Hwange National Park Day Trip

 


Hwange National Park

The Hwange National Park is the biggest and oldest National Park in Zimbabwe, well known for its large amount of mammals and birds. It is located South of Victoria Fallsa nd approximately a 2 hour drive.

Pick up from the Hotel at 0630hrs, with packed breakfast from your Hotel. Your journey will take you through rural villages with traditional huts to view, rural hospitals, schools, churches and the highlight of the drive will be The Hwange Colliery which exports large amounts of coal across the world.

On arrival at one of the Lodges, we get accosted to the game drive by an Experienced Guide into a Game Drive Vehicle. There are several water holes that are in the park and we always travel close to them to catch the Animals during their feeding time. There are beautiful hides that have been strategically built and they afford one that magnificent view of the Animals and nature’s magnificent terrain. We are taken back to the Lodge by mid day for a heavy brunch.

As the sun’s heat cools down most animals heard for the water holes and in pursuit of game we go on our second Game Drive. It has been noted that the best of Game Viewing is when the sunsets, that is when the wild tends to flock towards watering holes and there is no other way we can suggest to see Zimbabwe’s Finest game. We are expected to arrive at the hotel at 1800hrs.

Please Note that we can also arrange Multiple Day trip at your request.
