Description

Bomani Lodge

Hwange National Park

Bomani Lodge lies just outside Hwange National Park and offers excellent game viewing in a private concession with access to the park itself. The camp lies in the remote Sikumbi Forest Reserve and the lodge vehicles have their own private gate into Hwange. This Southern area of the park is more private, less vehicles are seen and the Ngamo Plains are well known for incredible Elephant herds.

The lodge has been built on the edge of a small waterhole that is filled regularly and attracts a great diversity and number of animals.

One of the eccentric features of Bomani Lodge is the Elephant Express, a modified railway carriage. The carriage runs on the tracks originally constructed by Cecil John Rhodes on the Eastern boundary of the park. It’s a great way to arrive on safari as it is more comfortable than a vehicle – not so much bouncing – and allows you to get up and walk around.

Chalets & Tented Suites

There are 5 Saddle Bill tents that are the rustic option of accommodation. Raised off the ground they have canvas walls and mesh windows that can be closed at night. Twin or double beds, en-suite bathrooms and a small deck at the front, these do not overlook the waterhole but have great views over the open pan area.

Four Spurwing suites are more luxurious, spacious, built at ground level and overlooking the waterhole from the deck at the front of each room. These can also be made up as twin or doubles and have a small lounge area for relaxation. The en-suite bathroom is slightly larger than the Saddle Bill tents.

The Sable Suite is at the far end of the lodge. Raised on a wooden platform this is ideal for families or friends travelling together. Both rooms have their own en-suite bathroom with outside shower, lounge and dining area. This can accommodate up to 6 guests.

The Thatched Chalet is built of brick rather than canvas and has two separate bedrooms that share a bathroom. This room has both air conditioning and satellite television.
