The great herds of Cape Buffalo and Elephant (almost 30 000) are a sight to see in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe. With over 100 mammal species, Hwange is a major wildlife hotspot for any national park in the world. Lion and Leopard are regularly encountered on a Zimbabwe safari. Amongst all the big game, equally fascinating and specialised small carnivores include Bat-eared Fox, Side-striped Jackal and Selous’ Mongoose. The Linkwasha Concession and Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe provides consistently good viewing of specialised species such as Roan, Sable, White Rhino and Eland.
