Etosha National Park, Namibia vs Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe in February

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I will be in both Namibia and Zimbabwe in February. I am going independantly and my planned itinerary allows for either 3 days in Etosha National Park, Namibia OR 3 days in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.

I understand that Etosha might be very hot, whereas Hwange may be fairly wet and have less game visibility due to plant growth.

If I go to Etosha I will be self-driving, whereas in Hwange I'll probably be staying at one of the private lodges (with safari included)

I would be interested in knowing which of the two people recommend for viewing animals at this time of year, as well as best overall experience.

Many thanks
