Escape the noise, hustle and bustle of the modern world at Elephant’s Eye, Hwange lodge. Feel at one with nature as you take in the quiet while overlooking the lodge’s waterhole that is frequented by a myriad of wildlife, including of course, the majestic herds of elephants that Hwange is famous for.

Situated a mere 13 km away from the entrance to Hwange National Park, on a private concession, Elephant’s Eye, Hwange offers an intimate and welcoming experience with just eight tented en-suite chalets. You can melt away your worries in a bath with a view, shower with nothing but nature, relax at the world class Jwapi Spa or indulge in magnificent cuisine in the dining area or with a special bush dining or boma experience.

And if you really feel the need to escape from reality, spend a night on the open-aired sleep-out deck, The Eye, where you can stargaze to the sound of lions roaring or awake to watch the animals take their early morning drink at the waterhole.

After relaxing, Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest national park is right on your doorstep – ready to be explored! The park boasts an incredible biodiversity of flora and fauna including over 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 bird species. During your stay you can enjoy game drives, guided walks, birdwatching excursions, night drives and sundowners at the waterhole. A visit to the Painted Dog Conservation Centre or to a traditional African homestead will round off your once in a lifetime Zimbabwe experience.

Attention to detail and friendly service in the heart of the African bush will put you at ease. You will enjoy the quiet, beautiful views looking onto a waterhole which is frequented by elephants and other game, allowing you to feel at one with nature.
