After a very entertaining game viewing ride on the Elephant Express, with a nice lunch before start and animals (even lion) on the way, I arrived at Bomani and knew at once that this would be the place for me. The surrounding landscape is beautiful and peaceful, the main area and the tents inviting and homely. I had a spacious,...

Staying at Bomani Tented Lodge recently was the absolute highlight of my recent trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe! We received a very warm welcome from the team upon arrival and a consistently high level of service throughout our stay. The 'Elephant Express' transfer from Dete to the lodge was a novelty with a scrumptious lunch and drinks provided,...

Love this place and it's staff! The accommodations are excellent with a spacious area inside the tent-doesn't even feel like a tent--with tile floors, plenty of hot water, solar lights, porch and chairs to relax on, and a sitting area inside--very, very nice! And when it is cold outside your bed is warmed up with a hot water bottle! The...

We greatly enjoyed our 4 nights at Bomani Camp. Lying in our bed at night listening to the herd of buffalo, which had surrounded our tent, munching and grunting, was a thrill! The welcoming campfire at the end or each game drive was a delight. Don't pass up a trip to the nearby village. The people are amazing. Imvelo deserves...
