Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest wildlife reserve, is home to an abundance of iconic African animals, including elephants, lions, and buffaloes.

However, the park’s proximity to human settlements has led to an escalating human-wildlife conflict, posing a significant threat to both people and wildlife.

Several factors contribute to the human-wildlife conflict in Hwange. One of the primary causes is the expansion of human settlements into areas surrounding the park, leading to encroachment on wildlife habitats.

This encroachment has resulted in increased competition for resources, such as water and food, between humans and animals.

The human-wildlife conflict in Hwange has severe consequences for both people and wildlife. Humans face the risk of injury, death, and crop destruction, while wildlife is exposed to habitat loss, poaching, and retaliatory killings.
