Zimbabwe has recently been working hard on promoting tourism. There are new lodges opening across Hwange National Park. Victoria Falls is now not the only thing people come to Zimbabwe for.
A great place to start is Victoria Falls; the most breathtaking waterfalls you will ever witness. It’s honestly no surprise that Victoria falls are one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It’s the largest waterfall on earth, combining height and width to make it the largest single flowing sheet of water. There are plenty of lodges close to the falls at a range of price points. The quality of accommodation and service wherever you go is of an exceptional standard and excellent value.
Zimbabwe used to be the place to see Victoria Falls before heading out on safari. But now you can do it all in one country in the outstanding Hwange National Park. Zimbabwe’s largest national park is over 14,000km², it is also one of the most wildlife rich national parks in all of Africa. Hwange is free from large crowds and is the place to be if you want to see large herds of elephant. Hwange is actually home to one of the world’s largest elephant populations. If you’re not a fan of elephants, don’t worry; Hwange boasts hundreds of bird species and multiple antelope species. If its predators you’re after you will find the lion, leopard and even the wild dog are seen regularly.
What really makes Hwange so special is that there are very few visitors and because the park is so large, it’s mostly just your vehicle in the park as far as the eye can see.
There are quite a few accommodation options in Hwange which are perhaps a little pricier than other Reserves in Africa however you get outstanding value for money in terms of wildlife viewing and amenities.
