Hwange National Park
Jozibanini Camp is located in a very remote and un-touched area of the South Western section of Hwange National Park. There was once a rangers station here many years ago but this was abandoned and the lease for the concession has been taken over with the aim of establishing a permanent presence for tourism and to deter poaching.
“Jozi” has several sister camps in Hwange and can be combined with any of these for a full experience of this fantastic park. The main guest area is an open plan lounge and dining room with perfect views over the Jozibanini Pan and the wildlife that come to drink at the waterhole. I spent an entire day relaxing here watching wildlife and bird watching – it was magical!
There are just 5 safari tents at Jozi, three of these are twins and 2 are doubles, all are raised on wooden decks with views out over the waterhole. A very exciting development is the beds are all on wheels allowing them to be relocated onto your deck for a “star bed” experience and sleeping out under the billions of stars.
The en-suite bathrooms are open to the skies with vanity basin, toilet and bucket shower.
Guiding at the lodge is excellent to say the least. Zimbabweans are really kind people that love sharing the wealth of their knowledge which is incredibly broad. These guides all grew up in this area and know the plants and animals very well.
Children are welcome at Jozi from 12 and upwards paying 50% of the adult rate.
