Tom's Safari House Game Viewing and Activities

Hwange is Zimbabwe’s largest national park, accounting for an area of 14,651km2. A haven for over 100 mammal and 400 bird species, the park protects populations of all of Zimbabwe’s endangered species; elephants numbering in excess of 20,000 (up from around 4,000 when the park was proclaimed), and what is thought to be one of the largest populations of African wild dog left in the world. Large prides of lion and buffalo are frequently seen here and you have a good chance of spotting leopard and rhino in addition to cheetah and spotted hyena. The wild and woolly brown hyena also occurs here and is something of a rarity. A significant feature of Hwange is the absence of permanent surface water. Animals rely heavily on a series of waterholes, many of which dry up completely during drought years. A number of these waterholes are now maintained throughout the year, thereby ensuring the livelihoods of thousands of animals, and excellent game viewing as wildlife congregates at these points.
