VARDEN SAFARIS

Be one of the very first to ride and explore one of Africa's finest national parks, Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park. On horseback, you have the park at your fingertips and expert guides to ensure a wonderful safari experience. This wilderness area is little known to most locals and visitors with 600 sq km of prisine and breathtaking landscapes.

HWANGE NATIONAL PARK
Balanced on the escarpment of the famous Zambezi Valley lies a rugged blending of grey granite and red serpentine soils of Zimbabwe's Great Dyke Complex. Deep in the valley, rivers bisect towering rock faces and grass covered mountains. On a sturdy steed you can ride for days exploring Miombo and Mushanje woodlands with orchids, water berry, palms and wild fruit supporting generous herds of elephant, buffalo, eland, sable, kudu, zebra, and many other species.

KOPJE TOPS LODGE
A magnificent stone and thatch structure perched high amongst the trees, the isolated lodge is an excellent base to explore the park on horseback and on foot. No noisy engines or generators to disturb the tranquility. The rustic lodge offers comfort and good food set within a fairy tale valley. The lodge accommodates up to twelve guests in six chalets with full ensuite facilities.

SIYA LIMA HOMESTEAD
Without a doubt this is one of the most extraordinary farmhouses ever built in Zimbabwe. Siya Lima is now being run as a tourism concern in conjunction with the local community. The main house consists of four lovely bedrooms all with full ensuite facilities. In addition, there is a large cottage and a self-contained flat above the stable block.

BAT CAVES CAMP
A more rustic yet very comfortable bush camp situated a day's ride from Kopje Tops Lodge. After a long day in the saddle, you will appreciate the hot bucket showers, comfy beds and freshly prepared meals. All supplies are carried via packhorse as there are no roads, enhancing the wildly remote atmosphere. In the evening, guests may watch the flight of the giant Egyptian Fruit Bats whose numbers have estimated to be up to 20,000 and are the largest known colony south of the equator.
