Hwange National Park Airport (IATA: HWN, ICAO: FVWN) is an airport in Zimbabwe that serves the Hwange National Park. Because of the ongoing economic situation in Zimbabwe, and the 2012 collapse of Air Zimbabwe, services are limited, but charter and a 3 times per week scheduled rotation to Victoria Falls is currently operated (April 2011) by Solenta Aviation using a 12-seat Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft.

Air Zimbabwe formerly included Hwange National Park on its daily internal service of Harare - Victoria Falls - Hwange - Kariba - Harare.

The Hwange VOR-DME (Ident: VWN) is located on the field. The Hwange non-directional beacon (Ident: PO) is located 4.4 nautical miles (8.1 km) off the threshold of runway 08.[3][4]
