Our group tours are also offered on a private basis, and can be customized: Our experienced travel consultants will design bespoke, private itineraries according to your needs and budget. 

Explore the two neighboring wildlife regions of Chobe and Hwange, starting and ending in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.  This is an unforgettable six-day safari package in Botswana and Zimbabwe, offering outstanding game viewing activities, with all park fees included. Just as great elephant herds migrate between the wildlife-rich regions of Chobe and Hwange, so too can safari enthusiasts explore these two magnificent regions. Our JENMAN Select Chobe & Hwange Hideaway safari lodges boast locations that are far from the crowds so guests can experience a unique African bucket-list destination with a truly personalized feel. Experience the beauty of the bush from different viewpoints – on foot through guided safari walks, on 4 wheels in open safari vehicles, and on the water, either with a sunset cruise on the Zambezi or a river cruise along the Chobe.

Highlights of the Tour

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

The mighty Zambezi River plummets over the cliffs at Victoria Falls to create one of the most spectacular sheets of falling water in the world. After the rainy season, the spray generated from the falls can be seen from over 5km away, and the loud crashing of the water has earned this natural wonder the nickname, “the smoke that thunders”. This geographical wonder is a bucket-list destination on your Zimbabwe safari.

Kazuma Forest Reserve, Botswana

Nestled within one of the world’s busiest elephant corridors, Kazuma Forest Reserve lies between two of Africa’s greatest wild parks: Chobe National Park and Hwange National Park. Woodlands, forests, open plains and pans make up the very diverse habitat that a variety of wildlife call home, including lion, leopard, wildebeest, the rare sable, giraffe, buffalo and more. The elephant sightings in Kazuma Forest reserve are phenomenal and a highlight of this leg on your Botswana safari.

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s largest and oldest national park, Hwange National Park is an excellent destination for those wishing to encounter the Big Five on safari. Every year without fail this gem has treated visitors to truly magical game viewing in the heart of the Zimbabwe bush. Hwange is famous for its massive elephant herds, second only to Chobe in Botswana. With no permanent water in Hwange, over 60 artificial water points have been installed over the years, supporting the numbers of elephant and other game significantly. Enjoy game drives, guided walks and more while on safari in Hwange.

Pre-Tour Information

Departure

The Chobe & Hwange Hideaway departs from Victoria Falls. Whilst it is our every intention to adhere to the above-mentioned itinerary, there may on occasion be a necessity to make alterations in order to make the tour more enjoyable or practical. Therefore, please treat the itinerary as a guide only.

Transport

You will be picked up at Victoria Falls International Airport. For transfers between Victoria Falls and Hwange (or vice versa), 2×4 vehicles may be utilised. All luggage, besides hand luggage and photo equipment, is carried on the vehicle or trailer roof racks to ensure maximum comfort in the vehicle. Some game drives may be conducted in open-sided safari vehicles. Please reconfirm flight details at the time of booking. Airport transfers are usually conducted in sedan vehicles or minibuses. The game drives take place in open 4×4 vehicles.

Travel Insurance

Please note that travel and cancellation insurance is mandatory for every guest travelling with JENMAN African Safaris. All insurance is solely the responsibility of our guests. Please ensure you arrange your own insurance with protection for the full duration of your journey to cover personal injury, damage and loss of personal items including but not limited to camera equipment and other electronic items, medical expenses, repatriation expenses and loss of luggage, etc. Please speak to your travel agent if you require assistance.

Upon your arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be collected and transferred to your Vic Falls hotel accommodation. The afternoon is spent on a leisurely cruise along the Zambezi River. And after the sun sets, enjoy a delicious dinner at the Palm Restaurant in Victoria Falls.
Today, we make our way to Kasane, Botswana, for the start of your Botswana safari. Take a classic Chobe River Cruise in style and enjoy lunch on board with excellent river-based game viewing. From Chobe National Park you will be transferred by road to your Botswana safari accommodation at Camp Kuzuma, in the Kazuma Forest Reserve. Expect phenomenal elephant sightings here.
This day is spent searching for African wildlife on the Camp Kuzuma concession deep in the heart of the Botswana bush. Enjoy an afternoon guided game walk before setting off at sunset for a classic night game drive. As temperatures grow cooler, the wildlife gets more active, so expect great game viewing in the early evening in and around your camp at Kuzuma.
After a hearty breakfast at Camp Kuzuma, you are transferred to the Pandamatenga border post between Botswana and Zimbabwe. We then continue towards Northern Hwange and Nantwich Lodge, where we spend two nights enjoying game drives and bush walks in Zimbabwe’s largest national park.
Enjoy your last breakfast at the lodge before we make our way back to Victoria Falls Airport.
