Hwange Parks is a prime wildlife area set aside for this sole purpose – conservation and preservation of wildlife. Its sheer size (14000 square kilometers – roughly the size of Belgium) ensures the free roaming of the big five, lots of other smaller plains game and smaller predators. The park is subdivided into three camps viz ; the Robins Camp area known for its game infested waterholes, the Sinamathela Camp area famous for the panoramic views and close to 100% chances of encountering the Lions, the Rhino and the elusive Leopard, and the Main Camp area where sightings of the big five are not uncommon. There are around 450 species of wildlife making this park one of the ornithologists’ paradise and more than 100 species of wildlife.

Itinerary:
Day 1: Arrival and Transfer to Hwange.
On arrival at the Victoria Falls Airport you will be met by your guide and transferred to Hwange Safari Lodge in air-conditioned mini buses – a journey of two hours of safe driving. Depending on flight arrival times, we will have enough time to rest after check in for our first activity – the night eyes – night game drive in the Hwange Safari Lodge Estate which is adjacent to the Hwange National Park. There are no fences between the estate and the Hwange National park and wildlife can move freely between the two parks. This is the best time to see the night hunters – lions, leopards and a host of other wildlife. You may not see them on their kills but we guarantee that you will have an unforgettable experience. Overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge. DBB

Day 2: Full day Safari In Hwange National park.
This day we embark on a full day game viewing in the Hwange National Park. The Park is one of the best in southern Africa and our biggest wildlife treasure in Zimbabwe with over 450 bird species and over 100 wildlife species, and this is home to the few Rhinos that we still have in the country. During the dry season it will be a question of moving from one waterhole to another and viewing the animals as the come to or leaving the waterholes. Hwange national park never disappoints regardless of the season visited. We will have a picnic lunch at one of the many viewing platforms in the park and lots of refreshments on the trips and, we will be back at the hotel around 4 pm with loads of stories to tell over the dinner bonfire. Overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge. DBB

Day 3: Transfer to Victoria Falls.
After breakfast we will visit the nearby Wild Dog sanctuary to learn one or two things about these wonderful dogs before driving back to Victoria Falls. We will be Victoria Falls at around 1 pm in time for lunch.
