This is an amazing venue with very helpful staff. The dining area being open air and overlooking the watering hole makes for fabulous views. The game drive we went on was a wildlife extravaganza and we saw all the animals we could. The guide was also fantastic.

Overall esthetic of the lodge was lovely. Rooms were well laid out within the building. Gorgeous view of the watering hole in the back. Wildlife can come right onto the property as we witnessed with an elephant. Nice beds but the room itself was cramped for two people. Small bathroom with very old fixtures. Food was average. Very highly priced... More

Hwange offered a range of game drives and bush walks; all of which we sampled.Perhaps the most thrilling moment was our first lion sighting which was only yards from the track down to the lodge.Our game wardens, Beche and Raymond , were well-informed and enthusiastic.Best of all was watching zebra and elephants from our room and an exciting bush dinner...

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at Hwange Safari Lodge. They offer attentive service and the staff is very switched on. the bush dinner was the highlight of my stay. My business associates (from South Africa) with whom i had travelled with shared my sentiments and said that they will recommend Hwange Safari Lodge to anyone travelling to Hwange. Keep it... More

I love the grounds at Hwange Safari Lodge. Tree studded lawns lead to an inviting swimming pool and a large waterhole beyond. There is a quiet viewing platform nearby where you can watch impala, kudu, or elephant come to drink. Tea is served at 4pm under a shady tree near the boma. All rooms overlook the grounds. From room 205... More

We stayed here for four nights and thought it was great. The lodge is set right in a watering hole with many animals day and night. You can watch them from your window or walk out to the fence and be very close. One evening we were lucky enough to have approximately 200 elephant cross the road in from of... More

I loved this lodge. We had excellent game drives, dinner by open fires and lion viewing from the hotel. It was easter sunday and they organised an easter egg hunt for my kids. It was also my daughters birthday and they baked a cake for her. Attentive service and excellent food.

We recently had a big group at HSL for the annual AHEAD-GLTFCA conference with the RP-PCP of Zimbabwe and it was a beautiful week! The setting is amazing with wildlife very close and a starry sky, only topped by the full moon... The service was, as usual in Zimbabwe, impeccable... We mostly had barbecue at night and a variety of... More

The lodge was a very nice place. The room had nice accommodations and the bed was very comfortable. They have a outpost that you can go and look out into the reserve to look at animals and it was a nice treat. The food was great. I even got to try a Kudo. It taste like beef. We stayed for... More

The only good thing about this place was the magnificient view over the water hole. The Hotel is run down and shabby. At times we felt like we were the only people in the Hotel. The room itself was ok, bathroom was very dated, poorly maintained and maids kept leaving the louvre windows open so we always came back to... More
