Just like any other place in Zimbabwe tourist need to be careful of thieves, the sad economic situation in Zimbabwe is destroying this once best place to visit. Hwange is a coal mining town,there is'nt much in the town. Located on a major rail line you can catch the daily Bulawayo Vic Falls train or by road through laxaury buses.
There are a variety of accomadation options available at the three main rest camps Maincamp, Robins and Sinimatella camps. Ranging from luxury to basic camping. Contact National Parks office to book your accomadation in Harare.
Main Camp is of the course the hub of Hwange natinal park .It is the main centre for all activities based in the park, the is an abundance of viewing opportunities available within a short drive out of the camp gates.
Sinimatella camp is a couple of hours drive from main camp andis situated on a mesa overlooking the plains. An abundance of buffalo, elephant and lion make this camp a highlight to any african wildlife safari.
Robins Camp is the most basic of the camps, but it gives the traveller a more realistic view of the bush and it's wildlife. The accomadations are a lot closer to nature and a lot more rustic. Wildlife viewing is available along the rough roads.
