Day 2: Full day Safaris in the Hwange National Park and transfer to Victoria Falls

This park provides a safari experience to rival the great parks of East Africa – the Serengeti and Masai Mara – but without the crowds. You will have another fun-filled day in the park – now looking for your favorite animal or bird and even ignoring the other now common species. On a good day, you may even return to the lodge earlier as you will have seen all there is to be seen.
Picnic lunch, mineral water, soft drinks, and lots of refreshments will be provided and we will again use any one of the many viewing platform that dot the park for lunches. We will be back at the lodge at around 16H00 and start driving back to Victoria Falls.

We will be in Victoria Falls at around 19H30

Great Experience!

DK Tours and safaris is a professional and reliable tour company. As I was searching through internet looking for tours which included camping in the park, there were not many tour companies that accepted single travellers. Even if I found companies that accepted single travellers, most of them were so slow in replying messages and some of them couldn’t even get my name right in the response. DK was one of the rare companies that responded in a short period of time and had my name right. Communication went smoothly which was an A+ since my booking was at the last minute. After I arrived in Vic Falls, I was picked up at my hotel the next day in the morning at my accommodation. Webster who’s a tour consultant at the company came right on time and smoothly transferred me to the border. I was passed on to my guide, Vincent, for the safari there. After entering Botswana, I first went for a 3-hour boat cruise. This was a great opportunity to see animals like crocodiles, hippos, buffalos, birds, elephants and iguanas. The guide for this boat cruise was Jack and he found animals for me that I could never have been able to find on my own and he would give me enjoyable information about the animals. He also helped me take pictures of myself with animals in the background which is kinda hard when you’re a single traveller. After the tour, I was escorted to a restaurant nearby for lunch. Here I had a chance to try some Botswana cuisine which I enjoyed. Lunch was included in the tour but you have to pay for the drinks(please note that you need Botswana currency here). After lunch Vincent the guide picked me up at the restaurant and started the journey to the Chobe National Park. My tour guide Vincent was just great. He was very knowledgeable about the animals in the park, he knew every path in the park, he stopped the car for me to take pictures or even turn the car for different angles and he was very pleasant to talk with. I saw many animals at the park such as elephants, buffalos, antelopes, baboons, warthogs, beautiful birds, giraffes, hippos and more! (there were so many that I can’t even remember) When the sunset, we moved to the camping area. The tent and dinner table was already set up. The food at the camp was good(which was spaghetti Bolognese, Greek Salad and dessert) and the bed in the tent was comfortable. When the sun went down and it was completely dark, the stars in the sky was breathtaking, and it was a great experience sleeping to the cries of the hippos and crickets. In the morning we went for another game drive. The advantage of staying overnight in the park is being able to wake up early and encounter predators. I was able to see a striped jackal and a lion! This made me so happy since watching a lion was the main purpose of flying hundreds of miles and changing plains twice. After the morning game drive, I had a continental breakfast and proceeded with the game drive for more animals. The tour ended around 14:00. I wanted to buy some postcards and Vincent was kind enough to take me to a souvenir shop on the way back to the border! Chobe Safari Park is a great place to visit if you like animals and nature. If you’re actually considering going, I strongly recommend you to let DK tours and safaris guide your way. They will provide you with an amazing experience and you will make so many good memories that you can take home and share with your families and friends.
