We stayed for 3 nights here and went all inclusive so we could go on all the game drives. Our first night one of our couples stayed in the honeymoon suite. Wow, how lovely and luxurious. However We swapped to be closer to our friends for day 2 and 3 and stayed in the very rustic raised rooms. Although this was like sleeping in the shed or the treehouse at the bottom of our garden the views from the balcony over the waterhole were the best. Think we probably frightened off most animals with our giggling after dinner and wine !! The waterhole pump had broken and needed replacing which probably stopped animals visiting as it was just mud, but we did get up close with a pair of buffalo every night and a visit by a lone elephant and kudu. The small camp was very friendly and it was easy to meet other guests who came from US and UK. The camp was a bit far from Hwange main camp so each morning and evening there was a 30 min drive before you entered the park but we still saw animals outside including the excellent spotting one morning of a male lion. Well done Shadrack our guide for that one.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Miombo Safari Camp has the distinction of being the closest quality accommodation to Hwange National Park Main Gate & is located in the DETE annex, on a private concession within the eastern border of the Hwange National Park. Having undergone a total transformation we have four brand new boutique raised above ground level platforms that are 75sqm, atop of which are exquisite luxury 55sqm safari suites, configured to accommodate two guests in a queen sized double or twin-bed configuration. Each of these guest suites has a main bedroom, with a wardrobe & storage space for clothes & footwear, a private en-suite bathroom with twin ´His & Hers` basins, ample hot & cold running water on demand, an interior private shower & separate private toilet. We also have two standard tree houses. These accommodation units are rustic & not of the same standard as the new platform units. Instead they cater to safari lovers who may have been to Miombo Safari Camp prior to its transformation, or folks who are seeking a slightly less luxury & more `rustic` bush accommodation. In addition to the raised platform guest suites there are four classic ground level thatched roof rondavels, each one accommodating two guests, with bedroom, wardrobe, private bathroom & shower. ... more less
