One can savour the sunset anywhere in the world, but in Hwange, it may seem as if it were a completely new experience. Here the sunset is accompanied by a symphony of sounds such as trumpeting elephants, as they declare their priceless existence. This is your very own glimpse into the womb of creation. Now you have arrived in Africa… Welcome…
This is the largest National Park in Zimbabwe, occupying 14 650 square kilometres of land that is rich and abundant in diverse wildlife. This is one of the ultimate destinations for tourists visiting Africa, specifically to experience true nature and wildlife.
Moonlight game viewing is available around the full-moon period, subject to weather conditions. This also makes for an unforgettable experience. Night time in Hwange National Park is a memorable experience. Here the stars shine with the same brightness and clarity as they did in ancient times. Here all problems and worries seem to lose their importance. This place has the effect of satisfying a primitive longing to return “home”.
Hwange National Park is situated approximately one hour’s drive south of the Victoria Falls. The National Park was formerly the Royal hunting grounds of the Ndebele Warrior-King: Mzilikazi. It was in 1929 that this special place was set aside as a National Park.
This National Park boasts a tremendous selection of wildlife with more than 100 mammals, including Africa’s Big 5, as well as nearly 400 recorded bird species. The African elephants of Hwange are world famous and the Park’s elephant population is one of the largest in the world. Wildlife programs such as Big Five Challenge on Animal Planet are shot from this location.
Within the Park there are camping areas and other forms of accommodation that can safely host guests as they experience real Africa. There are also braai and picnic areas within the park that are also protected from the animals.
Guests are guaranteed to be enthralled as they explore this wildlife paradise. Guests can engage in a range of activities here: Visitors enjoy exciting game drives where there is always a chance to witness something special, unusual or simply fascinating. This is one place where you don’t want to make the mistake of forgetting your camera or batteries.
Guests also enjoy the option of taking walks in the safe hands of professionals who carry rifles for added protection.
The Park has dams and water-holes which are good places to view game. These can be the perfect places to witness the unscripted events that occur in the wild. Here you can possibly wait together with Africa’s predators for game to inevitably come and quench their thirst. Again, you don’t want to forget your camera at this point…
