Walk through Hwange

Spend 4 days/3nights with Zimbabwe's most experienced walking guide in Hwange National Park.

Zimbabwe is an outstanding destination for keen walkers, and most especially when combining big game in remote wilderness areas.

A journey bursting with conservation experiences specifically relating to the rare and threatened black rhino, but also including many other great African mammals.

A short two hour drive from Victoria Falls will take you to Hwange National Park. You'll progress through the park, game viewing en route to your camp. There is a chance to see black rhino truly living in the real bush and learn more about the oldest national park in Zimbabwe. You'll also enjoy amazing game drives where you'll see some of Hwange's many big game species including lion and elephant.

But most importantly you'll be spending your time with a truly unique individual and one of Zimbabwe's most experienced walking guides. With many years under his belt, Leon has lived in the Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park for so long, even the animals recognise him!

The camp is set in a great location, with good views over a waterhole where there are constantly elephants, giraffe and numerous other animals coming down to drink.

Places you'll visit

Species you could spot

A rare black rhino roams the Laikipia near Borana

Black rhinos

Once roaming widely across sub-Saharan Africa rhinos are now rapidly nearing extinction. The black rhino survives in remote pockets of arid wilderness and some protected reserves. It differs from the white rhino with its smaller size and a prehensile upper lip. This solitary browser feeds at night and wallows or hides under shade during the day. They're particularly bad tempered.

African wild dog stretching near Ruchomechi on the Mana Pools shoreline

Wild dogs

Also known as Cape hunting dogs, packs of painted dogs roam sparse woodlands and plains in isolated and remote areas. Sightings are never guaranteed on safari but the best chance of finding these endangered canines is in Botswana's Moremi and Linyanti in June; the Selous in July/August; also in the green season in the Luangwa Valley; the Mana Pools World Heritage Site and Hwange.

Elephants

Largest land animals on earth, the African elephant used to range widely through sub-Saharan Africa. Despite being threatened by habitat loss and ivory poaching African elephants have healthy populations in east and southern Africa. Best places to see elephants include Mana Pools and Hwange in Zimbabwe, Botswana's Chobe and Linyanti, the Luangwa Valley, Selous, Katavi and Amboseli.
