Hwange is Zimbabwe's largest national park covering an area of over 14,500 sq. kms located on the west, bordering with Botswana. The park is the country's most premier game viewing area being easily accessible and also most visited although its not too overcrowded.

The park holds the largest variety of animals and over 400 species of birds including elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, hyena, lion, leopard, cheetah, a variety of antelope such as Sable, Kudu and Impala.

During the rainy season, mainly December to March the game, is much harder to spot as they are spread across this vast park.
