Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe is one of Africa's great wildlife reserves. Early wardens in the 1920s faced a challenge with wildlife leaving the park during the dry seasons and driving human-wildlife conflict where elephants often lost out. Pumping water kept elephants in the park but now that infrastructure has aged. Learn how eco-tourism drives a more sustainable solution for wildlife conservation and local community development.
