Bordering Botswana, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest game park with an area of 14,600km². Its sheer size means that its scenery, vegetation, and game vary hugely, ranging from the semi-desert scrub on the edge of the Kalahari in the south to forests, granite hills, and valleys of mopane woodlands in the north.
Robins Camp, now under private new management, offers an exciting revival of the iconic safari destination in Hwange National Park. Robins Camp is situated in the rugged northern Basalt area of the park, an area rich in natural water with seeps and springs dotting the area. It is the home to some of the last great buffalo herds in Africa, with herds of over 2000 still seen.
Jozibanini Camp is situated in the remote south west of Hwange National Park in a wilderness unused for nearly 20 years; only the wildlife and the Parks rangers who look after it frequent this area, once roamed by San people. This is a small, truly exclusive camp in a truly wild place, providing a unique, untamed wilderness experience.
From its remote location close to the quiet south-eastern corner of the park, the lodge offers exclusive game viewing within its own private concession, as well as easy access to some of the best game-viewing areas in the park itself.
Deep inside a private concession, nestled inside the remote northern region of Hwange National Park, hides Nehimba Lodge. By combining luxury living with ultimate elegance and lashings of African charm, this Lodge is designed to create the most exceptional safari experiences. Our Main guest area and 9 spacious guest accommodations are thatched tents built on teak decks, overlooking the magnificent lodge pan – a favoured spot frequented by a variety of wildlife and large numbers of elephants, particularly in the dry season.
Hidden in a forest of mature camelthorn trees, which soon gives way to open plains and a network of waterholes, Camelthorn Lodge is well situated for game viewing. It is set in a private concession outside the extreme south-east corner of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, just a ten-minute drive from its own private gate into the park.
Verney’s is a private concession area in a typically un-used part of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. It is a beautiful amphitheater fringed by teak forest that opens up onto an impressive waterhole that is a playground to the famous elephant herds of Hwange. Verney’s joined the Machaba Safaris group in 2017 with a totally clean piece of unspoilt wilderness.
Verney’s Camp is being built in keeping with Machaba Safaris’ winning recipe that matches the timeless wonder of a classic safari to Africa, aimed at the affordable luxury travel markets worldwide for both the novice and the well seasoned safari traveller.
