4-day Hwange National Park Explorer (Superior)

Spend 3-nights at Verney’s Camp.  Situated in a remote southeastern part of the Hwange National Park, the camp is on a private concession. Verney’s Camp is on a large open floodplain surrounded by mopane and teak forests in which Machaba Safaris’ tents are tucked. In a once overlooked corner of Hwange, Verney’s Camp has 10 spacious, tented suites scattered around a waterhole in its own peaceful concession. This relaxed camp is far enough from the popular parts of the park to feel exclusive and remote, while close enough for drives in the most established, wildlife-rich areas.

Hwange is named after a local Nhanzwa chief, Hwange National Park covers approximately 14,650 square kilometres. It became the royal hunting grounds to the Ndebele warrior-king Mzilikazi in the early 19th Century and was set aside as a National Park in 1929. Hwange boasts a tremendous selection of wildlife with over 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 bird species recorded. The elephants of Hwange are world-famous and the Park’s elephant population is one of the largest in the world.
