This fantastic three centre safari holiday combines two of the best game viewing areas in Southern Africa; Chobe National Park in Botswana and Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe with a stay at the iconic Victoria Falls.
We have carefully selected the lodges, including several interesting 'behind the scenes' conservation experiences for you.
*The Vulture Culture programme at Victoria Falls - the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge has a new wooden deck and hide where guests can learn about the importance of the programme. Vulture restaurants, as they are called, are an important part of conserving dwindling vulture populations in the area. 8 of Africa’s 11 vulture species have declined at an average of 62% across all regions over the past 30 years. Power lines, loss of food supply, direct poisoning, veterinary drugs from treating animals, traditional medicine and direct persecution are listed as some of the reasons for the vultures decline. The feeding program also allows the threatened vulture numbers to be monitored by scientists with data collection and population counts.
*Hwange Pump Run - as well as enjoying a range of safari activities including 4x4 day and night drives, guests can also join the daily 'Pump Run'. Hwange is one of Africa's only parks without a natural water source at its heart. The park’s population of water-dependant species congregate in enormous numbers around the man-made waterholes throughout the dry season (May to November). Lodges maintain waterholes, supplying diesel, paying pump attendants and monitoring the water levels. You can join one of the pump runs for a hands-on insight into Hwange’s water supply situation.
During this safari you have the option to see conservation projects first hand including the Vulture Culture experience as detailed above, and the Pump Run. In addition on behalf of every client travelling we make a donation to the Real Africa Trust. In Zimbabwe, the Trust has funded a puppy, named Vaala who has been trained and deployed by Animals saving Animals to the Save Valley where one of just eight viable Black Rhino breeding populations remain. Vaala has joined the highly effective anti-poaching unit. Through our Explorers against Extinction campaign we also hope to fund a new dog squad for Rhino Conservation Botswana.Plan My Journey Speak To Us
