Spanning an area of roughly 14 650km² (roughly the size of Belgium), the Hwange National Park is the largest and oldest game reserve in Zimbabwe. Prior to being established as a National Park in 1929, it served as royal hunting grounds for the Ndebele kings in the early 19th century. It is named after a local Nhanzwa tribe chief, Hwange Rosumbani, and is one of Africa’s last vast unfenced wildernesses, a truly iconic destination

You will do the full day drive with lunch at any one of the many viewing platforms. Mineral water and refreshments are all provided. Hwange is endowed with many solar powered waterholes and there are no permanent rivers in the park, so most animals can be seen on their way to and from the water holes. The elephants of Hwange are world famous and the Park's elephant population is one of the largest in the world. The park is home to over 65 000 elephants who in the dry season dominate all the water points in the afternoons. Other animals that can be seen in the park are lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, impala, kudu, sable, eland, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, baboon, warthog and a lot more. Hwange National Park provides a safari experience to rival the great parks of East Africa - the Serengeti and Masai Mara - but without the crowds. We will leave for the Park at 16H30 and expect to be back at your hotel at around 19H30.
