Hwange National Park
Days 1 - 4
Situated in western Zimbabwe, the Hwange National Park is the country's biggest reserve, home to a profusion of wildlife, including giraffe, lion, cheetah, leopard, zebra, sable and approximately 40 000 elephants. It provides a sanctuary for all the country’s endangered species, including a population of wild dogs thought to be among the most sizeable surviving groups on the continent. Birding is excellent with over 400 species.
The park’s magnificent terrain ranges from desert dunes, savannah lands and mopane woodlands to rocky outcrops and sparse forests. Visitors can look forward to game drives, guided walks or horse riding safaris. Other highlights include the Bumbusi National Monument and the Nyamandhlovu Pan.
With only an hour away from Victoria Falls it makes perfect sense for Hwange to be Safari destination for when visiting the Victoria Falls.
