A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Matobo Hills has to be one of the most spiritual and beautiful places in Zimbabwe. The gravity-defying boulders scattered all over the countryside has created a quite unique and distinctly mysterious ‘balancing rock’ landscape. Meaning ‘Bald Heads’ in Ndebele it’s from this incredible landscape Matobo Hills derives its name.

Day 3 – 5: Hwange National Park
Depart the Matopas for Bomani Tented Camp in the Hwange National Park. This journey takes approximate 3 hours and 30 minutes. Situated inside the Ngamo Forest area, Bomani is located within a 5,000-acre remote private reserve: only 1.5 kilometres away from Ngamo’s gate to Hwange National Park. The area was once an ancient fossil lake, which over time became submerged by Kalahari sands from the west. Today, the expansive plains are dotted with natural water pans and Ilala Palms; offering a peaceful sanctuary to the countless herds of wildlife that call the area home. The main lodge overlooks Bomani pan and comprises of an open dining room, bar area and lounge, built on a spectacular viewing platform. You can enjoy your breakfast whilst watching zebra and wildebeest quietly graze, or sip a sundowner as giraffe and elephant soak up the day’s final rays. During the chilly winter evenings, our open fireplaces keep the room warm and cosy. You can even snuggle up under a blanket around the outdoor fire pit and enjoy a glass of red wine with canapés, whilst listening to the sounds of the African bush. Spend three nights at Bomani tented camp including all meals, local brand drinks, scheduled safari activities (4×4 game drive and walking safaris).

Gorges Lodge is unlike any other lodge you will ever visit, built on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, some 250 breathtaking metres above the mighty Zambezi. Gorges comprises of ten beautiful stone and thatch cottages, dotted along the Gorges edge, in front of our luscious landscaped gardens. Each individual en-suite cabin is finished beautifully and boasts a private garden and decked veranda: the ideal place to watch the sunrise or the sunset over the Zambezi. The elegantly decorated lounge, dining room and bar offer extraordinary views, right over the gorge into Zambia. You can also look on in amazement, as black eagles and lanner falcons soar overhead. Gorges Lodge is home to an incredible population of raptors, as well as a stunning array of butterflies and wild flora. Several tame bushbuck, baboon and vervet monkey also roam the grounds, in the hope of finding a treat. The lodge is close enough to the Falls for guests to enjoy all the activities the area has to offer, whilst being far enough away to create the illusion of complete isolation. The lodge is only a 20-minute drive to the lively town, and a private shuttle service runs several times every day. Spend two nights at Gorges Lodge including all meals, 2 activities, return Victoria Falls airport transfers, one return shuttle to Victoria Falls town per staying night.
