Hwange

Hwange National Park is the largest national park in Zimbabwe. it offers spectacular game viewing experiences, particularly in the dry season. It’s easily accessible by tar road and has many amenities to make for a pleasant stay.

The time of year you visit greatly affects the chances of viewing wildlife at Hwange National Park.

December – March : This is the green season and is usually not the best time to view wildlife because of all the vegetation. It is, however, the cheapest time to visit Hwange.

April – June & November : At this time there is no rain and there is less vegetation therefore making animal sighting better.

July-October : This is the dry season and is the best time to visit Hwange. It is also the busiest and most expensive time to go, but the animal sightings will be exceptional.

Hwange National Park is easily accessible by tarred road.

Somalisa Camp is located in the heart of Hwange Main Camp. It is known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds. Nestled in a stunning location tucked away on an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain, Somalisa provides guests with breath-taking views of the savannah plains across the famous Kennedy Vlei line. Recently re-built, Somalisa Camp has upgraded its level of accommodation to that of complete comfort and luxury whilst still maintaining its focus on the guiding and hosting of guests to ensure the ultimate guest experience.
