Enjoy an Elephant’s Eye view at Hwange

With a focus on sustainability, no detail has been spared in providing luxury, comfort and quality service at Elephant’s Eye, Hwange Lodge

The first lodge of its kind for African Luxury HideawaysElephant’s Eye, Hwange offers personalised, friendly service in a stunning natural environment. The eight tented en-suite chalets boast king/twin beds. All chalets are designed to offer the best views with maximum comfort and authentic African detail throughout. Each day at the lodge, a guide is on site to walk clients to and from communal areas and chalets, and see that individual needs are met at all times.

Activities include game viewing, guided educational walks, bird watching, and night game drives, all with Zimbabwe professional guides. Guests can also swim or enjoy sundowners while relaxing near the natural ozone eco-pool. The Elephant’s Eye, Hwange has a waterhole which offers unlimited opportunities to view game at close range.

Elephant’s Eye, Hwange is located on a private concession 13km from the entrance to Hwange National Park. This, the largest park in Zimbabwe, covers approximately 14,650 square kilometers. Named after a local chief, Hwange is situated in the northwest corner of the country about an hour south of the mighty Victoria Falls. Because of its close proximity to the Falls, Hwange boasts an incredible biodiversity of flora and fauna, and a plethora of African wildlife. There are over 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 bird species recorded in Hwange National Park. Specifically, the elephant population in Hwange is one of the largest in the world.

The philosophy here is one of barefoot luxury focused on eco-friendly design and empowerment. Solar energy is used to power the lodges. Instead of using salt or chlorine, the pools use a natural ozone system to filter the water and keep it clean. Agreements with the surrounding villages are in place to buy produce, thus empowering the people and supporting the villages in ongoing and sustainable ways.
