Hwange National Park is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe. Situated on the easternmost edge of the Kalahari Desert, its 1.4 million hectares (3.4 million acres) of sandy soils support extensive stands of broad-leafed woodland that during the summer months, despite the low rainfall, are a profusion of green. Along with saltpans, acacia scrub and grasslands the Park supports an enormous abundance of wildlife. Located on the border with Botswana, the Park was proclaimed some 70 years ago and has one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, in particular its herds of elephant and buffalo. There are a number of shallow pans spread throughout the Park, around which wildlife congregates, making for excellent game viewing. The private Makalolo and Linkwasha concessions, situated in its south-eastern corner, are ecologically diverse, including vast open palm-fringed plains, grasslands, acacia woodlands and teak forests. This ensures large numbers of animals all year round – elephant, buffalo, sable, roan, giraffe, wildebeest, impala and even gemsbok. These are followed by their predators: lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah, along with African wildcat, serval, honey badger, civet and spotted hyena. Of avian interest are species like Dickinson’s Kestrel, Bradfield’s Hornbill and Arnot’s Chat.
