Game drives the world over are exciting, full of expectation and often quite bumpy. However there is a new way of seeing wildlife in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Start or end your wildlife adventure on “The Elephant Express”.

Imvelo have launched the railcar that takes you for 70 kms along the border of the Park on one of the straightest piece of track in the world. With seating for just 22 passenger, wide aisles to allow easy access and a chance to view the animals on both sides and comfortable and elegant finishes throughout this is a relaxed and comfortable way to game view as you head to your lodge.

So shortly after you have landed at Victoria Falls or after your stay there, you will transfer to Impofu Siding which nestles in the shade of ancient teak trees. Sip some cool drink and enjoy some snacks in the shade before setting off across the Ngamo Plains. Gently rattle along in style spotting the animals and birds in the wilderness that surrounds you.

This is a wonderful way to start your safari and there is still all of the excitement of exploring the HwangeNational park still to come.

To make this happen and to put together your trip to the World famous Victoria Falls is a call away. We love finding new ways of experiencing the world and tailoring these in to your holiday.
