Victoria Falls Marathon: The Kingdom Hotel & Hwange Safari Lodge
6 nights / 7 days
30 June – 06 July 2022
This travel itinerary includes 4 nights in Vic Falls with all the fun around the marathon, and two nights in Hwange National park. There is a large choice of accommodations in Hwange, from the Hwange Lodge to a variety of smaller camps throughout the park. We can also organise guided walking safaris, as well as game drives in the park when staying at one of the exclusive camps. This safari may be extended to include additional nights.
Hwange is home to massive herds of African elephant, including the presidential herd, and boasts an abundance of other wildlife including buffalo, lion, leopard and a host of other species. The prolific birdlife is a must see for the enthusiast with one of the world’s most diverse population of raptors.
When in the Falls, enjoy some of the other activities available – perhaps canoeing on the Zambezi River, a game drive in the park, visit some of the cafes and restaurants around town – there is lots to do.
