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 5 - 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!
