Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest reserve, and home to a profusion of wildlife including large herds of elephant, buffalo, sable and roan antelope, and plenty of predators too. Hwange’s mix of woodland and grassland makes for productive game viewing all year round, but the best time to visit the park is the dry winter months (June to October) when wildlife gathers in enormous numbers around the waterholes.
