Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park is one of Southern Africa’s best-kept secrets. This 7-day Best of Hwange safari whisks guests into the heart of Zimbabwe’s best-known National Park to experience the untamed wilds of Zimbabwe and the remote wilderness and grassy plains of the wildlife-rich area of northern Hwange National Park. Travel by road (Ndlovu Drive) through Hwange National Park on a full day game viewing experience to your second lodge in Hwange through the varied scrublands and diverse wildlife of the eastern region of the park. Your fully inclusive Hwange safari package will be spent traversing this largely untouched area with game walks and safari drives tracking wildlife in Hwange.

The best views in Hwange is from the infinity pool at Nantwich, overlooking a plains where it is known to see 1000+ head of buffalo. Enjoy armchair safari watching a variety of animals come drink throughout the day at Nantwich Dam. Your well-qualified local and passionate guides will teach you about the surrounding Hwange ecosystems and the wild animals and birds that find sanctuary here.

Elephant’s Eye Tented Camp, Hwange will be your base for the last 2 nights on this portion of your safari in Hwange. These spacious and stylish tented chalets of our Hwange eco-lodge are built on decks that afford you a birds-eye view of the busy waterhole and surrounding Hwange bush. Elephant’s Eye Tented Camp is situated on a 2500 hectare private concession, which allows you the unique opportunity to sleep in the bush under the stars.  Ask your agent for more details for this once in a lifetime upgrade.

Your first 3 nights in Hwange National Park will be spent at Nantwich Lodge. This boutique Hwange safari lodge has been reclaimed from a bygone era and an old National parks camp. Great care was taken in the renovation to honour its past but still provide guests with a comfortable and elegant Hwange retreat for your Zimbabwe holiday package. Its position, perched on a hill overlooking a large dam, give guests some of the best game viewing in Hwange.

Your days here will be spent exploring the concession on foot with your guide on a Hwange walking safari or enjoying the early morning and evening game drives. Savour the quiet contentment that comes with sitting next to the roaring bonfire with a cocktail in hand watching the changing colours of the sunset before heading off to a delicious boma dinner.
