At just over 14 600 square kilometres, Hwange is the largest National Park in Zimbabwe, and one of the most important natural sanctuaries for wildlife in Southern Africa. The stunning landscapes of Hwange include desert sand to sparse woodland, as well as grasslands and granite outcrops. Hwange has an interesting and diverse range of landscapes, with one part running alongside the North-eastern end of the Kalahari Desert. The south is sandy with extensive forests and open grassland. A feature of the area is ancient fossil dunes - ancient sand dunes held together by vegetation. In this wonderful setting grows very large Acacia trees attracting some wonderful Giraffe Herds. This album is about the animal and its favored turf.
