Hi jjcm Thank you for choosing to spend your special anniversary with us at Bomani and for the 5 star rating! “Phets” is very knowledgeable and passionate about the bush and its amazing wildlife. This is always a big positive when making sure his guests get the most out of their safari experience and I will be sure to pass on your comments to “Phets” and all our staff at Bomani –what unbelievable sightings you had on your safari, it brings us great joy to know that attention was paid to every detail. We take a lot of pride in the service we offer and after reading this, I am glad that we are achieving those high standards.

The staff and experience at Bomani Tented Lodge was exceptional. Big Boy and the rest of the staff welcomed us graciously. We travelled on the Elephant Express train and had to stop to allow giraffes to cross the tracks. We also got our first views of the vast savannas from

Hi k-zootravellers Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at Bomani Tented Lodge and giving us a 5 Star rating! Travelling on the Elephant Express is truly a unique way to transfer and experience the “giraffe rail block” along the way. How wonderful to hear you had such great game viewing too – especially from the underground blind which does allow such great close up encounters with the wildlife! I am sure all the staff in camp, especially Big Boy and Vusa will be happy to hear all the amazing things you have had to say. Vusa is very entertaining and knowledgeable about the bush and its wildlife, which is always a big positive when making sure his guests get the most out of their safari experience. Please come back and visit us at Imvelo one day again!

Excellent location, staff excellent also food. Our guide Mike was superb, as was our driver, whom we christened "Indiana" because of his leather hat. We were safe in his hands, despite the terrain in parts. It was wonderful getting up early (woken at 5.00.a.m with hot water for

Hi claudiaD4143XT Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Imvelo! Mike’s knowledge on wildlife and culture is truly phenomenal! The location on the Ngamo Plains is remote and unspoilt which makes it famous for its unique scenery, food and the hospitality too – we will be sure to pass on your comments to both Mike and “Indiana”. Thank you for your constructive criticism too, we have addressed the issues with the manager and are pleased to read that it did not dampen your stay with us. We hope you will return to make more memories with us! All the best from us at Imvelo.

Hi Casey C Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Bomani Tented Lodge. The Elephant Express is truly a unique way to transfer into camp whilst enjoying all the game, seeing a leopard is an unbelievable sighting. Whilst onboard the Elephant Express we do have a portable toilet for our guest to use! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the local school visit - here at Imvelo we are at the cutting edge of successful community-based conservation initiatives and aspire to keep connecting people with nature. We hope to welcome you again one day, All the best from all of us at Imvelo!

I am sure all the staff will be ecstatic to hear all the wonderful things you have had to say, especially about Eric and Phets and will be sure to ask them to do the “Amarula Dance”, they are very knowledgeable about the bush and its glorious wildlife, so thank you for the excellent comments on their guiding!
