Ivory Lodge: Our View
Situated on its own 6000-acre private concession bordering Hwange National Park, Ivory Lodge is a small, intimate bush-camp featuring only nine en-suite tree-house rooms. Each tree-house room is elevated on stilts and beautifully situated amongst the teak trees. They are quite simple and rustic in style but very comfortable, and all have large verandahs with views over the waterhole and surrounding plains. A notable highlight is the number of animals that can be spotted in and around the camp both from your room and the hide. In particular, large herds of elephants visiting the waterhole are a regular sighting. The waterhole is also floodlit at night, and being able to sit on your verandah whilst watching the nocturnal animals that visit it is a truly wonderful experience.
There is a central open-air thatched dining area and bar with a viewing platform overlooking the river and also a fire pit and a small swimming pool. The lodge offers wholesome, hearty, family meals with buffet and cooked breakfast, as well as a 2-course lunch and 3-course dinner. A wide variety of dishes and cuisines are available to satisfy any appetite.
Activities offered are game drives in Ivory Lodge's private conservancy and Hwange National Park. Game walks and night drives are also possible in their conservancy area as well as cultural visits to local villages and a visit to the nearby Wild Dog Research Project.
