Unsurpassed by any other game reserve, the Hwange National Park covers 15 000 square kilometres, and is one of Zimbabwe’s crown jewels. With a 30,000 elephant population, second only to the Chobe National Park, plus all of the other Big 5; lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, the park is home to all specially protected animals in Zimbabwe, including the rare African Wild Dog and the critically endangered black rhino. Hwange is also the only protected area where brown hyena and gemsbok are found in relatively high numbers in an ever changing landscape of savannah, acacia scrub and Kalahari sands. And Hwange also has high standard luxury lodges to choose from. See some of the favourite lodges in our accommodation section and contact us for a tailor-made trip that suits your needs.

WHEN TO GO?

The park offers excellent game viewing opportunities all year round, but especially at the shallow saltpans during dry season (May to October) when vegetation is sparse and wildlife congragates to drink at the pans. When the rains come the pans fill with water, the scenery changes and the bush blooms. The animals tend to disperse but new bird species flock into the park making rainy season an ideal time for birding enthusiasts.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Elephants are a big draw to Hwange National Park with their huge numbers and formidable presence, but the Park also has a great reputation for predator sightings. Take a game drive or bush walk from your luxury lodge and enjoy night drives in the park where smaller predators can be spotted such as serval, bat-eared foxes and serval.

 

WHERE NEXT?

  A visit to Hwange National Park can be combined with the other great game reserves of Zimbabwe – Mana Pools and of course Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls serves as a gateway to most other African destinations with good connections to all major hub.
