Surrounded by vast plains of Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest national park, Camp Hwange offers an authentic safari experience that will leave you inspired by nature’s untamed beauty. As a small and intimate camp, it promises a true wilderness adventure with personalised service. With miles and miles to explore on game drives and walking safaris, this wildlife-rich park promises rewarding game viewing, with particularly prolific elephant herds. Look forward to vast open spaces where the calls of jackal, songs of cicadas and rumbles of elephant echo through the air.
Nestled alongside an indigenous teak forest, overlooking a permanent waterhole and open plains beyond that, Camp Hwange is primely positioned for an excellent armchair safari. Witness not just large herds of elephant heading to the water after grazing in the wood, but also the natural flow of different species arriving for a drink as the sun ascends. Kudu arrive silently, carefully and in single file, a lone steenbok minces its way hesitantly to the water’s edge, and a flock of doves circle and risk a moment on perilous land for a quick drink, before flapping off again. But no animal rules the waterhole like Africa’s largest mammal, the elephant. Watch the daily saga slowly unfold, sometimes spectacularly, but most times peacefully and almost orderly, from the comfort of your spacious thatched chalet.
Camp Hwange would appeal to anyone hoping to explore untouched wilderness and witness Africa’s magnificent wildlife up close. The camp’s knowledgeable and passionate guides will ensure you encounter a diverse array of wildlife, birds, and flora. A safari in Hwange pairs beautifully with a visit to Victoria Falls, located just a few hours’ drive away or a quick 20-minute light aircraft flight. Combine Africa’s adventure capital with the tranquillity and raw beauty of Hwange National Park for an unforgettable journey through Zimbabwe’s landscapes.
