Amazing staff, who catered to all needs. Simon who manages the lodges is always available for questions and joined us for dinner on our last night which was lovely. The game drives are very well done, and the supplied guides with a vast knowledge of the bush and wildlife. We were very fortunate to see a leopard in a tree WATCHING a cheetah who had just killed an impala which was an incredible sight! Lots of elephant and giraffes, along with their babies in tow. The only downside was when we called from Bulawayo to confirm our booking, and were told the lodges were full and they could not locate our booking, they then wanted to move us to Hwange Safari lodge which is not what we were looking forward to. After numerous called between the office, we found out the office we were dealing with was in Victoria Falls, and on arrival at Miombo they knew we were coming and turns out we were the ONLY booking for the two days we stayed there. Overall was an incredible experience and would definitely return to Miombo for a true African safari experience!
- 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
