Hwange National Park

Bordering Botswana, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest game park with an area of 14,600km² and is only a two hour drive or a 40 minute flight from Victoria Falls. Its sheer size means that its scenery, vegetation and game vary massively, ranging from the semi desert scrub on the edge of the Kalahari in the south, to forests, granite hills and valleys of mopane woodlands in the north.

The national park is home to over 400 bird species and 100 mammal species, including lion, leopard, cheetah and rhino, and is known for its large population of elephant. The highest numbers of animals are spotted in the dry season when the wildlife congregates around the shrunken water holes.

Keen birders, however, might enjoy the summer months from November to April when migratory birds are present.
