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.

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 honor 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, gives 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. Savor the quiet contentment that comes with sitting next to the roaring bonfire with a cocktail in hand watching the changing colors of the sunset before heading off to a delicious boma dinner.

For the next 2 nights, let Camp Hwange be your base camp for exploring the wonders of Hwange National Park. Surrounded by rugged landscapes and diverse wildlife, there’s no shortage of adventure here. Spend your days on thrilling game drives, traversing mopane woodlands and teak forests in search of Africa’s iconic animals.
