This 4-night safari will showcase the best of this iconic region while guests indulge in warm hospitality at Machaba’s Verney’s Camp.

Hwange National Park is the largest Park in Zimbabwe occupying roughly 14 650kms, and is located in the north-west corner of the country about an hour south of the Mighty Victoria Falls.

Over 100 species of mammals and more than 400 birds (with a supporting cast of innumerable insects, spiders amphibians and reptiles) can be seen here – including the world famous Presidential elephants.

The elephants of Hwange are world famous and the Park’s elephant population is one of the largest in the world.

The park is a curious mixture of semi-desert, forest and open savannah, each area undergoing fantastic changes as the seasons march on. The game viewing is superb and the teeming herds of sable, elephant, giraffe, impala, zebra and wildebeest give a hint of the richness of southern Africa’s wildlife in bygone days.
