Route & Itinerary

5 Days / 4 Nights

Day 1:

Transfer to the Mavuradonha Wilderness (normal arrival time before lunch). You can do a land or light aircraft charter from Harare. Relax in the comfort of Kopje Tops Lodge, and get to know your horse with a sun downer ride before dinner.

Day 2:

Your day starts with a wake-up call accompanied by tea or coffee in your room. Then enjoy a full breakfast at the Lodge, before setting out for your day in the saddle. The route generally follows the direction of the Tingwa River – but as there are elephant to track, and cave paintings to see, plus swimming in waterfalls, there are likely to be a few diversions. Lunch is normally enjoyed at a suitable swimming and sun bathing spot. You reach your overnight accommodation (Bat Caves Camp), in time to witness the evening flight of the bats.

Day 3:

A leisurely breakfast this morning, before setting off for a day tracking game through the tributaries of the lower Tingwa, Dateema and Mashonjeri Rivers. There is nothing like catching up with a herd of elephant you have been tracking for hours. No guarantee of finding them but that is half the fun and experience of learning about the bush. Return to Bat Caves for a second night.

Day 4:

Breakfast at about 7.30 before heading out for the return journey. You can decide on the type of terrain you want to ride and how hard or easy it should be – and you can work out the route with your guide. Terrain is diverse, with some mountainous paths, or tracks next to rivers, and across small open plains. There are at least ten different ways back through eight different Valleys ensuring you never take the same path home. Arrive back into Kopje Tops Lodge in the later afternoon.
