Hwange National Park at 14,500 sq km, is one of Africa’s great Parks and is home to over 100 species of mammals, including nineteen large herbivore and eight large carnivore species, and nearly 400 species of birds. Hwange is elephant country and much of the game viewing relates to magnificent opportunities to view these, the largest land mammals, in a completely wild state. The lodge estate is in an exclusive 5000 acre portion of Ngamo Forest adjacent to the Ngamo Gate into Hwange National park, 1.5 km from the lodge. Game activities into the park are within a vast exclusive and wild area of the park.
Activities in the park include morning and night game drives in open top Land Cruisers, game walks with trained guides that offer excellent photography opportunities and a chance to feel Africa under foot, visits to the hides at the watering hole for an up close sit with the wildlife passing through, and community and school visits that provide a real life look at village life in rural Matabeleland.
For an all day activity, and one of the highlights of Bomani, head off in the morning to help the guides drop off fuel, oil and rations to the attendants at the water pump operated by Imvelo Safari Lodges which fills 8 waterholes for the wildlife in this region of the National Park. The furthest of which is 55 km away. A picnic lunch is then enjoyed near one of the waterholes followed by a leisurely game drive back to lodge in the afternoon.
