BOMANI TENTED CAMP is situated in the south east corner of Ngamo Forest Area. Two kilometres
from the boundary of Hwange National Park's Ngamo entrance gate. Bomani pan is the only permanent
year round waterhole within this portion of the Forest Area. As the dry season progresses, large numbers
of elephant herds, sable, waterbuck and wildebeest drink at the pan daily.
The camp has 8 tents – 16 beds, offering a personal and exclusive touch. Four of the spacious tents are
built on teakwood platforms 5 feet above the ground overlooking Bomani pan; and the other four are on
ground level – ‘close to nature’. The tents are exquisitely furnished and have en-suite shower, toilet and
basin with hot and cold running water. The deck in front of the tent provides a superb spot to sip coffee or
tea in the early morning.
The main lodge overlooks Bomani pan and comprises of the dining area, lounge, bar area and viewing
platform in front of the bar. Two fireplaces provide warmth during the cool winter evenings and guests
may also choose to sit around a fire pit in front of the main lodge and enjoy cocktails under the stars while
listening to the sounds of the African bush.
Hwange Park is the largest National Park in Zimbabwe and one of the great parks of Africa. It supports
over 40,000 elephant and the largest number of mammal and bird species found in any of Zimbabwe's
parks. Scattered within the prevalent woodlands are ancient fossil lake beds that today are large
savannah grasslands. These areas provide the best game viewing area of the park and arguably the best
in Zimbabwe. Abundant game on the plains also supports good numbers of large predators. A resident
pride of lion can be heard roaring from the camp on most nights. Several different leopard territories
surround the plain and a pack of wild dog den within an easy drive of camp. Cheetah and hyena are also
regularly seen in the area.
Your experienced, armed, licensed professional guides are an encyclopaedia of information about the
wildlife in the area and can conduct walking safaris in the wilderness area. Their experience with big game
will make an approach on foot to a herd of bull elephant not only extraordinarily exciting, but also safe.
Apart from daylight game viewing trips our guests can enjoy a short drive at night before or after supper
with a spotlight to see some of the interesting nocturnal animals in the area. Village visits into the
neighbouring tribal area provide a fascinating insight into the real lives of the Ndebele people in the
villages of Vozheka, Ngamo and Ngunyana. So come with us on a safari of a lifetime.
