Ivory Lodge Description
Ivory Lodge is set on its own 6 000 acre conservancy bordering Hwange National Park which is the largest National Park in Zimbabwe – equivalent in size to Wales. Hwange has always been one of the best places to visit for a broad range of safari experiences and Ivory Lodge is “big game” country – lion, elephant leopard and buffalo are seen regularly from camp as well as in the park. Ivory is built in the tree tops of giant teak forests – diverse habitats attract a variety of wildlife and bird life. This camp offers personal attention to a maximum of 12 guests only. Accommodation and Facilities The elevated en suite rooms are positioned with sweeping views of the waterhole that is floodlit by night. Night sounds become a mysterious cochaphony of bugs and predators on the prowl which keep you wide eyed to the earliest hours The central dining area, bar and library are set around the deep blue pool - a welcome haven from the scorching mid-day heat. Bush cuisine offers campfire barbeques under a massive blanket of stars. The hide out next to the waterhole is a refuge where a heightened wildlife experience is within a stones throw away. You don’t require a large tele-photo lens to get some incredible close-ups of the big 5 that frequent the pan. Winter evenings are spent around the boma area – a log fire “star gazing pit” which has a direct view to the floodlit pan, so nothing goes unseen….. Game Viewing and Activities Hwange National Park is famous for its “giant tuskers” – huge old elephant bulls with massive tusks. Herds of over 200 feed and water around the park on their migrational trek between Botswana and Zimbabwe. Foot safaris were perfected in Hwange – our professional guides are amongst the highest trained and qualified in Africa. They become your personal safari companion and one which great experiences are shared. Walking with them on our property and in the park is an opportunity unsurpassed by any other wilderness experience. It’s not all about the big game though, they show you much, much more…
