Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park

overview
Zimbabwe
About an hour's drive from Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe's most famous game reserve and with good reason. The Kalahari biome reaches from central Botswana into the south and west regions characterised by level plains and sparse scrub land with great wildlife.

Hwange has many waterholes to ensure varied and reliable game viewing; it is home to great herds of elephant and buffalo; the largest population of the extremely rare African dog thrives here; and the birdlife is prolific.

As you travel north and east into Hwange, the land breaks up into small hills and valleys turning the bush to denser grasslands, and mopane and teak woodland habitats.

At 14,600sq km, Hwange is a large, pristine and scenic game reserve - mid-way in size between Chobe National Park and Kruger National Park and vying with the greats for "Best Game Reserve in Africa" status.

With its great size and varying topography, Hwange has a diversity of habitats and is known for its high wildlife and bird populations. With 420 bird species and 105 mammals recorded (including 19 large herbivores and 8 large carnivores) this is one of the most diverse game reserves in Africa.

Wildlife highlights in Hwange National Park include: elephant, wild dog, lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, spotted hyena, brown hyena, jackal, zebra, giraffe, waterbuck, gemsbok, eland, roan, sable, kudu and many smaller antelope and nocturnal mammals.
