14-Day Mozambique and Zimbabwe Explorer Overland Tour from Victoria Falls

ItineraryDay 1: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe Stop At: Victoria Falls Rest CampThis morning we enjoy the spectacular Victoria Falls themselves and the mighty Zambezi River. Please be ready to get wet when you visit – the spray from the Falls can be seen from up to 20 miles away – hence the local name Mosi oa Tunya (Smoke That Thunders) and many people find they get thoroughly soaked on their visit! After our visit time is at leisure – try one of the optional activities or visit the local markets or old colonial Victoria Falls Hotel that provides an in-depth historical insight, including information on the discovery of the Falls; or explore the colonial town on foot and visit the local trading markets. From bungee jumping to admiring the view, Victoria Falls is an enduring sight that has captured the imagination of visitors for generations. Duration: 1 dayNo meals included on this day.Accommodation included: Overnight at the Victoria Falls Rest Camp, Victoria Falls, ZimbabweDay 2: Victoria Falls – Hwange National Park Stop At: Hwange National Park, Hwange National Park, Matabeleland North ProvinceToday we head for the world-famous Hwange National Park. This is Zimbabwe’s largest and best-known park and was (in the early 19th century) the royal hunting grounds of the Ndebele warrior-king Mzilikazi. In 1929 it was set aside as a National Park for the benefit of all Zimbabwe’s peoples. The park covers an area of over 14,600 sq kms and is particularly known for its elephant but contains over 100 mammal species including Africa’s “Big 5" (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo), as well as giraffe, cheetah, gemsbok and the brown hyena and abundant bird species. Hwange is also known for its population of the Wild (Painted) Dog. Late in the day we take a locally guided open vehicle game drive and hope to glimpse some of the wildlife in the park before returning to camp for overnight.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Hwange Rest Camp or similar, Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe Day 3: Hwange National Park – BulawayoStop At: Burkes' Backpackers ParadiseDeparting Hwange, we drive south to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second city.

A wide range of handicrafts and artwork are on display here most made locally by skilful craftsmen and womenDuration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Burke's Paradise, Bulawayo, ZimbabweDay 4: Bulawayo – Matobo National Park - BulawayoStop At: Burkes' Backpackers Paradiseguided tour. The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings and the area holds a special cultural and spiritual importance to the indigenous people. The reserve also has a large concentration of the Black and White Rhino and providing it’s safe to do so our guides will lead us on foot to search for these magnificent animals. Approaching these massive beasts is a heart racing, breath-taking and memorable experience. At such times it may be comforting to remember that rhinos are herbivores. The park also has a dense population of leopard and black eagle and we hope to catch sight of either (or both) of these creatures. We also keep a look out for giraffe, zebra, ostrich and a variety of antelope and buck species. Note: There is an option to upgrade to a full day Matobo tour to include various historical sites.

Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Burke's Paradise, Bulawayo, ZimbabweDay 5: Bulawayo – Great Zimbabwe National Monument, MasvingoStop At: Norma Jean's Lakeview ResortLeaving Bulawayo, we cross towards the east of the country to the small town of Masvingo. Nearby is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southern Africa: the Great Zimbabwe National Monument. Dating back to 1200AD this place was once the home to an indigenous population of some 10,000 people. A UNESCO World Heritage Site the area holds special significance to the country which took its name. Legend says this was the city where the Queen of Sheeba resided and archaeological finds uncovered gold, coins and porcelain from as far afield as Persia and China, highlighting the importance of the city as a trading post. We camp nearby for easy access and ample time to explore the ruins at leisure and with a local guide who will give you basic information of the area. If you have the energy there is the opportunity to trek to the top of the Hill Enclosure to enjoy a wondrous sunset.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Norma Jean's Resort, Masvingo, ZimbabweDay 6: Mazvingo - Bandula Area, MozambiqueStop At: Msika LodgeToday, we leave early and stop off in Mutare and if time allows stop at the spectacular Birchenough Bridge (named after Sir Henry Birchenough). The bridge spans the Save River on its 400 km journey through Zimbabwe and Mozambique and is one of many scenic features of eastern Zimbabwe. Once we have stocked up on supplies we make our way to the border point to leave Zimbabwe and enter Mozambique. Once formalities are complete we make our way to the Bandula area near the Chicamba Dam where our campsite is located within a 550-hectare conservancy. Most people notice immediate differences upon entering Mozambique. Travelling is generally slower and road conditions more demanding. Campsites are not as well appointed. Towns and shops may have fewer goods or less variety. While this can sometimes be frustrating many people find after a few days they find this one of the more appealing and attractive aspects of their overland tour. Overlanding is an adventurous type of travel and these are ‘unconventional’ holidays. We are sure you will enjoy Mozambique but do try to warn you not to expect things to be the same as elsewhere in Africa. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Casa Msika lodge, Bandula area, MozambiqueDay 7: Bandula – Vilanculos areaStop At: Camping In VilankuloThis morning, we leave early and make our way to the spectacular Indian Ocean coast.

On arrival, we gather our luggage and snorkels for the following day’s island trip and board our traditional dhow boat to our ‘rustic ‘bush camp. The beach camp is located on a remote stretch of the coast approximately 90 minutes sail from Vilanculos town itself. We arrive in the late afternoon and settle in to our beach camp for the next 2 nights.

Tofo is a small beach town with lovely open beaches, where the pace of life slows allowing you to relax and soak up the atmosphere. There are many activities on offer such as horse riding, snorkelling and scuba. Whale Sharks and Manta Rays inhabit the coastline all year round but are in larger numbers in the summer months (November to March). Humpback whales usually arrive around mid-June and are present until mid-October. The natural vegetation of the coastal plain is dune forest, but this has largely been replaced by coconut palms, planted by the Portuguese and local Bitonga people to supply the thriving copra trade. There are some exciting bars and restaurants in the area - sample the local seafood, the area is famous for it - and the local beer (called ‘2M’) or else simply relax and enjoy a good read.

The local markets are also a highlight with fresh fish, seafood and farm produce on sale. You’ll soon see the mix of Arabic and African cultures that create a vibrant, eclectic style of its own. If the delights of the ocean are your forte, then head out and explore the reefs and colourful marine life found in this warm watery haven.

Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq km. Wildlife is free to roam the whole enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the ‘Big Five’, almost every major African mammal mammal (148 species) is present. There is also prolific birdlife (over 505 species) and over 330 varieties of trees.
