Our guide to holidays in Hwange

The area gets very low rainfall and has a number of privately maintained manmade waterholes, boreholes and dams meaning that the game has remained healthy and within the park during the winter. Game viewing is consequently spectacular, particularly during the dry season (July to October).

Renowned for large numbers of elephant and buffalo, lion are also commonly seen and the park also has one of the largest populations of wild dog in Africa. There are black and white rhino with over 100 species of mammals and over 400 birds in total recorded. There are varied ecosystems within the park ranging from huge open plains to teak forests with an attendant variety of birds and mammals.

It is a wonderful combination with the majestic Victoria Falls (a short drive away) and its adrenaline inducing activities and perhaps a coastal addition in Mozambique or the Indian Ocean beaches in South Africa. Walking and game drive safaris are possible which also makes it an excellent combination with Mana Pools to the east where you can also spend peaceful days canoeing down the Zambezi River in the north of the country.
