Introduction

Start out in South Africa in the Timbavati Reserve for a chance to see the big 5.  A convenient commercial flight takes you from the Kruger area to Livingstone and on to Victoria Falls where you stay at the lovely Ilala Lodge.  A tour of the falls as well as a sunset cruise are both included.  Take a road and rail transfer on the Elephant Express (a highlight in it's own right) to Hwange for some all around excellent game viewing.
