Hwange National Park Review

Hwange National Park is just an easy two hours drive from Victoria Falls . And for most Zimbabweans, like the team here at Off 2 Africa, this park is a national treasure.

If you’re planning a safari in Zimbabwe, this Hwange National Park review should help you plan.

Wide Open Spaces and Raw African Bush

Hwange National Park celebrated her 80th birthday back in 2008, and is regarded as one of the great parks of Africa. Travelers particularly love the park’s elephant population, which today is around 25,000!

If you’re after wide open spaces, raw bush savannah and limited tourist traffic, Hwange National Park is the spot for you. Hwange is a massive 14,000 square kilometres, comparable to the size of Wales in the UK and Zimbabwe’s largest national park.

In Hwange National Park you’ll find over 100 mammal species including The Big Five, as well as African Wild Dog, Cheetah, the rare Brown Hyena as well as Spotted variety. Birders love the over 400 bird species, which is nearly half of all types found in Southern Africa.

In Hwange travelers have a chance of seeing pretty much any of Southern Africa’s exciting wildlife in a single park.
