Discover the hidden gem of Hwange National Park

  Herd of elephants in Hwange national park, Zimbabwe

For anyone looking to experience the truly untouched African wilderness, Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe is a must. Located on Zimbabwe’s Western border with Botswana, between Zimbabwe’s second city, Bulawayo, and the majestic Victoria Falls, Hwange offers some of Africa’s best wildlife viewing. The park is unspoiled and wild, and is really worth considering for those who want an authentic safari experience.

Hwange National park is home to a multitude of wildlife, with over 100 mammal species and 400 bird species. This includes Africa’s largest elephant population, with over 35,000 elephants in the park. The park is also home to one of Africa’s largest remaining wild dog populations, as well as lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, impala, kudu, sable, eland, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, baboon and warthog.

African Wild Dogs

There is some fantastic accommodation available within the Hwange National Park, offering incredible wildlife viewing. Camp Hwange, for example, provides exceptional wildlife viewing, and even night time game drives, from a luxurious private camp.

As well as Hwange’s incredible wildlife, its location makes it an incredible accessible safari destination. Hwange National Park is only a short distance from the iconic Victoria Falls, and a visit to the Falls can easily be incorporated with a trip to Hwange. In fact, many of Somak’s Zimbabwe itineraries include visits to both, including the ‘Victoria Falls and Hwange getaway’. A short five-night trip, involving a stay at the traditional A’Zambezi River Lodge at Victoria Falls, and a safari holiday staying in the private tree houses of the Ivory Lodge.
