• This tour takes you to The Great Zimbabwe Ruins and Gonarezhou National Parks
Day 1: Arrival in Harare.
Day 2 and 3: After breakfast you depart Harare for Masvingo, the home of the famous Great Zimbabwe Ruins. The journey takes about 5 to 7 hours hours depending on the stops made on the way. Zimbabwe – meaning big house made of stone – derived its name from the massive stonewalls found at Great Zimbabwe. Historians and archaeologists are still excited about this place. The ruins are surrounded by unanswered questions: Who built them? Where are the graves of the deceased leaders? Why was it abandoned? We advise you to take at least 2 to 3 hours for your visit, guided by one of the excellent local guides.
Day 4 and 5: Gonarezhou: Pristine Wilderness The drive to Gonarezhou takes about 5 hours. Any journey into the heart of Gonarezhou begins with the realization that this is wild country. It is one of Africa’s last remaining pristine wildernesses and we are all privileged to be a visitor here. The animals are in their most natural state at Gonarezhou. This is a country of red sandstone, thorny scrub and baobabs. Buffalo gather at watering holes, big cats prowl silently in pursuit of painted impala, hippo wallow midstream attended by squadrons of fluttering birds. The presence of elephants is everywhere. Weather exhilarating game drives through the park, excursions to the epic Chilojo Cliffs, or a day spent bird watching, there is a wide range of activities to suit every guest. When the day is done and you’ve enjoyed sun downers on the Save River, sleep will come easy. You know when you wake, it will be there waiting for you, all over again. All meals and activities are included,
Day 6. Back to Harare the journey to Harare via Masvingo is a long one, a distance of 550 km, about 8 hours in total.
You can have a small city tour of Harare depending on the time of departure of your flight.
