Hwange National Park, a two-hour drive from Victoria Falls, is the largest game park in Zimbabwe, covering approximately 14,650 sq km. Numerous species of mammals populate the vast game park including the big five, plenty of smaller plains game and over 400 species of birds. Undoubtedly the big drawcard is the 40,000-strong population of elephants, as well as the opportunity to spot the majestic lions that roam the open plains.
