We had a really lovely stay at Ivory Lodge. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, the cabins comfortable and my sons loved the pool. We spent an entire afternoon/evening at the hide just a hundred metres from our cabin and saw loads and loads of elephants closer than you can imagine and almost felt part of the herd! I... More

Wonderful lodge. Very pretty, with an incredible, comfortable elephant hide in the grounds. Sit with a cold beer or a G&T and watch 100 elephants 2 metres away from your glass! Lovely camp site, just outside the Lodge gate, a 50m walk to the great bar. Campsite has its own viewing platform. Elephant, giraffe, buck etc wander through / past... More

Ivory Lodge was one of the most peaceful stays we had during a trip around Zimbabwe. The views from the chalets on stilts and from the hide by the watering hole really make yo feel like you're in the bush, and the private game drives around the concession or national park are even better! The staff are so amazingly friendly... More

Our birding group stayed at some nice places in southern Africa but this was the best. The cabins overlooking the waterhole were comfortable and afforded terrific opportunities to view elephants, antelopes, and birds who visited daily. The staff treated us like welcome friends rather than just customers. Game drives on the property and to nearby Hwange National Park were conducted... More

The lodge is in a beautiful setting, with all the rooms on stilts, looking out over the water hole. It becomes obsessive glancing down to see which animals are visiting. The hide is incredible, sitting within a couple of meters from the salt lick. We watched the elephants, we were completely invisible to them, so close. It was mesmerising. these... More

We brought a group of eight to Ivory Lodge and had a fantastic time. We spent one full day and another morning driving in Hwange and we had good sightings of lions on a buffalo carcass, a cheetah resting, giraffes drinking, and painted dogs romping along the roadside. The wildlife viewing on the private concession was a bit less exciting... More

Ivory Lodge...this is just so different, and so peaceful. We slept in Pole houses which were beside tall trees and the view to the waterhole was perfect.Many animals came in the evening to drink.We did Game drives with Sundowners, saw large herds of Elephants and other animals,including a Sable. At the Lodge Waterhole there is a very comfortable "hide' ,to... More
