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 Mos au 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 David Livingstone museum - easily accessible and 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 bungi 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 back with the group 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.

Accommodation: Vic Falls Rest Camp - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast
WIFI: Yes

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


We leave Vic Falls for the world renowned 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.

Accommodation: Hwange Main Camp or similar - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 3: Hwange National Park - Khami Ruins - Bulawayo
Distance travelled: +/-280 km
Approx driving time: 5 Hours


Departing Hwange we drive south to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second city. Before reaching the city we visit the Khami Ruins, an important archaeological site and former trading centre dating from the 16th century. 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 skillful craftsmen and women.

Accommodation: Burke’s Paradise Backpackers - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes

Day 4: Bulawayo - Matobos 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, breathtaking 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) 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.

Accommodation: Burke’s Paradise Backpackers - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes

Day 5: Bulawayo - Tshipise (South Africa) 
Distance travelled: +/-375 km
Approx driving time: 6 Hours


Leaving Bulawayo, we continue south to the border at Beitbridge. Completing formalities we cross the Limpopo River - the second largest in South Africa and an important water source for this arid region. The Limpopo also acts as a natural boundary between South Africa and its neighbours Botswana  and Zimbabwe, before it flows through Mozambique to the Indian Ocean. We continue to Tshipise, a town situated in the northern Limpopo province. Our campsite is located at Forever Resorts at the foot of one of Limpopo’s rolling koppies set adjacent the Honnet Nature Reserve. There is hot springs in the area which are surrounded by dense woodland comprising of Mopani, Red Bushwillow, Jakkalsbessie trees - and the third largest Baobab tree in South Africa.

Note: Border formalities entering South Africa can be time consuming and your patience is greatly appreciated. We usually find the best way to proceed at border crossing points is to wait patiently while officials work at their own pace. A good book is highly recommended. Your tour leader will do most of the work but he (or she) will be grateful for your understanding if things seem to be taking longer than they should.

Accommodation: Forever resort - Camping twin share dome tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 6: Tshipise - Hazyview
Distance travelled: +/- 410 km
Approx driving time: 8 Hours


We continue south toward southern Africa’s premier game reserve, the "Kruger". We spend the night in Hazyview a short distance 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 entire area and this has become an incredibly diverse landscape for both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the "Big Five", almost every major African mammal (148 species) is present. The birdlife is prolific (over 505 species) and there are over 330 varieties of flora. This evening we immerse ourselves in the local culture and enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and singing around an open fire. It is an opportunity to learn something of the way of life of these fascinating local people.

Accommodation: Hotel  Numbi - Camping  in  twin  share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 7: 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.

Accommodation: Hotel Numbi - Camping  in  twin  share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 8: Hazyview - Xai-Xai (Mozambique)
Distance travelled: 480 km
Approx driving day: 9-10 Hours

Today we leave Kruger for Mozambique. Again we may find border formalities lengthy but once completed we pass into the new country and continue east and north toward  the Indian Ocean coast. Travelling is slower and road conditions more demanding than in Zimbabwe or South Africa.

Similarly, campsites are less well appointed, towns and shops have fewer goods or less variety. This can sometimes be frustrating but many  people come to find that after a few days they are used to the conditions and it becomes one of the more appealing and attractive aspects of the tour. Overlanding is an adventurous type of travel and not a "conventional" holiday. We do urge you not to expect things to be the same as elsewhere in Africa.

The town of  Xai Xai is the capital of Gaza Province and situated on the banks of the Limpopo River. Rudyard Kipling called this the ‘great grey greasy’ river, and where we see it the Limpopo flows to the south of town in a wide, fertile plain providing irrigation to the main crop, rice. Our accommodation for the evening is a stretch of  the beach near the coral reef which runs parallel to the shore.

Accommodation: Montego Beach Resort or similar - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Xai-Xai - Vilanculos
Distance travelled: 500 km
Approx driving time: 9 Hours


We continue north past the coastal town of Inhambane to Vilanculos one of Mozambiques' best known visitor attractions. This is a fairly long day driving but we believe it is worthwhile to reach the beach and Vilanculos to allow time for the Dhow safari which follows tomorrow.

Accommodation: Baobab Beach camp or similar - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes

Optional Activities:
Scuba Diving from US$150
Horse riding US$ 55
Kayak US$20, Island tours from US$60
Windsurfing US$ 40

Day 10: Vilanculos
This morning we take a Dhow (traditional sailing  boat) to Magaruque Island, the third Island in the archipelago and the closest to Vilanculos. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy the island at leisure, snorkelling, swimming, walking, hike to the ruins of a 19 Century fort or simply enjoy lazing on the beach. A delicious seafood lunch will be served under the shady palm fringes. Basic snorkelling equipment and the park fees are included, allowing  you  to  enjoy  your day in full. With its powdery-white, long stretched beaches, coconut fringed palms, 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 11: Vilanculos - Tofo
Distance travelled: 320 km
Approx driving time: 5-6 Hours


We turn south and drive to another of Mozambique’s attractions, the coastal town of Inhambane and the nearby Praia (beach) de Tofo. Time here is at leisure - enjoy the tropical beaches and activities typically available. Inhambane itself has a rich history and a fascinating ‘old’ city. Climb the ladder at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Conception for spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounds, or explore the local markets where fresh fish, seafood and farm produce are on sale. You’ll notice the mix of Arabic and African cultures here which come together to form a vibrant, eclectic style of its own. Tofo itself is a small coastal town with open beaches and a relaxed pace of life.

Optional activities such as horse riding, snorkelling and scuba are normally available. Whale Sharks and Manta Rays inhabit the coastline year round but are in larger numbers in the summer months (Nov-Mar). Humpback whales are usually present June / October. The natural vegetation of the coastal plain is dune forest but at Tofo it has largely been replaced by coconut palms which were planted by the Portuguese colonists. Today the local Bitonga people used them to supply the thriving copra trade. Sample the local seafood - the area is well known for it - or try the local beer (called "2M").

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.
