Hwange National Park Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 82 photos

"AND THE SHOW STARTS"

HWANGE NATIONAL PARK about
14,600sq. kilometres. It became the
ROYAL HUNTING grounds to the:
ZULU warrior king, MZILIKAZI. In the
early 19th cent. and was set aside as a NATIONAL PARK in 1929.
Everything is here. But very hard to in RHINO! It has now about 40,000
ELEPHANTS!
Being my first park in AFRICA. I was
like a kid in a candy store! Didn't
really know how to take pics, take pics of what ect. But being in our
LAND-ROVER heading to our BUSH-CAMP. We already had some sights!! A highly visited park. Not
to be missed!

HABITAT ALWAYS CHANGES!

Hwange, many different habitats.
From open flat-land to thick bush!!
But most of the animals that stay out in the open can see if trouble is
on the way!! The elephants, they go where they want!!

"FIRE" NO ICE!

Seeing these AFRICA sunsets for the first time. As you could guess it's:
FANTASTIC!!!!!
Just eat it up!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Different Habitats, Many Kinds of Wildlife, Getting Out On Foot!

    Looks like a wonderful place, though too bad about the elephant... this looks like a very interesting and beautiful park!

    I visited AFrica in the wet season, although it was beautiful and green, I think you are right about better wildlife viewing in the dry season. You really should visit Namibia next, that was my favourite place!

    Thanks for this great page! Hwange changed my life. Before Hwange I went to Africa for the people. After the encounter with herds of hundreds of elephants in Hwange I'm addicted to elephants and wildlife.
