Hwange National Park Safari & Overnight
Hwange National Park  Safari and Overnight

Hwange National Park really is a great game park and it is genuine Africa. Hwange National Park is not crowded with tourists as one might expect in Chobe National Park or even the Kruger. It's a wilderness with some of the best game viewing you can experience anywhere in Africa yet so few tourists in comparison. Spending the overnight at Hwange Safari lodge which is situated near the Park. There are many pans and pumped waterholes which attracts a lot of game around Main Camp.We will do two game drives for the overnight, first one its done the day we arrive from 3.30pm till 6.30pm & early morning drive which is good for sporting cats. After that we do our check out and drive back to Victoria Falls.
