About Hwange National Park

All the above Zimbabwe safari pictures were taken in that country's Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe's largest game reserve that covers an area of roughly 14,650 sq km. Hwange (or Wankie as it was previously known) was declared a game reserve in 1928, largely because the area was regarded as useless for farming or other purposes.

Comprising expanses of woodland and Kalahari sands that lack surface water for most of thae year, it is only the provision of artificial water supplies that has allowed Hwange's inhabitants to form stable breeding populations.

Today the park has huge herds of elephants, while large herds of buffalo, eland, wildebeest, zebra and impala can be seen congregating at the waterholes. Visitors can also expect to see the rare sable and roan antelope and, with luck, big cats like lion, leopard and cheetah, providing guests with excellent opportunities to take safari pictures in Zimbabwe.

There are three large rest camps in Hwange - Robins, Sinamatella and the largest, Main Camp - that offer a mix of accommodation options at affordable prices.
