Welcome to Hwange National Park

The best time for wildlife viewing is July to October, when animals congregate around the 60 water holes or ‘pans’ (most of which are artificially filled) and the forest is stripped of its greenery.

Maps and information about the park are available at the rangers offices at Main Camp, Sinamatella Camp and Robins Camp.
