Elephant Eye is one of the most sublime safari camps in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.
Elephant’s Eye Tented Camp in Hwange is undoubtedly one of the most sublime Hwange safari camps and Zimbabwe safari lodges. Situated on a private concession bordering the famed Hwange National Park, this elegant eco-lodge presents unparalleled birding and game-viewing with wildlife, and in particular elephants, free to roam the area in large numbers, and the African wild dog. Tented thatched chalets built on stilts and overlooking a waterhole, ensure an unforgettable time in the Zimbabwe wilderness. This all-inclusive safari in Hwange strikes the perfect balance between style and comfort, while at the same time opening up the natural world for exploration and discovery.
A short 20-minute flight from Victoria Falls or a 3 hour and 30 minutes road transfer brings you to Elephant’s Eye. The camps location, enables guests to combine the thrill of visiting Zimbabwe’s largest national park with the added benefit of exclusive night-time game drives and guided safari walks in a private conservancy.
The beauty of the eight private tented chalets is that they have been designed to almost completely blend into their natural environment whilst still offering uninterrupted panoramic views of the watering hole below and the surrounding African bush.
Each chalet, screened by indigenous trees for exclusive privacy, includes a spacious bedroom, fireplace, outdoor shower, wrap-around viewing deck and an en-suite bathroom. The comfortable interiors are contemporary with an African touch striking the perfect balance between luxury and functionality.
The best time to visit Hwange National Park is from April to November
Aim for the cooler, dry season between July and October for an optimum safari experience as waterholes attract a great variety of animals and the bush thins out well to ensure great wildlife viewing. For those with a special interest in birds, the best time to visit Hwange is between April and November when the wet summer months attract a host of migratory species.
A Big Five safari in Hwange, led by experienced guides, will guarantee the most memorable encounters while guided walks will allow you to track wildlife through the pristine African bush, seeing often overlooked flora and fauna. You might even spot the large monitor lizard. Observe the natural world from a completely different vantage point while on a horseback safari or turn binoculars upwards on a bird-watching excursion.
A swimming pool and our eco-spa welcome you to take the time to indulge and relax. In the evenings enjoy exciting night-time game drives, romantic sundowners at breath-taking viewpoints, or take the opportunity to sleep under the stars at our secluded open-air star bed next to a waterhole. For an inspiring encounter, join the Community Upliftment Experience and cultural village tour.
