Two types of superb accommodation at Ivory Lodge enhance your safari bliss in the immense beauty of Hwange National Park, place of elephants and treehouse chalets packed with luxury amenities.
Find the Ivory Lodge rustic chic tree houses elevated on wooden platforms with large mesh windows to allow the views and sun inside, 360-degree outlooks of the 6 000 acres in the Sikumi Forest Reserve. It’s just outside Hwange on the main road between Victoria Falls and Bulawayo and recently saw the addition of two deluxe Presidential suites with private decks and awesome views, exclusive interior décor and modern bathrooms in the rawness of nature.
Ivory Lodge, named after the beautiful elephant herds that have inhabited this land for eons, features welcoming guest areas under thatch to encourage new friendships around the bar, the dining area and swimming pool. Chill out in the shady gardens where warthogs graze, mongoose run and myriad birds flit and sing. Everything is open to the views of the waterhole where elephants hang out, and maybe a predator or two later one when the stars appear in the vast indigo skies
A fantastic feature is a hide at the water hole, not far from the lounge, for really close observation of birds, hippos, plains game in herds, buffalo and even lions. It’s a family-friendly environment with fencing to keep guests safe between game drives and bush walks. Night drives in the concession reveal thrilling sightings of leopards, anteaters and other nocturnal creatures such as owls and jackals. Visit a local village to learn more about sustainable ecotourism projects in Hwange and its surrounds, your very holiday at Ivory Lodge makes this possible.
In the Place of the Elephants lies the Zimbabwe safari lodge with a name to revere these giant herbivores – Ivory Lodge sits cosily in the indigenous Teak trees within beautiful Hwange National Park, small and lavish, shy and surprisingly comfortable where wilderness surrounds the visitor. It’s made to be a base from which to view the Presidential Elephant Herd, to learn from them and to see their way of life.
Ivory Lodge is a rustic chic space, embracing a thatched dining and lounge area, open to the views, with a dazzling swimming pool, all turned towards the waterhole, elephants’ playground, herds of buck gathering here too, and the odd predator lurking.
Harking back to days of hunting safaris and luxury camps were key, Ivory Lodge is a serene destination made for those who want to bond with elephants in their natural habitat. They wander around your stilted chalet, grumbling and munching, curious about you as you peer from your private deck, the camera always at the ready. You meet them in their ancient forest, and you observe and learn from them in the shade of earthy knowledge.
Hundreds of these elephants migrate in a cycle, their huge tusks leading them, from Botswana dense Okavango and Moremi conservation areas to Hwange National Park, feeding all the way, enriching their diets in the shade and drinking here, at Ivory Lodge’s welcoming waterhole.
Ivory Lodge offers transfers between Victoria Falls, Bulawayo and this region to ensure guests enjoy a stress-free safari holiday in treehouses made for immersion in an elephant’s world. Choose from 7 raised wooden tree houses with every comfort you need in a bush ‘hotel’ and two presidential suites for those who desire a bit more, plus extreme privacy, in the bush of Hwange, Zimbabwe.
