Spirit of Zimbabwe
Capture the spirit of Zimbabwe by combining one of the Seven Wonders of the World – the Victoria Falls – with the wildlife of Hwange. By experiencing the north-west and south-east of Hwange, you can enjoy the Park’s incredible mix of habitats and thus a spectacular diversity of fauna.
VICTORIA FALLS SAFARI LODGE – Victoria Falls
Located just four kilometres from the iconic Victoria Falls and adjacent to the Zambezi National Park, the lodge overlooks a central waterhole that attracts various wildlife. All the rooms have private decks, offering impressive views of the bushveld and brilliant African sunsets. The lodge also boasts two of Zimbabwe’s top restaurants, The Boma – Place of Eating and the à la carte MaKuwa-Kuwa. At The Boma you will enjoy a unique dining experience that includes traditional dancers, an interactive drumming show and mouth- watering local dishes, whilst the restful MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant will delight you with spectacular views onto the waterhole.
HWANGE BUSH CAMP – Hwange National Park
Operating between May and November each year, Hwange Bush Camp is located in the north-west of Hwange National park and offers scenic diversity. The six spacious twin-bedded Meru tents each have private en-suite facilities, which include flush toilets and hot water provided on request for the bucket showers. The shaded lounge and dining area is the focal point of the camp, tastefully decorated with hints of rustic old-world charm, reminiscent of the days of early explorers to the continent.
DAVISON’S – Hwange National Park
Hwange National Park – Zimbabwe’s largest – is a savannah mosaic, with one of the largest concentrations of fauna in southern Africa. Situated in the south-east in the private Linkwasha Concession, Davison’s is named after the Park’s first warden, Ted Davison. The tents and main area overlook a waterhole attracting a variety of plains game and predators. We have partnered with the National Park in jointly combating the effects of poaching along Hwange’s southern boundary, an area beyond our concession and take responsibility for maintaining 14 of Hwange’s boreholes in the Concession to sustain its wildlife, especially in winter when water sources become scarce.
