Water for Hwange Safari | Where Conservation Meets Adventure

Imvelo-Safari-Lodges---Camelthorn----18-of-46 Water for Hwange Safari - Where conservation meets adventure

I recently returned from a month in Southern Africa including Zimbabwe (my favorite emerging destination in this region), and wanted to let you know about a new safari I've handcrafted to help make a difference in that part of the world. I've designed our new Water for Hwange Conservation Safari to not only be a once-in-a-lifetime experience with a very special guide and premier wildlife camps but also to help local elephant conservation and community efforts by providing solar hybrid water pumps in Hwange National Park. 

Hwange National Park is about an hour south of Victoria Falls and is the largest park in Zimbabwe, occupying over 5,500 square miles. The park's elephant population is one of the largest in the world with over 45,000 in the park. Hwange's grasslands and mopane woodlands boast a tremendous selection of wildlife with over 100 species of mammals including lions, leopard, cheetah, African wild dogs and even rare plains game like sable antelope.

But, this park, its wildlife and the people who live near it are in need of help. When this park was created in the 1920's, its boundaries failed to include a reliable water supply, a major ecological oversight. The thirsty herds of Hwange currently rely on an aging infrastructure of diesel pumps and boreholes for water to survive each dry season. This is why we are running the second trip of our Water for Hwange Safari that I will be co-leading along with conservation and safari guru Mark Butcher June 10-20, 2020. 

How this trip gives back

As travelers, we have an opportunity to experience all that Hwange has to offer today while protecting and preserving it for generations to come. To that end, in order to help upgrade the park's failing water resources, this new safari adventure raises funds for replacement solar and hybrid water pumps within Hwange and the local villages adjacent to the park. And the best part of this endeavor? Both Hwange's wildlife and its human neighbors will mutually benefit from these more reliable water resources.

This safari is a unique opportunity to experience Zimbabwe with an insider's perspective while positively contributing to the local community and conservation efforts in Hwange. (VIEW ITINERARY)

P.S. Watch the videos below to get a feel for what you'll experience!

Below is video footage from my recent trip to Zimbabwe where I spent some time at Jozibanini Wilderness Camp in Hwange National Park. They've created an elephant "look up" blind by modifying a standard steel shipping container. If you have never been this close to such a big animal before, it's an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, encounter of profound proportions and just one of the ways that we go wild in Zimbabwe.
