Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park has a world-famous population of elephants, considered to be a global stronghold. It is a very large national park of over 14 000 square kilometres, only an hour south of Victoria Falls in the northwestern corner of Zimbabwe. It used to be a designated hunting ground for a chief, and was proclaimed a national park in 1929. Its name – Hwange – has evolved from Wankie, which was the name of a chief, and it is certainly one of the country’s most well known safari destinations.
