Ivory Safari Lodge is an exclusive bush retreat hidden away in a 6000 acre conservancy that borders the Hwange National Park. It caters for a maximum of 12 guests with its 6 suites raised on wooden decks that merge into a giant canopy of teak trees. It is famous for its marauding herds of elephants which meander their way through camp and come to drink at the waterhole. The central living area consists of a dining room, well-stocked bar and reference library where you can get to grips with the fauna and flora of the region. Many an evening is spent around the campfire swapping stories and enjoying a traditional African barbeque at the boma.
Accommodation consists of 6 suites, each providing tailor-made armchair game viewing over the teeming waterhole that is floodlit by night. The suites have en-suite bathrooms and come with all the creature comforts one would expect. Guests can also congregate at the hide alongside the waterhole and marvel at wild animals passing right before your very eyes - you could not ask for a better photo opportunity!
Ivory Lodge is famous for its huge herds of elephants - sometimes over 100 strong - which wander through the camp at will. Many of these are massive bulls with gigantic tusks which are part of the famous presidential herd. They are often found drinking and playing around at the waterhole, and guests frequently get up close and personal with these mighty beasts. The rest of the Big Five - lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo - are all found in the neighbouring Hwange National Park, as well as over 400 species of birds, abundant plains game and many mammals. Ivory Lodge offers game drives and guided foot safaris through the national park as well as their own private concession - the best of both worlds!
