Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park

Covering an expanse of 5,657 sq miles, Hwange National Park (pronounced ‘Wang-ee’) is one of Africa's largest national parks, and the largest park in Zimbabwe.

Hwange and its surrounding private concessions offer wonderful opportunities to see the Big 5 as well as the less common creatures such as African Wild Cat, White-Tailed Mongoose and Bat-eared Fox. Plains game such as impala, kudu, eland, bushbuck and waterbuck are commonly sighted in great number. Hwange is also famous for its amazing sightings of carnivore – these include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena. Birds of prey are commonly seen as well as well as over 300 other species. However, this park is most famous for its great herds of elephant and buffalo, often sighted in numbers well over 200 at a time. Sightings are good all year round but May – November is when the bush is sparse and dry and game is easier to spot.
