A welcoming and comfortable tented camp set in a private concession adjoining Zimbabwe’s Hwange National park, Elephant’s Eye is perfectly placed to view the prolific wildlife of the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe. Easily accessible from Victoria Falls, the private concession has several waterholes attracting elephants, lions and a wide variety of game and offers night game drives as well as guided walks and bird watching. With a natural ozone swimming pool and an appealing spa, there is plenty of opportunity for unwinding in between wildlife viewing too and the smiling staff create a memorable atmosphere for an authentic African safari experience.
The eight tented chalets are spread out at the edge of the trees, raised on stilts to have wonderful views over the waterhole and plenty of privacy. A thick thatched roof shades the canvas walls and solid wood floors give a feeling of permanence, with a shady private deck for armchair wildlife viewing. King size or twin beds are generously canopied with mosquito netting, the elegant contemporary decor reflects the colours of the African bush, and the wood burning stove in the bedroom creates a cosy atmosphere on chilly winter nights. In the en-suite bathroom, as well as an open-air shower and flush toilet, a bathtub with a view adds a feeling of indulgence.
Friendly and knowledgeable guides unveil the secrets of the bush, whether exploring the concession on morning and evening game drives and bush walks, or heading into Hwange National Park for a full day drive with picnic lunch. Known for its large elephant population, unspoilt Hwange has an incredible diversity of flora and fauna including big cats and many other mammals and over 400 bird species, game drives are true voyages of discovery rarely seeing other vehicles at sightings. The addition of the new spa has added an extra dimension of pampering and relaxation, as does the beautiful eco-friendly swimming pool. There’s wifi in the main lodge, and the excellent chef provides a succession of delicious meals and snacks, finishing off each day with drinks around the campfire under the stars.
Bush luxury and genuine hospitality make Elephant’s Eye a top choice for a Zimbabwe safari destination.
