Hwange National Park, which borders Botswana, is Zimbabwe's largest game park with an area of 14,600km², the size of Wales in the United Kingdom. The scenery, wildlife and vegetation vary hugely in the park. There is semi desert scrub in the south and forests, granite hills and mopane woodlands in the north.
This Zimbabwe national park is home to some of southern Africa's last great elephant, buffalo and sable herds. The large number of waterholes attracts a huge variety of game, especially in the winter months when Hwange plays host to numerous animals as they come down to quench their thirst.
Guided game drives and walking safaris are the ideal game viewing activities, introducing safari-goers to the untainted bush and exciting wildlife encounters. After your game viewing experience, return to the camp for a peaceful evening outdoors.
Enjoy an early start to the day as you are served a warm cup of coffee. Prepare for your morning game viewing activity and once you're walking shoes are laced up, you will set out into the wilderness alongside your trained and experienced guide.
Your dose of African culture will be found in the nearby village. A guided tour of the community, its school and it people will leave you with a better understanding of the region. After a day out in exploration of Zimbabwe's great wildlife and culture, you will return to the camp for a scrumptious dinner and an evening around a blazing campfire, lullabied by the sounds of an active bush.
After an early morning activity and breakfast, you will board an air transfer back to Victoria Falls Airport, from where you will board a flight to Johannesburg.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
