Enormous Big 5 game reserve in Zimbabwe
Hwange National Park is the biggest and some say best wildlife reserve in Zimbabwe, and one of Africa's premier conservation areas. The park is brimming with wildlife and remains in good condition, with an airport and well-maintained road network. It is home to the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo - as well as over 400 species of birds, abundant plains game and an array of mammals.
It is an exceptionally diverse park with landscapes ranging from savannah to Kalahari sands, acacia scrub to saltpans where animals congregate heavily during the dry season. Hwange is also home to a number of luxury lodges which promise high standards of luxury and comfort as well as an enthralling wildlife experience. We have visited the lodges below so contact us to plan your tailor-made trip!
Built in 1992 by the Preston family, who remain deeply involved to this day, The Hide Safari Camp has earned its reputation as a consummate safari destination, for both the exceptional wildlife experience and the hospitality it offers.
Raised on wooden decks and with 10 tented suites, Makalolo Plains has spectacular views of the Hwange Park and overlooks the Somavundla Pan which attracts herds of elephant and plains game, with numerous predators following suit!
Known as the 'Place of Elephants', Ivory Safari Lodge occupies a 6000 acre conservancy adjacent to Hwange National Park. A maximum of 12 guests can stay in 6 luxury suites nestled among giant teak trees with views over a floodlit waterhole.
An exclusive tented camp nestled in a private concession, Little Makalolo offers some of the best game viewing within Hwange National Park. There are six canvas tents, a swimming pool and cosy lounge and dining area to boot.
