Is this the best value couple's safari in Africa? Victoria Falls, Hwange, and Matusadona are three of Zimbabwe's major highlights. Offering unbelievably good value for a safari of this duration, this trip stakes its claim as our best value trip.

This trip offers incredible value for money, with an excellent variety of adventure and relaxation. You will start at Victoria Falls, where you can try out a range of activities from bungee jumping to a serene river cruise! After that, you will enjoy a classic big-game safari in Hwange National Park before travelling to Matobo Hills, where you have a chance to track rhino.

We use three fantastic properties. At Victoria Falls, you will stay at the super-chic Batonka Guest Lodge, which is situated just over 2 kilometres from the world’s largest waterfall! Next up is Khulu Ivory Lodge in the Hwange region, which provides luxurious accommodation and classic safari activities. And Camp Amalinda in the Matobo Hills is the setting for the final part of your trip. This comfortable lodge is located within an ancient bushmen’s shelter and is a wonderful base camp for exploring the area.
