Your journey to Zimbabwe will start with a flight from Johannesburg to the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. The area is beautiful and teeming with birds and wildlife, including rare and endangered species – such as the Roan and sable antelope, and the black rhino. Famous for its cathedral Mopane forests and majestic ‘upside-down’ Baobab trees, Malilangwe is an area where you will also find over 100 rock sites that date back more than 2,000 years.
Next stop is Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge in southeastern Zimbabwe, set high atop the cliffs, looking down on the Save River. Here, on the edge of the Gona-re-Zhou, Zimbabwe’s second largest National Park, guests can truly feel part of the untamed Africa. Also in this area are the majestic Chilojo Cliffs, which form an impressive backdrop to the meandering Runde River.
