Situated in the southeast corner of Ngamo Forest Area a area rich with animals

Bomani Tented Lodge Accommodation
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 or buffalo 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.
The other four are on ground level – ‘close to nature’.

Hwange Parkis 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.
Ngamo Plains Hwange
Ngamo Plains
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.

Game walks in Hwange
game viewing on foot

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.
