Has anyone been to Hwange recently?

We are looking at visiting Zimbabwe in Oct, has anyone been to Hwange recently as we would like to add it to our trip?

We are a large group of people, many who have never been to Africa before. We are visiting Vic Falls and wanting to go on safari - is there much game in Hwange at the moment? Does anyone know of any budget accommodation?
Thanks for any suggestions!

Not been for many years, but I heard from someone who went last year who said that a lot of the wildlife had been decimated by illegal snares.

Might be worth considering Chobe in Botswana instead. Not that far from Vic Falls. Reply to this

I agree with Jezz, try Botswana as you can transfer by road from Victoria Falls and are almost guaranteed excellent game viewing.
They might be able to help advise you.
