Winter in Hwange is Photography Heaven

Winter in Hwange is Photography Heaven


Hwange National Park is always an incredible sight with lots of wild happenings year round, but the winter season is an especially treasured time of year. The rains have past, the skies shine bright, and the chilly temperatures make for a good excuse to sip on Amarula (or hot chocolate) and enjoy cosy nights by the fire.

It’s also the driest season of all, which means the local waterholes are teeming with wildlife. The best kind of happy hour a safari-lover could ask for is in the bush!

The Hide Safari Camp has the privilege of being able to enjoy the endless novelties that the new season provides. And while we all can’t attest to the winter beauty firsthand, we can share a taste of its ‘wow factor’ through pictures.

A few winter highlights that are 100% photography heaven:
