Day 1: Arrive Nehimba Lodge

Today you are picked up in Victoria Falls town and drive the two and a half hours to Hwange main, where you then switch vehicles and drive the remaining 1.5 hours on to Nehimba Lodge. Settle in to one of seven luxury chalets offered here and get a feel for your unique surroundings. The lodge is situated on the edge of a mopane forest in northern Hwange Park and overlooks a very popular pan that attracts Hwange's 'giants', or elephants, in large numbers. Take a dip in the pool to cool off at the end of the day and see if the elephants get close enough to take a drink!

Day 2-3: Hwange National Park Days

Spend your days here experiencing the wildlife of Hwange National Park. Choose your activities everyday as you venture in to the park with a professional and licensed guide. Game drives and walking safaris are offered every morning and evening. Or spend your time in the Nehimba Hide watching for wildlife, including the elephant-hunting lions that frequent the area. 

Go on a night drive with a filtered spotlight to see species that prefer to show themselves at night, such as hyena, leopard, civets, porcupine, and genet cats. Visit Mandavu Dam for more wildlife spotting or some great birding. Take a full-day excursion to the nearby Mtoa Ruins located two hours from the lodge on top of a low granite kopje. Your adventures at Nehimba vary daily and the wildlife sightings are unique and exciting each day.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
