Run by conservation minded-company Imvelo, Bomani Tented Lodge works hard to help support both the people and the wildlife of Hwange. After your Big Five safaris, you can take part in ‘pump runs’, meet the local villagers or go on a school tour.
We rate Camelthorn pretty highly, for its effortless combination of authenticity and comfort – and, of course, for its interest in ethical tourism. It is a great option for travellers who would really like to get to know the area around Hwange!
It is named after Ted Davison, the first Head Warden of Hwange National Park. Davison’s really is a great place to go to get the most out of Hwange – and the village visits are a definite draw.
We really rate Ivory Lodge, as a fantastic base to explore Hwange – and thanks to the hide, you do not even need to leave camp to see game.
We are happy to recommend Khulu as an exclusive little lodge with everything going for it – and if you have a passion for painted dogs, a trip to the Research Center is a definite draw!
As a Wilderness Safaris property, in the Classic Camps range, Linkwasha Camp combines luxury living with authentic experiences.
We rate Nehimba pretty highly, with its fabulous location and wide range of activities. And don’t forget your camera, as the views from the hide are well worth capturing and savouring for years to follow.
Somalisa Acacia is a great little camp for travellers in search of that authentic safari experience. However, due to the prevalence of big game in the area, we do recommend that children are constantly supervised!
Somalisa Camp is owned and operated by African Bush Camps, a company that aims to provide an authentic safari experience.
Known affectionately as ‘Little Mak', Little Makalolo Camp is a great option for travellers who have an interest in Hwange’s cultural aspects as well as its amazing wildlife!
The Hide was constructed by the Preston family in 1992. We reckon The Hide has loads to recommend it, not least those little hideaways!
It is situated in the western region of Hwange National Park, within a private concession and overlooking a wonderful waterhole forming part of Shumba Pans.
It is one of several mobile camps operated by Kazuma Trails, a company owned by Antonette and David ‘Bushdog’ Carson.
It is situated approximately 13km outside the eastern border of Hwange National Park, within a private concession totalling 25 sq. km. It is only 10 minutes’ drive from Hwange’s airstrip. The lodge is fairly new, having opened in Summer 2013.
Tom’s Little Hide is a fantastic option for a group of travellers, especially one that includes children. We love the authentic design of the house. Five stars!
Jozibanini Camp is the newest addition to safari properties in the wildlife-rich Hwange National Park. With just three guest tents, it provides a very personalised service!
Somalisa Expeditions is an awesome option for travelling looking for authentic safari experiences in a wildlife-rich region of Hwange.
We recommend The Private Hide if you are hoping to travel as a group, favouring exclusive-use accommodation. The accommodation is both authentic and comfortable – and the location is stunning!
Led by Stretch Ferreira, giant among safari guides, this operation offers authentic experiences of Mana Pools from a classic base camp! As the camp is unfenced, we recommend it for ages 16 years and over.
It is classified as a Classic Camp by the company, indicating stylish accommodation within remote surroundings. Ruckomechi is designed to be environmentally friendly, with hot water and lighting supplied by solar power.
Kanga Camp is a stunning tented camp set in a remote part of the World Heritage Site, Mana Pools.
Little Vundu Tented Camp is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, approximately 3km upstream from sister camp Vundu. Like Vundu, it is owned and operated by Nick Murray.
At Yellow Zebra, we think Vundu Camp is pretty special. With its fabulous location and first-rate guiding, it is ideal for travellers who want to really get to know the Zambezi and Mana Pools!
Zambezi Expeditions is owned by African Bush Camps, the company run by famous safari guide Beks Ndlovu and his wife Sophia.
Bumi Hills is ideal for travellers who like a little luxury on safari. And we rate the lodge for its interest in local culture and efforts to give back to the Tonga community.
Changa Safari Camp was set up in 2012 by the Higgins and Prestons, Zimbabwean families with an immense passion for Safari Africa. For many years, they had dreamed of constructing a camp in Matusadona National Park, on the shores of Lake Kariba.
Musango was established by Steve Edwards, formerly head warden of Matusadona National Park. We think it is pretty special. Its location is amazing but the standard of guiding really contributes to making a stay here an unforgettable experience!
Without doubt, the quality of activities on offer at Rhino is enhanced by the camp’s guides, highly trained individuals who have a real passion for safari! The camp itself is able to offer a very personalised service due to its small size.
Big Cave Camp is owned and operated by the Waddy family. It has a lot to recommend it, including being able to accommodate children of all ages! There is plenty to do for everyone, within this fabulous location in Matobo Hills.
Camp Amalinda is owned and operated by the Amalinda Collection. Camp Amalinda is hard to beat as a luxury safari option in Matobo Hills. And honeymooners will love the extra privacy of the suites, built so imaginatively into the rocks!
