Wildlife all to yourself
Hwange National Park is back on the map after years struggling in the backwash of Zimbabwe's economic collapse. This stunning wilderness area has amongst the highest diversity of mammals for any national park in the world with 108 species and over 400 types of birds including 50 raptors. With an estimated 30,000 elephants you're sure to come across a herd or two! Hwange National Park resembles what much of the interior of Africa was like more than 150 years ago—with plentiful game, unspoiled bush, and excellent private guides. A stunning wilderness haven, Hwange is Zimbabwe's flagship national park. The park has been set aside solely to conserve wildlife in its natural habitat. Almost all of Zimbabwe's specially protected animals are to be found in Hwange. It’s the only protected area where gemsbok and brown hyena can be found in reasonable numbers. The population of wild dog found in Hwange is thought to be the largest surviving in Africa today.
We're thrilled to recommend this nearly forgotten park that is certainly bouncing back and quickly becoming one of our favourites.
