*Seasonal Camp - closed 1 December 2018 - 28 February 2019 Deep inside a private concession, nestled inside the remote northern region of Hwange National Park, hides Nehimba Lodge. By combining luxury living with ultimate elegance and lashings of African charm, this Lodge is designed to create the most exceptional safari experiences. Our Main guest area and spacious guest accommodations are thatched tents built on teak decks, overlooking the magnificent lodge pan – a favoured spot frequented by a variety of wildlife and large numbers of elephants, particularly in the dry season. Nehimba sits firmly on the edge of the mopane woodlands associated with the north of the park and the kalahari sandveld of the south and west. All the diversity of Hwange's fauna and flora is within easy reach.

The guides and people were great, but the lodge property is too dense to see any animals. The jeep rides show dense covered brush so you really can't see. Although you do see lots of elephants at the meals, I would not recommend the long drive to this lodge. We just didn't see

Hi Casey C Thank you for taking the time to write this review and your feedback which has been taken on board to improve our guests stay and experience with us! We are saddened to hear that during your stay you didn’t see a variety of wildlife, we are on a huge private concession and such the game roam freely and so it can be unpredictable. Nehimba is renowned for great game viewing and so we are sorry you did not get to experience this, although it’s good to know that you had a lot of elephant at the waterhole at dinner times. Here at Imvelo we take a lot of pride in our service and the hospitality we offer our guests - so we are thankful for all you had to share with us! From all of us at Imvelo we wish you all the best.

My fiancé and I stayed here as our last stop on our Imvelo safari tour. The place cannot honestly be described. It was surreal. We experienced that which every other person has, amazing wildlife, service and of course the elephants. This is and should always be considered a

Hi DBGM18 Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough and touching review - we really appreciate it along with the 5 stars! You are right, you cannot beat the elephant experience in camp in and all the wildlife that come to drink right from the lodge waterhole. What a wonderful adventure seeing leopard, cheetah and lions every day! We pride ourselves on our level of guiding at all our Imvelo camps, so I’m so pleased you had a fantastic experience, and Ty, Brendan and Mike will be thrilled with the feedback. I will pass on your excellent comments to all our team at camp who love nothing more than spoiling our valued guests and sharing this piece of paradise in Hwange National Park. We hope to welcome you again one day again, but until then, thank you for choosing Nehimba for your safari. All the best from the whole Imvelo team!

This was our 2nd visit to Nehimba - and we weren't disappointed. The chalets have been upgraded a little - and now have a small electric fence to try and stop the elephants from pulling down the showers when water is short. The elephants didn't disappoint and visited on each
