It’s near impossible to put into words the feelings that are experienced in such a treasured National Park like Hwange. Just a 2 hour drive from Victoria Falls and you’re in this wild yet totally magical arena. For us at Off 2 Africa, some of our favourite past times have been spent here and these are some (but definitely not all) of the reasons:
Sometimes, a simple tent shared with your loved one, some easy-to-cook meals, and a 4x4 car to cruise around the park for some game viewing can be the perfect getaway. On the other hand, luxury is certainly not hard to come by in Hwange. Some of our favourite camps here have outstanding reputations for being the best in Africa, and for good reason! There aren’t many places where you’re able to relax on your private deck by the pool, and at the same time, watch a fleet of animals approaching a watering hole to drink… with a cold drink in hand of course. Pure bliss.
Famous for the tens of thousands of elephants that reside in the park, but also for the many other exciting species roaming around. Four of the big five are found here and are spotted regularly by our visitors. It’s a surreal experience to be putting a real-life scene to “survival of the fittest”. With the help and knowledge of the incredible guides in Hwange, you’re bound to be blown away by what wildlife you see and learn about during your stay.
