On the fourth day of your trip, you will transfer by road to Elephant’s Eye, which is about 13 kilometres from Hwange National Park. This is a fantastic little safari camp! There are three communal buildings – one for a comfy lounge and library, another for a spacious dining room, and the third for a bar and viewing deck. The deck is located above the bar, so the views across grass to a busy waterhole are absolutely spectacular! Elephant’s Eye has a fire-pit too, as well as a swimming pool. The guest accommodation consists of eight tented chalets, all spaced well apart so each feels very private. Every chalet is furnished in a contemporary style and includes a king-size bed, freestanding fan, tea and coffee station, and woodburning stove. The en-suite facilities are very well appointed, with both bath and shower, and you can enjoy watching the local wildlife from your very own deck! Activities here focus on the wildlife, with game drives available both in the camp’s concession and in Hwange. All Big Five are in residence, in addition to an abundance of other predators and herbivores – and over 400 species of bird! Walking safaris may be booked in advance, and you can also visit a local village and check out the Painted Dog Conservation Centre.

Board basis and activities:
Full-board accommodation including all meals, soft drinks, selection of house alcoholic drinks, and a laundry service.
