Hwange National Park is very accessible. Main Camp can be reached on a tar road, 200km/124mi south of Victoria Falls. The drive takes up to 3 hours*. To reach some of the other camps deeper in the park, a 4WD vehicle might be necessary, especially during the wet months from November to March. Some of the lodges have airstrips for charter flights.

You will probably arrive in Zimbabwe through Victoria Falls International Airport (VFA), near the town of Victoria Falls. Usually you will be picked up from the airport or hotel by your tour operator, who will organize onward travel throughout the country as part of your tour package.

There are no scheduled flights to Hwange.

*Driving times are only a rough indication. You should always consider the possibility of significant delays.
