Track Wildlife on Foot

Step out of the safari vehicle and experience Africa on foot! These walks get you close to a wide variety of game on foot and are only possible because of the highly trained, expert guides who accompany you and intimately know the territory and behavior of these animals.

Watch Elephants From the Deck in Nehimba

The elephant is the icon of Hwange, and our private concession at Nehimba Lodge is set right on the elephants’ migration trail. They often congregate by the hundreds at Nehimba, and the large bulls of the herd enjoy our lodge’s swimming pool as a gathering spot and a handy source of drinking water. You’ll find yourself dining by candle light on the lodge’s deck within just a few yards of these mighty creatures and be able to observe their social interactions—it’s unforgettable.

Ride The Elephant Express

Enjoy travel—and game viewing!—by rail, an experience that harkens back to yesteryear as we enter and depart Hwange aboard an open-air vintage rail car for a ride that provides a fantastic opportunity for photography en route to the next leg of the adventure.

Unique Perspectives on Wildlife

You’ll experience Hwange by rail, by open-sided 4WD vehicle, and on foot with your highly trained guide. You also observe wildlife from a unique waterhole-level blind where you’ll get fantastic photos and see the animals at incredibly close range.

Community and Conservation is Woven into Your Safari

In a land where local villages once had nothing to gain from safari tourism, we—together with our Zimbabwe partners—are changing that by actively involving communities. Camelthorn Lodge is on land rented from the community, providing income and employment. We’ve engaged in programs to help upgrade local schools and provide safe drinking water and health care. With the benefits of wildlife conservation more tangible, there has been a dramatic decrease in poaching. Your presence has a direct positive impact on communities and wildlife.

The Zambezi River spills into the chasm of Batoka Gorge at Victoria Falls, a thunderous World Heritage Site and the unforgettable introduction to our safari. We experience a Zimbabwean sunset on a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi, on the lookout for hippo and other creatures drawn to the waters, tour the best viewpoints of the Falls, and stay at Batonka Guest Lodge, with its tranquil setting in a quiet area of Victoria Falls.
