With Hwange being one of the most impressive national parks in Africa, the Lodge has a unique place at it's doorstep. Jaimie, the hostess of the lodge is lovely and taking good care of everyone! The food is very good and the open rooms with the direct outlook onto the waterhole is an experience one will never forget!

Actually we stayed in Ivory Lodge campsite (tuskers) and it was very nice. It's a small campsite (4 places) with no fences and elephants passing by to reach the lodge's waterhole. They are good facilities, hot showers in a safari tent, a big fridge and of course braai, table and chairs. We could use the lodge's hide to spot the... More

I'm not entirely sure it was a coincidence that a herd of elephants arrived at the watering hole 15 minutes after we arrived at this charming hotel! I can't say enough good things about my stay here. From the food, to the wine, to the drinks around the fire pit at night! It was splendid! I could see the watering... More

Staying here was like staying with friends. Except that I don't have many friends where elephants and giraffes come by sipping from the lake every night. The lodges are great, food is wonderful and the view is amazing. Special mention goes to Dardley, an expert wildlife guide who knows more facts about nature then any guide I've met before. It's...

I have been to Ivory a few times and I really do highly recommend it to visitors. The setup of the lodge and chalets creates a wonderful atmosphere and it really is a great place to relax for a few days. Activities at Ivory Lodge includes game drives, walking safaris, bird watching or simply relaxing by the swimming pool. Game... More

We took my parents on their first 'Africa' trip, also travelling with our 3 young children. Ivory Lodge was everything and more we could ask for. Staff was fantastic and they could not do enough for you, they were brilliant with the kids too. It was my dad's birthday and they presented him with a cake at dinner, even the... More
