A safari and beach combo, with Victoria Falls as an addition. Visit Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, experience a big game safari in Zimbabwe's premier wildlife reserve, Hwange National Park and a chill out on the beaches of Mauritius. A stay at Victoria Falls is so much more than just seeing the marvel that is the Falls, here you can enjoy a host of activities from boat trips on the Zambezi River to fishing, rhino tracking and cultural visits. Victoria Falls River Lodge is a haven of serenity on the banks of the Zambezi River.

A light aircraft will fly you to Hwange National Park for your stay at Somalisa Camp. Here you can expect a top-class safari in the 'land of the giants' as it is known. Aside from the big elephant herds you can see an abundance of other wildlife on guided walks, game drives and night drives.
