We obtain solitary wave and other solutions to the Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation governed by dual-power-law nonlinearity. The travelling-wave hypothesis is applied to obtain the 1-soliton solution and the solution in series method reveals topological soliton solutions. Constraint conditions are identified in all these methods.
