After a chance for a last morning game drive and breakfast you will be transferred across the border to Zimbabwe and on to Old Drift Lodge for the next three nights to settle in.
Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River, lies Old Drift Lodge. The lodge boasts luxury accommodation overlooking the pristine Zambezi National Park, a mere seven kilometers from the mighty Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Old Drift Lodge is nestled within a wild paradise frequented by elephant, buffalo, herds of sable, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala. The main lodge area will have 360 degree views, North facing onto the Zambezi & South facing onto a water hole.
Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
Using an open four-wheel drive vehicle, the game drive allows the guests to discover many interpretations of the bush and all its inhabitants, related to them by our suitable trained and qualified guides. This is an uncontrived bush experience, covering a genuinely wild, unfenced wilderness area.
Morning & Afternoon River Safari
With the iconic river at your doorstep, it is hard not to be charmed by the calming ebb of the current. Breath taking, complex ecosystems thrive around the lodge, and as the boat bobs on the water, guests can drink in a 360-degree view of this magnificent environment.
Guided Walking Safari
From a vehicle, you see Africa. On foot, you feel, hear and smell Africa. As the sun warms the back of your neck, the dust from your steps rises to meet you, and the stray leaves crunch underfoot, you become fully immersed in your safari experience.
Guided Tour of the Falls
The Victoria Falls reaches Its Zenith in about May each year. It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature’s Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight. This tour is conducted in the morning and afternoon. Guests will be accompanied through the Rainforest by one of our qualified guides.
Lunch at the Lookout Café
Guests enjoy complimentary transfers and the fully inclusive use of the Lookout Café. Perched 120 metres above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River, the café overhangs the spectacular chasm of the Batoka Gorge, just down from the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, which forms part of its backdrop.
