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....

I stayed on the all inclusive package which is quite reasonable and includes all meals, beer, wine, soft drinks and morning and afternoon game drives. Lots of animal sightings including some lions and painter dogs. The chef David makes a special effort with the vegetarian food and I enjoyed his daily presentation of dinner. I spent the first two nights... More

Coming from Bulawayo i arrived late in the evening. After a great dinner and a warm welcome by the friendly staff they showed me my tree house. It looks beautiful with a balcony and a great view on a small pond just in front of my house. The animals are very close for the only border between the lodge and... More

The chalets , guest suites overlook a waterhole which is nice. Late night we had the visit of two elephants which was impressive. The set up of the guest suites is a bit amateur like and does not compare with other tree houses we stayed at in our African trip. Lunch and dinner is served and is not bad ,... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the beginning of May. We stayed in the standard thatched chalets which were very nice and comfortable. The staff at Miombo are the greatest! David is a brilliant chef and catered wonderfully for the only vegetarian there (thank you David!); Bongani is the man that you'll want to take you on the game drives:... More

We stayed at Miombo for three days in June 2014. It was a highlight of our four weeks in Southern Africa. All of the staff including Clementine and Mr. B were super hospitable And made us feel right at home. We did two game drives which were great fun, but even more special was having dinner interrupted by a family... More
