Hwange National Park holidays

Located in the north-west of the country and only a two-hour drive from Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park is the largest wildlife reserve in Zimbabwe. At an area of 14,500 sq km, approximately the size of Wales, the park is home to vast tracts of Kalahari sandveld where teak and mopane woodlands are interspersed with saltpans and grassy plains. Wildlife here is prolific and population densities rank among the highest in Africa. There are more than 100 mammal species, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, white rhinos, wild dogs, brown hyenas, buffaloes and elephants, the latter of which boasts a population of more than 30,000. Birding is also excellent with the wet season (December through March) providing excellent opportunities to see some of the 400 recorded species.
