The coming days are all about game activities. Hwange is particularly known for the large groups of elephants, buffalo, zebras and giraffes that live there. All endangered species from Zimbabwe are found in the park; gemsboks and brown hyenas in reasonable numbers and the number of wild dogs in the park is one of the largest in Africa. The landscape varies from desert sand on the western edge that borders the Kalahari to forest field and grassland and in a number of places granite rocks and boulders.

The area was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003 because of the unique granite rock formations that sometimes seem to balance, shallow caves where bushman rock art can be found and a variety of flora and fauna. The highest point in these hills is Gulati with a top of 1549 meters. The founder of Rhodesia (the country that we now know as Zimbabwe), Cecile Rhodes, is buried in his favorite place: World’s View. A simple memorial stone marks his grave from where one has a beautiful view of “his” beloved country. Today the area is still of great spiritual value for the local tribes such as the Ndebele.
