Take advange of our low season offer for 2018 for travel in the green season. Spend six nights on safari in the Hwange National Park across two lodges, Bomani Tented Camp in the south east and Nehimba lodge in the north. Hwange National Park is well known for its large herds of elephant and magnificent lion prides, the diverse wilderness of Hwange National Park supports large numbers of buffalo and antelope along with giraffe, zebra and a variety of smaller animals and birds species. Predators such as lion, cheetah and wild dog are present too and thrive on the abundance of food in the area.

The camps are small and authentic and offer an incredible wild safari experience for the true adventurer. Your days on safari are spent on morning and afternoon game drives led by experienced guides – some of the best in Africa. All meals and drinks are included and you will be spoilt for choice.

Seating 22 passengers in an open railcar – you have a chance to spot game such as kudu, wildebeest, elephant and even the big cats (to name a few) along the 2 hour journey.
