PLANNING TO VISIT?
The May–September dry season, when animals congregate around water sources, is the best time to visit Zimbabwe. The December–March rainy season is great for birdwatching, but some camps close at this time.
Hwange is home to some of Africa’s best safari camps, including Nehimba Lodge ( imvelosafarilodges.com), Camp Hwange ( camp-hwange. com), Somalisa Expeditions ( africanbushcamps.com), The Hide ( thehide.com), Davison’s Camp ( wilderness-safaris.com) and Verney’s Camp ( machabasafaris. com/verneys-camp).
