Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

In June this year I guided two safaris, that took us through Hwange National Park in North Western Zimbabwe. With the first couple we went to Little Makalolo and then we went to Somalisa with a family 9 we went to Somalisa.

This was my first time back to this park in a number of years and we were rewarded with great sightings. 

Covering over 5,000.00 square miles, Hwange is a massive National Park, 2/3rd of which are undeveloped for tourism. With an estimated 35 thousand elephants, Hwange is one of the last strongholds for these massive creatures but the park is also home to over 100 other larger mammals. Hwange’s meager rains fall between November and April and so as the dry season progresses, these animals congregate around the few remaining waterholes bringing to life a rich abundance of wildlife experiences. Below are a few photographs taken over the space of just a few days.
