Safaris to Hwange National Park
About Hwange National Park
Spanning out over nearly 15,000 square kilometres, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe's biggest national park and a hub of life and activity. Given the immense size of the area, the topography is incredibly varied throughout the park, changing according to the season. From dry savannah bush to granite hills to lush, green valleys and hills, the scenery of Hwange National Park is unrivalled in the country. Of course, the entire landscape changes when the rains stop. Cracked, dry salt pans pepper the ground and the vegetation shrivels and wilts, making the park look like a completely different place.Read More
