Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest, is tucked away in the northwest corner of the country. Bordering Botswana, Hwange occupies 14,600km2 of prime safari ground. Hugely biodiverse and and full of array of ever-changing scenery, the park is famous for the large herds of elephant and game that roam freely through its wide open spaces.
One of the joys of a safari in Hwange National Park is that its diverse wildlife and scenery can be enjoyed by game drives or on foot. This helps to bring a different perspective to your safari. Our expert guides know exactly where to look in this vast park for wildlife, and also when to look for it. We recommend taking at least one evening game drive here to experience a different atmosphere and variety of animals.
Hwange National Park is home to over 100 mammal species. Among these are the Big Five, so you’re in with a chance of ticking lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros from your wish list.
The best time to embark on a Hwange safari is in the dry season (August to October), when the wildlife congregates around the water holes and the predators lurk expectantly.
