Bordering Botswana, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest game park with an area of almost 15,000 square kilometres. Its sheer size means that its scenery, vegetation and game vary hugely, 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.
Hwange’s Elephant population is one of the largest in the world. The population of African wild dogs found in Hwange is thought to be of one of the larger surviving groups in Africa today.
The park is another great walking destination combined with excellent guides. The highest numbers of animals are spotted in the dry season (August to October) when the wildlife congregates around the shrunken water holes.
