Hwange National Park (I)

At 14,651 sq km, i.e., about the size of Northern Ireland, Hwange National Park is the largest national park in Zimbabwe. Hwange is also home to 30,000 wild African elephants - one of the largest such populations worldwide. We also came across lions, jackels, zebras and antelopes...

It was also here that we were surprised by our inability to notice a pride of 4 lions sitting still on the grass patch less than 50m away. We changed our minds about wanting to do a stroll on our own around the waterhole outside our lodge...all the nice antelopes and waterbirds around it... and who knows, well-camouflaged lions and leopards too.
