06:00 Depart on your morning game drive

The Private Concessions of the park offer guests an intimate and exclusive safari without the crowds - while still within the boundaries of the mighty Kruger. Still bound by certain park regulations, the concessions afford guests exclusivity and luxury. Here, game vehicles viewing wildlife can stay a while longer and have the experience remain untainted by crowds of tourists. Visitors have the added bonus of being able to venture into the Kruger Park itself should they wish (although hardly necessary considering the superb game-viewing in the immediate area). Those in the park, however, cannot venture into the private concessions.

Enjoy a hearty breakfast before having time to relax during the heat of the day, either at the pool or in the comfort of your room.

In the late afternoon it once again time for a game drive in the hope of seeing some more exciting animals. Dinner is served at the lodge on your return. Overnight stay.

Enroute to your hotel you will visit the falls on the Zambian side.

Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ - ‘the Smoke that Thunders’ and in more modern terms as ‘the greatest known curtain of falling water’, Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.

A path along the edge of the forest provides the visitor who is prepared to brave the tremendous spray with an unparalleled series of views of the Falls.

One special vantage point is across the Knife edge bridge, where visitors can have the finest view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge.

Other van tage points include the Falls bridge and the Lookout Tree which commands a panoramic view across the Main Falls.

Different times of the year will provide completely different experiences of the Falls region. Peak flood season is around March and April and the full power of the falls can be experienced in all its glory.

As the floods abate the view of the falls gets better and better through the year, but at its lowest, around November and December the Falls become little rivulets running over the edge and in some places along the 1,7km width no water falls at all.
