Lovely park that had almost no tourists. If you go during the dry season then the pans (watering holes) will have dried up in many instances so it's easier to spot animals by going to the fewer remaining ones.

We spent 8 days in various parts of Hwange at 2 safari camps and what an amazing experience.

The wildlife and lack of crowds were mind blowing. From massive herds of elephants, cheetah, lions, sable, kudu and so many incredible bird species we were blown away.

...and the people of Zimbabwe - the friendliest, most helpful people in the world I have ever encountered (and I've traveled all over)

Looking forward to returning soon!

Amazing Animals. Beautiful Landscape. I did two full day game drives in the National Park. Had better luck on the first day, but still saw plenty on the second. Elephants, zebra, giraffe, lions, painted dogs, and more. I have been on safari in a few places, and this was one of the best experiences that I have ever had. Truly an amazing place.

This is one of the best places to see African Elephants. There are also cheetah, lions, Impala, monkeys, and the usually expect animals.

This was our second time to Hwange - it’s a real jewel in not only Zimbabwe, but all of Africa. If you are looking for a wonderful place to go on safari, look no further.

There are 50,000 elephants at this park, and you can see everything else (except for Rhinos-they are introducing them to the Ngamo Sanctuary in the forest at the end of 2021. Beautiful place with a lot to see!

One has to wonder what the Parks Board do with all the entry fees and road charges. The concession holders do a wonderful job of their areas but general roads are poorly managed

It's never a bad time in the bush! But Hwange is special - love it every time! Even though the road between main camp and Ngweshla is well traveled, it's gorgeous and there's always something new around every corner.

We did a safari in February 2020 (I'm late with my review) through this beautiful national park. It is the largest national park in Zimbabwe and lies at the edge of the Kalahari desert at the border to Botswana.
We saw very many different kinds of animals here. The abundant wildlife is stunning. We didn't see all of the big five, but what we saw was truly worth coming here.
Don't forget your camera and bring binoculars, if possible. Take your time and stop whenever you can to get that special picture!!! The animals come up close if you are very quiet and have a bit of luck. Had a lioness walk right past our jeep and right after that we had a couple that we caught in the middle of their afternoon (4:46 pm) love act. It was in the high grass, so the picture only show a slight hint of what is going on.
If you do not come here, you will truly have missed something!!!

Beautiful park, located in our backyard in Zimbabwe. Great to escape COVID on a local special.

Game-viewing was exceptional. Sunsets from the waterholes were very memorable...
