Hwange is an excellent big game area, well-known for its very healthy elephant population
Lion are prolific here too...
...while a few resident species, like Roan, are not common throughout southern Africa
In addition to the fauna on display, Hwange is also made up of some very dynamic scenery
In the south-west of the park, the landscapes owe much to the  Kalahari …
...and this is where a lot of the larger grazing mammals are found
Moving north-east the landscape becomes hilly and more rugged and rocky...
...and the vegetation a little thicker
With no rivers to speak of a number of man-made dams supply most of Hwange's water...
...and it's at these dams where often mobile safaris will stop for two or three nights
There are no water based activities in Hwange. 4WD game drives...
...and walking are the major focus in this national park.
