    The majestic Falls, locally known as Mosi-oa-Tunya ("the smoke that thunders"), is a magnet for visitors from around the world. With possibly one of the most spectacular settings in the country, Gorges Lodge is located downstream from Victoria Falls, perched on the edge of Batoka Gorge above the Zambezi River. Nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking expanse of the gorge that overwhelms you when you step out onto the Bar Deck for the first time.

  3. Day 2 - 3 Gorges Lodge

    Home to an incredible population of raptors, stunning array of butterflies and wild flora some guests do nothing more than relax on the decks and viewing stations absorbing the views and surrounds.

The Elephant Express is a unique rail car which will make you feel like you are travelling back in time. Enjoy cold drinks and snacks on your trip through Hwange National Park, gently rattling along in style with the wildlife and vast wilderness around you. Bomani is a charming camp with that indefinable "something".

This is a vast and incredibly beautiful area dotted with pans, ponds, wetlands, palm savannah and grasslands, supporting an abundance of wildlife.

  5. Day 5 - 6 Bomani Tented Camp

    Activities at Bomani include game drives on the concession and into Hwange National Park. Night drives and walks are conducted within the camp's private concession. An interesting full day activity is the "pump" run which takes place during the dry season (May to November). Guest can participate in the delivery of diesel, spare parts and provisions to the pump attendants who look after the waterholes maintained by Bomani along the southern side of the park. Upliftment of the local community has always played a very important role in the life of Bomani. Guests are encouraged to visit neighbouring villages where they will gain an insight into Ndebele people's lives.
