  • It's never a bad time in the bush! But Hwange is special - love it every time! Even though the road between main camp and Ngweshla is well traveled, it's gorgeous and there's always something new...  more »
  • We did a safari in February 2020 (I'm late with my review) through this beautiful national park. It is the largest national park in Zimbabwe and lies at the edge of the Kalahari desert at the border.....  more »
  • Beautiful park, located in our backyard in Zimbabwe. Great to escape COVID on a local special. Game-viewing was exceptional. Sunsets from the waterholes were very memorable...  more »
  • The largest park in Zimbabwe, with an amazing variety of wildlife and facilities. It's a great holiday destination
  • Enjoyed the beautiful wilderness with all the big five of the jungle. And a nice hospitality
  • It was a very wonderful trip to Hwang National Park. There were plenty of elephants near the river and also lots of hippos
  • Nice place. I love Robins camp lots of game
  • Fantastic reserve, not busy. Does lack investment and development (roads deteriorating, camp bathrooms old), but a lot of effort goes into caring for the park. And it adds to the wilderness ambiance.
