Hwange National Park

Zimbabwe - Western Zimbabwe

Situated on the border with Botswana, Hwange National Park is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe. Its 1.4 million hectares of sandy soils support widespread stands of broad-leafed woodland that, despite the low rainfall, are an abundance of green during the summer months.

Saltpans, acacia scrub and grasslands complete this “savannah mosaic”. The Park has one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, particularly its herds of elephants and buffalo. The scarcity of water in Hwange means that, as spectacular and productive as the system is during the summer months, it is the concentration of game during the dry winter months for which the Park has become so renowned. Proclaimed over 70 years ago, the Park is a crucial component of southern African wildlife conservation; it is part of a massive patchwork of wildlife land that stretches across five countries, thus providing a core habitat and a refuge for many species.
