Hwange

Explore the diverse habitats of this huge national park

Hwange is the largest and most famous of Zimbabwe’s national parks. Close to the edge of the Kalahari Desert and within easy distance of Victoria Falls, the park is teeming with animals, including over 100 mammals - lion, leopard and Africa’s single largest concentration of elephant among them. The camps in Hwange are relatively spread out, and visitor numbers are low, creating an experience that is very personal and exclusive.

The Kalahari is known for its huge expanses of bush with a scattering of open plains, palm trees, and large herds. Four of the Big Five live here, all of which are easy to spot. Other notable species in the park include an occasional cheetah and African wild dog, along with African wild cat, serval, honey badger, civet, and hyena.
 
Birders will have plenty of species to tick off their life list in Hwange. The southern ground hornbill is regularly seen hunting in groups of up to six, the racket-tailed roller has distinctive tail feathers, and the most impressive of the many raptors, the martial eagle, can be found sweeping across the skies above.

Accommodation:
Davison's Camp

You won’t beat the location of Davison’s Camp within the Hwange National Park. Game viewing within the Linkwasha Concession is superb, and as a thriving waterhole is right by the camp you can expect quality wildlife viewing throughout the day as well as into the evening.

Accommodation:
Little Makalolo

Summer sees the herds migrate onto Hwange’s plains, closely followed by their predators. Sitting at Little Makalolo’s waterhole you’re guaranteed a front row view of the animals’ impressive journey. It is an intimate, peaceful, and exhilarating experience, Zimbabwe at its best.
