We stayed at Miombo in the honeymoon suite. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, and make us feel at ease during our stay. The first night they had a local dance group perform after dinner, and it was an excellent experience. I would highly recommend Miombo! The affordable prices, excellent food, and wonderful staff are well... More

We had the Honey Moon Suite which was very luxurous and very nicely decorated. We even had a bath with view on the waterhole. A large porch with 2 chairs. The bed was large and comfortable. When we had dinner at the main building, the staff prepared our room and we found warm water bottles in the bed to keep... More

We stayed here for three nights in the honeymoon suite. The suite is very well equipped with a free standing bath, inside and outside shower and a great view at the waterhole. Staff is very friendly and during winter even put hot water bottles in your bed. The chef is young but surely knows what he is doing and serves... More

Miombo Safari Camp sits only a few kilometers from Hwange National Park, best known for its large elephant population but also home to numerous other species, including giraffe, kuda, water buffalo, lions, zebra, and the endangered painted dogs. The lodge and its management and staff are lovely. You can choose between a treehouse canvas tent with large screened "windows" that... More

We spent 2 nights in late February and had one of the elevated tents which was very comfortable. The food was great, even catering to a vegetarian. The camp is small in size but big on service and wildlife experience. Mr B, a very knowledgeable guide, found us lions, giraffe, a honey badger, elephants,wildebeest, several species of antelope, zebra, as... More

We had an excellent stay at Miombo and Hwange is a truly wild place. The camp is very small and secluded feeling with some activity at the waterhole each day. I image the camp is much more active during the busy season. While the thatched roof tree houses are quite charming, we found them to be a bit to "open"... More

We greatly enjoyed our 3 nights' stay here in an elevated tented suite. The service was exemplary from our arrival to our eventual departure. From the moment that Francie greeted us with G&T's we felt right at home. On the first night, we (and a group of young Scandinavian volunteers staying overnight in the lodge campground) were wonderfully entertained by... More

We had a brilliant time at this lodge. We stayed in the gorgeous tented tree house suites which were so luxurious! The food was also very good and the staff were excellent and extremely accommodating. Thank you Miombo for a delightful holiday :)

My sister and I stayed two nights and enjoyed everything! The raised tent with viewing deck was wonderful!! Food was good. Game drives were great but would have liked to have gone further into the park to see more. Recommend requesting an all day drive instead of a morning and evening drive. A great place to get away from it... More

After spending 4 nights camping in Hwange National Park, we headed to Miombi Safari Lodge. I think it is perfect. I have stayed at higher end camps in South Africa and paid 3 to 4 times as much, and although nice, maybe too nice. I kept thinking I could beam them to Florida and no one would be the wiser....
