Hwange is the largest & most well-known National Park in Zimbabwe, covering more than 14,600 kmsq and offers an incredible wildlife experience as well as a large variety of birdlife.  It is most well known for large concentrations of Elephant, especially  during the dry season when huge numbers congregate around the waterholes.  Lions, Cheetah, Buffalo are also common to view and visitors may also catch sight of the elusive leopard or rhino during their visit.

Hwange became a national Park in 1929 and offers visitors the opportunity for wildlife rich game drives and guided walking safaris during the daylight hours. There are also several private concessions that have been set up by a few of the camps and lodges providing the opportunity for night drives, and other activities such as mountain biking as well as a little more exclusivity when it comes to wildlife viewing.

The dry season, May to September and nights and mornings can be as cold as 5°C/41°F to freezing, but daytime temperatures are still pleasant with a great deal of sunshine. In the late dry season, the landscape becomes dusty and dry and this is when the wildlife viewing is at it’s best, with animals seeking out water at the waterholes.

The rainy season is typically from November to March and the landscape is lush and green with lots of surface water.  The animals can be more of a challenge to spot but the birdlife is abundant, including the migratory birds that fly down from Europe.
