Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

With just nine secluded suites, Ivory Lodge is a small safari lodge by any standards in a private concession bordering the renowned Hwange National Park. Service is personal and the managers and staff offer a genuine welcome and warm hospitality that goes beyond any star grading.

Your room is elephant-high above the ground. Built into a grove of teak trees, your private balcony looks out over a waterhole frequented by elephants and the great game of this enormous game reserve. Most activity in the wild happens at night and the floodlit waterhole reveals the stealthy comings and goings of elephants out for a midnight sup and lions stopping in for drink en route to a hunt.

The swimming pool is an essential item in this parched part of the country and the cool living areas and open firepit (perfect for lying back and enjoying the incredible starlit sky) create a mood of cool relaxation in the middle of the African bush.

And in the middle of the African bush you certainly are. Covering an area the size of Wales, Hwange National Park is one of Africa's great game reserves. Famous for its huge herds of elephant, all the big game is also found here including lion, rhino, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a host of antelope species. Unlike many parks, bush walks and evening game drives are allowed and these two safari activities make Hwange a special game reserve indeed.
