  /    /  Hwange National Park

A Large Uncrowded Park for a True Wildlife Safari

Hwange boasts a tremendous selection of common and rare wildlife with over 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 bird species recorded here. Hwange National Park support a mix of habitats ensuring large numbers of wildlife all year round – elephant, buffalo, sable, roan, giraffe, wildebeest, impala and even gemsbok. Predators like lion, cheetah and wild dog are also often seen. The permanent waterholes dotted all over the Park are a wildlife magnet and makes for incredibly rare sightings, especially in the dry season. With mid-range and luxury safari accommodation options available, combined with uncrowded wilderness areas and unique safari experiences like bush walks, game-viewing hides and star-bed sleepouts you can only expect a high-quality African safari experience in Hwange.

Hwange National Park

The Highest Diversity of Mammals in The World

Hwange National Park offers you access to more than a million hectares of wildlife-rich wilderness, featuring the highest diversity of mammals in the world. Here you can enjoy exceptional sightings of the iconic wildlife of Africa, including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, cheetah, giraffe, as well as rare species like sable, roan, gemsbok and African wild dog, with the greatest number of these canines found in Zimbabwe, especially in Hwange. Huge herds of elephants are a common sight, especially at the waterholes in the drier months.

Excellent, Reliable Game Viewing Year Round

Hwange is a true year-round Africa safari destination, as it offers excellent, reliable game-viewing at any time. The dry winter months (May – September) offers the best temperatures, visibility, and game-viewing opportunities, especially at the waterholes and hides, or even from your lodge room. From October it gets really hot during the summer months before the rainy season (November – April) starts, however, seeing the Park transforming after the rains is quite a memorable experience, although wildlife is more scattered and more difficult to see especially at waterholes.

Very Accessible & Easily Combined with Other Safari Attractions

Hwange National Park is easily accessed by either road or air from Victoria Falls. A road transfer brings you to the park in less than two hours, with a charter flight the quickest option. Flights from Harare can also be arranged. At the airstrip you will be warmly welcomed and enjoy a game-drive transfer to your accommodation of choice. Besides Victoria Falls, Hwange is ideally situated for easy access to Mana Pools National Park in northern Zimbabwe as well as Chobe National Park and Okavango Delta in Botswana too.
