Safari Description

  • Duration: full day
  • Explore Zimbabwe's largest wildlife park, Hwange
  • Enjoy a tasty lunch at a Hwange waterhole
  • Spot elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes and much more
  • Over 400 recorded species of birds in the park
Our Hwange Day Trip begins with an early morning pickup at 5am from your hotel in Victoria Falls for a sunrise departure. Our minibus will then make its way to the Hwange National Park, which is located approximately two hours away to three hours away. Upon arrival at the park's main camp area, your guide will tend to registration formalities, as you sit back and enjoy some tea or coffee and a packed breakfast.

After breakfast, your knowledgeable guide will take you on a thrilling 2-3-hour game drive within the park in an open-back safari vehicle. This is a great opportunity to view giraffe, buffalo, kudu, zebras, eland, impala and, of course, elephants. Hwange National Park is home to Zimbabwe's largest population of elephants. You may also spot big cats such as lions, leopards, cheetahs and caracals.

The winter months of May to August can get extremely cold. We recommend wearing long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and a thick, warm jacket (on morning and afternoon excursions).

During the summer months of September to March, it gets hot. Shorts and light shirts are recommended for morning and afternoon safari trips.

Important Information

Guests must be fit enough to walk and embark on the game drive without assistance.

Participants with specific diet requirements should inform us a day before the tour.

Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed on this tour.

However, every effort will be made to take you to the best sites where animals can usually be encountered.

While we generally try to get guests to Victoria falls by 5:30 pm, this will depend largely on what you see in the park. We will not rush you past sightings to get back early.

The driving conditions will play a part, too. Thus, we suggest that you dedicate your whole day to this safari.

Be sure to book ahead for this tour so that your booking runs smoothly.
