Mostly deep Kalahari sand dotted with patches of mopane woodland, Hwange National Park doesn’t sound particularly safari-like. And it wouldn’t be were it not for the network of watery pans, artificially pumped in the dry season, and the life source for over 100 mammal species. Elephants are the stars of the show here however, and the enormous pachyderms plod majestically over the plains and through the pretty camps to get to their drinking holes (and sometimes the camp swimming pool!)
