We did a morning safari and an afternoon safari over two days. Perhaps our expectations were too high but found it disappointing. Did lots of driving with very few sightings. Saw more animals at Pilanesberg in two hours than we did here in two safaris....More
We have enjoyed several south African parks and this ranks in the top few. A wonderful bushfeld with open areas and cooling forests. Wild dogs, hyenas, lions, elephants, hippos and giraffes abound. Leopard, like everywhere, is very elusive so a sighting is a big deal....More
We had a brilliant experience at Main camp. Not busy, our ablution was great. Good water pressure in the showers. Electricity. Outside tap. And the carer bought us wood and lit the fire for hot water every day. Zimbabwe locals are so amazing! Tar road...More
We drove to Sinamatella campsite in Hwange National Park through the Mokoma Mines. Had to stop along the way and ask directions, which wasn't a problem, everyone we met along the way was extremely helpful. We arrived at Sinamatella and chose a campsite. It wasn't...More
I was very excited about going to Hwange because I read it had a more "wild" authentic feel to it vs a place like Kruger. We spent 3 days in the park, entering by Main Camp and exiting near Robins Camp. For all the hours...More
It was nice and remote, saw very few other vehicles and there were amazing animal sightings. Hwange Bush Camp was brilliant, staff and guides really efficient, knowledgeable and friendly making you feel really welcome. Tents super, spacious and very comfortable. Food, lots of it, always...More
Nature is rejoicing with the first rains; animals don’t need to drink from the waterholes anymore.
Bad luck for tourists!
We had two drives with a very kind guide, who tried hard to show us wildlife inside the National Park, the viewing was meagre.

We visited in mid January and saw everything we expected, including lions (the very reclusive leopards are hit and miss in any season). Lots of giraffes, zebra, wildebeast, elephant, jackal, hippo, crocodile, and even a cheetah. We had little to no rain during the day.The guides have a little more freedom to roam, compared to parks where they are restricted to roads (and so your viewing is based on what can be seen from the road). If the weather cooperates, you will have some great viewings but it is admittedly tougher than the (more expensive) dry season when you can simply park beside one of the remaining waterholes and let the game come to you, as we did in Kenya/Tanzania. Hwange is home to Camelthorn Lodge, one of the best we have experienced. We have found it a little difficult to locate “reasonably priced” as lodgings seem to be deluxe or minimal, with not a lot in between. When travelling to African game country, we try to get the best price just on the edge of shoulder season.
We stayed at Khulu Bush Camp, (unfortunately ONLY for two nights) and loved it very much! We were a family group of 9 including kids aged 8 to 16
Khulu staff was excellent, the place was wonderful. Really recommended!
