We stayed 3 nights at Ivory Lodge in early May 2015. Again this accommodation was booked in England through Imagine Africa and had been recommended to us by friends who live in Bulawayo. One of the plus points to this Lodge, is that it is easy to get to and does not involve a long trip into Hwange National Park.... More

My partner and I stayed at Ivory Lodge for two nights. Great accommodation, food was nicely presented and delicious. Enjoyed the stories around the dinner table and fire pit with Joel and Colin, good hosts and the ever smiling barman kept our glasses full. Loved lying on our bed watching the animals down at the waterhole, all in all a... More

There isn't anything that they don't offer. You suite is behind heavy double doors. There is a walkway deviding the living room and bedroom. There are ample snacks in the living room cabinets and quite a bit of comfortable setting I'm the living room. You walk across the outdoor hall to your lovely, modern bedroom with a greeting spelled out... More

I've stayed here several times and use it partly for relaxing with friends and partly as a base for my wildlife photography trips. The waterhole is well placed and sitting in the hide may get you to within a couple of metres of the elephants digging up the soil outside for the salt within it. Very useful stop-over between Victoria... More

We stayed there for a few days, stopped counting when we hat more than 100 elephants at the waterhole. Hospitality is great, even if you are "only camping people". Campsite: ablutions very clean, showers very good, firewood provided, we will come back for sure!

This was my son's very first bush experience and he was expecting a dome tent and sleeping bags with barbecue dinners around a fireplace. He was pleasantly surprised. The lodge has comfortable accommodation in wooden chalets on stilts, overlooking a waterhole. The lodges have basic furnishings, tea & coffee making facilities, shower and toilet. There are no safes in the... More
