Zimbabwe has a reputation for having very good guides: we certainly found that to be the case at Hwange.

It’s Zimbabwe’s largest park and is famous for its presidential elephant herd and large number of buffalos, as well as being home to other wildlife like lions, giraffes, cheetahs and wild dogs. It’s easy to reach from Victoria Falls – just a short flight or drive and you’re there.

It’s also home to some fantastic lodges. But for some reason, it often gets overlooked. We think this is a good thing, because it means visitor numbers tend to be low: when you stay in a Hwange camp, you often feel like you have the entire place to yourself.

Fly via Johannesburg to Victoria Falls then on by light aircraft to the nearest local airstrip; alternatively, you can travel by road from Victoria Falls to Hwange.


July to October is the best time for game viewing - the daytime temperatures are warm, it's dry and game, including elephants and buffalo in large numbers, are drawn to the waterholes. Be warned, though, it can be very cold at night. From November to April, the rains return, the grasses grow again and the wildlife disperses throughout the park.
