About
Spanning an area of roughly 14 650km² (roughly the size of Belgium), the Hwange National Park is the largest and oldest game reserve in Zimbabwe. Prior to being established as a National Park in 1929, it served as royal hunting grounds for the Ndebele kings in the early 19th century. It is named after a local Nhanzwa tribe chief, Hwange Rosumbani, and is one of Africa’s last vast unfenced wildernesses, a truly iconic destination

    Hwange National Park
    Stop: 12 hours - Admission excluded
    06H00 - Depart your hotel in Victoria Falls and head for the Hwange National park .This is a 195km drive and takes about two and half hour of safe driving. The roads to the park are all tarred. You will be at the Main Camp (National Parks HQ and the safari starting point) at around 08H30and after a few minutes of check in formalities the safari starts. You will do the full day drive with lunch at any one of the many viewing platforms. Mineral water and refreshments are all provided. Hwange is endowed with many solar powered waterholes and there are no permanent rivers in the park, so most animals can be seen on their way to and from the water holes. The elephants of Hwange are world famous and the Park's elephant population is one of the largest in the world. The park is home to over 65 000 elephants who in the dry season dominate all the water points in the afternoons. Other animals that can be seen in the park are lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, impala, kudu, sable, eland, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, baboon, warthog and a lot more. Hwange National Park provides a safari experience to rival the great parks of East Africa - the Serengeti and Masai Mara - but without the crowds. We will leave for the Park at 16H30 and expect to be back at your hotel at around 19H30.

We had a very bad experience with the Safari Jeeps provided by DK Tours in August this year. The jeep that was give to us was a poorly maintained vehilce and the seating was not comfortable being old. We were in the park for about 30 minutes (about 10 kms.) near a water viewing area and the van would not start. The driver cell phone had no signal and the Radio was not working. My children and I had to help the driver push the jeep and I had to jump start the Jeep. The driver wanted to continue with this vehicle, but we refused and returned back to the gate. The driver said it would take us some time so I was considering cancelling anr returning to Victoria Falls which was 2-1/2Hrs drivethus avoid waisting a full day. At the gate the driver got another Jeep which had only six seats and the middle seat was uncomfortable. The van again was old and in poor shape. Since our previous driver was also the guide he accompanied us into the park and had to sit between my wife and I as it would be impossible for us to communicate if he sat in the Drivers cabin. This made our seating even more uncomfortable. Even in this Jeep the radio was not working and the Driver/ Guide were not very good at knowing where they would be able to spot any of the Big Five. Fortunately we met at th picnic spot a person who was doing wild life documentary for BBC and he told us where they were Lions and Buffalos. We then encouraged our driver to take us there. They were hesitant as it was a bit far and wanted to get us back to the gate by 4.00 pm.
The return journey was dreadful as the driver was driving very recklessly and making it a very bumpy ride. Besides the roads not being very good, he would not stop at the pot holes. Even this vehicle had a starting problem, however we were lucky that the vehicle did not stall.
Our visit to Hwange Park would have been a waste of time if we had not met the BBC person who guided us to where we were able to see some Lions and other animals.

I would strongly discourage using DK Tours for your Safari tour as the Safari Tour operator they selecter put our lives at risk. Proof of us pushing the vehicle can be provided with pictures we took.

On a positive note the Driver who drove us from Victoria Falls to Hwange and back was plesane and a very good driver. He was patient and very attentive driver.

Thank you Kevin for your review, its really regrettable that we did not meet your expectations on this safari. Its also unfortunate that we had a vehicle breakdown in the park and had to rush you to the lions sightings with the replacement vehicle. The driver had to rush to the lions sightings in a bid to strike the balance between showing you the lions and being on time for the parks gate. Our animals in Hwange National park are not chipped like in some private game reserves somewhere - so to see them you either just bump into them or you get information about their whereabouts from other visitors to the park. This is what we did with the BBC people and I do not see anything wrong with that. Kindly also note that the roads in the park are what we call "dirty roads" - not tarred and you may not expect a smooth ride more especially if you are rushing. Thanks again for this review, I am sure it will keep us on our tours and perfect our act
