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second city. The afternoon is at leisure. Bulawayo is a pleasant city with broad tree-lined avenues and wide open spaces. There is a fascinating National History Museum, which recounts much of Zimbabwe’s traditional and colonial past, and near the Old Town Hall there is a lively curio market where you can test your bartering skills. A wide range of handicrafts and artwork are on display here most made locally by skilful craftsmen and women.

Accommodation: Burkes Paradise – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes

Day 4: Bulawayo – Matobo National Park - Bulawayo
Distance travelled: +/- 200 Km
Approx driving day: Half day

We explore the Matobo National Park on our half day guided tour. The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings and the area holds a special cultural and spiritual importance to the indigenous people. The reserve also has a large concentration of the Black and White Rhino and providing it’s safe to do so our guides will lead us on foot to search for these magnificent animals. Approaching these massive beasts is a heart racing, breath-taking and memorable experience. At such times it may be comforting to remember that rhinos are herbivores. The park also has a dense population of leopard and black eagle and we hope to catch sight of either (or both) of these creatures. We also keep a look out for giraffe, zebra, ostrich and a variety of antelope and buck species.

Note: There is an option to upgrade to a full day Matobo tour to include various historical sites. The prices is listed in the optional excursions and can be arranged with your crew on the day.

Day 5: Bulawayo – Great Zimbabwe National Monument / Masvingo
Distance travelled: +/- 430 Km
Approx driving day: 8 Hours

Leaving Bulawayo we cross towards the east of the country to the small town of Masvingo. Nearby is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southern Africa: the Great Zimbabwe National Monument. Dating back to 1200AD this place was once the home to an indigenous population of some 10,000 people. A UNESCO World Heritage Site the area holds special significance to the country which took its name. Legend says this was the city where the Queen of Sheeba resided and archaeological finds uncovered gold, coins and porcelain from as far afield as Persia and China, highlighting the importance of the city as a trading post. We camp nearby for easy access and ample time to explore the ruins at leisure and with a local guide who will give you basic information of the area. If you have the energy there is the opportunity to trek to the top of the Hill Enclosure to enjoy a wondrous and spiritual African sunset.

Accommodation: Norma Jean’s - Camping twin share dome tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 6: Mazvingo - Bandula Area, Mozambique
Distance travelled: +/- 380 Km
Approx driving day: 7 Hours

Today, we leave early and stop off in Mutare and if time allows stop at the spectacular Birchenough Bridge (named after Sir Henry Birchenough). The bridge spans the Save River on its 400 km journey through Zimbabwe and Mozambique and is one of many scenic features of eastern Zimbabwe.
Once we have stocked up on supplies we make our way to the border point to leave Zimbabwe and enter Mozambique.

Note: Border formalities entering Mozambique can be time consuming and we may be held here for several hours while the paperwork is completed. Your patience at such times is greatly appreciated. We find the best way to proceed is to let officials work at their own pace and wait patiently. Your tour leader will do most of the work but he/she will be grateful for your understanding if things seem to be taking longer than they should.

Once formalities are complete we make our way to the Bandula area near the Chicamba Dam where our campsite is located within a 550-hectare conservancy. Most people notice immediate differences upon entering Mozambique. Travelling is generally slower and road conditions more demanding. Campsites are not as well appointed. Towns and shops may have fewer goods or less variety. While this can sometimes be frustrating many people find after a few days they find this one of the more appealing and attractive aspects of their overland tour. Overlanding is an adventurous type of travel and these are ‘unconventional’ holidays. We are sure you will enjoy Mozambique but do try to warn you not to expect things to be the same as elsewhere in Africa. 

Accommodation: Casa Msika or similar – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7: Bandula - Vilanculos
Distance travelled: +/- 510 Km
Approx driving day: 10 Hours

This morning, we leave early and make our way to the spectacular Indian Ocean coast. We arrive at Vilankulo (or Vilanculos) some 500km south of Beira and the Gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago. Named after a local tribal chief Gamala Vilankulo Mukoke, the town itself is only 5km long yet hosts numerous activities, and has a lively atmosphere and friendly people. The evening is at leisure to enjoy the town and night life.

Day 8: Vilanculos
This morning we take a dhow boat safari to Magaruque Island, the third Island in the archipelago and the closest to Vilanculos. Here you can enjoy the island at leisure, snorkelling, swimming, walking or simply enjoy lazing on the beach. A delicious seafood lunch will be served. Basic snorkelling equipment and the park fees are included, allowing you to enjoy your day in full.  With its powdery-white, long stretched beaches, crystal turquoise waters, and superb all-year round temperate climate this place is perfect to relax and unwind and watch the world go by.

Day 9: Vilanculos - Inhambane
Distance travelled: +/- 320km
Approx driving day: 6 Hours

We travel further down this dramatic scenic coast via Inhambane to Tofo where we will spend the next 2 nights. Tofo is a small beach town with lovely open beaches, where the pace of life slows allowing you to relax and soak up the atmosphere. There are many activities on offer such as horse riding, snorkelling and scuba. Whale Sharks and Manta Rays inhabit the coastline all year round but are in larger numbers in the summer months (November to March).  Humpback whales usually arrive around mid June and are present until mid October. The natural vegetation of the coastal plain is dune forest, but this has largely been replaced by coconut palms, planted by the Portuguese and local Bitonga people to supply the thriving copra trade. There are some exciting bars and restaurants in the area - sample the local seafood, the area is famous for it - and the local beer (called ‘2M’) or else simply relax and enjoy a good read.  You could also take a trip into Inhambane, the second oldest town in Mozambique to explore the local market.

Accommodation: Fatima’s Nest or similar – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities

Day 10: Inhambane
Today is a free day at leisure to enjoy the local tropical beaches and the many activities on offer. Nearby Inhambane has a rich history and offers a great opportunity to go out and explore the old city. Climb the ladder at the Cathedral of our lady of Conception Inhambane for fantastic 360 degree views of the surrounds. The local markets are also a highlight with fresh fish, seafood and farm produce on sale. You’ll soon see the mix of Arabic and African cultures that create a vibrant, eclectic style of its own.

If the delights of the ocean are your forte, then head out and explore the reefs and colourful marine life found in this warm watery haven.

Day 11: Inhambane – Xai Xai

The Limpopo flows to the south of town in a wide, fertile plain where the main crop is rice. Our accommodation is on the stretch of the beach near the coral reef (which runs parallel to the shore). We spend the night lulled by the sound of the ocean and enjoy the fresh breeze as we unwind from our day.

Day 12: Xai Xai - Hazyview – Kruger National Park, South Africa
Distance travelled: +/- 410 Km
Approx driving day: 7 Hours

From Xai Xai we cross the border into South Africa, where we head for southern Africa’s premier game reserve, ‘Kruger’ and spend the night outside the reserve. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq km. Wildlife is free to roam the whole enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the ‘Big Five’, almost every major African mammal (148 species) is present. There is also prolific birdlife (over 505 species) and over 330 varieties of trees.
This evening we immerse ourselves in the local culture and enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and singing around an open fire to learn more about these fascinating people.

Accommodation: Hotel Numbi – Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities

WIFI: No

Day 13: Hazyview – Kruger National Park
Approx driving time: Full day with game drives

Waking at sunrise, we board our open 4x4 safari vehicles lead by a local expert guide and prepare for our full day game drive. Kruger is home to over 505 species of birds, 148 species of mammals and many reptiles which we enthusiastically search for during the morning and afternoon. The impressive atmosphere of the park enables you to understand why it is held in such high esteem amongst explorers from all over the world who visit this park. We take a well-deserved lunch break en-route before game driving out of the park to our accommodation for the night.
