Mighty herds of elephants move in seasonal migration from Botswana’s dense feeding areas to Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe in search of its waterhole – their refuge from the searing heat. Silently, Ivory Safari Lodge watches over these gentle giants as they lumber through the intimate lodge to find relief in the shade of its massive trees.
From the tentative plains game and flitting birds to the big cat carnivores and buffalo herds up to 500-strong, all wildlife make their way to the lodge’s waterhole to drink their fill. However, all give way to the colossal large-tusked bull elephants or "tuskers". Watch the elephants wade into the water, spray water from their trunks, and play-fight on the muddy banks. Experience the exhilarating rush as you get close to them on walking safaris, or see them trek across the plains on game drives.
The seven elevated Treehouse Rooms and two grand tented Presidential Suites are designed to wrap guests in privacy and style. The thatched central dining area, fully-stocked bar and comfortable library all command views of the active waterhole and swimming pool, which is a cooling retreat from the midday heat.
