  • Why stay there

  • Getting there

  • Hwange National Park



    Winter Months – Mid May, June, July, early August, although the days are warm with beautiful blue skies, the evenings can get extremely cold and temperatures below freezing are not uncommon, so definitely bring warm clothing. It’s cold I promise you!

    Summer months – September through to May. Hot to extremely hot days and warm evenings.

    Rainy season – Generally between late November and April although the occasional rain can occur out of these dates.


    Best Game Viewing Months
    August, September, October and early November are by far the best months for game viewing in this park. Water becomes extremely scarce and the animals congregate around the few pumped waterholes. Sitting patiently and quietly at one of these water holes will reward you with very good game viewing.

    During the rainy season from late November through to April, a completely different park emerges to that of the dry season. Parched savannahs turn into lush fields with an abundance of grazing. The animals disperse and game viewing becomes limited. It’s called the green season and has it’s own magic as this is when the park and all the animals rejuvenate themselves, feeding like crazy on the abundance of food. Newly born animals can be seen everywhere and the birdlife is absolutely prolific.

    It is situated in the southwest of Zimbabwe between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls.
