Nehimba was everything of our dreams and more. We stayed here as a family of 10 and LOVED every single second of it. The staff is unmatched in their ability to attend to every little detail and make you feel as though you are a member of their family. The location is unmatched by any safari lodge in the area (Zimbabwe or Botswana), we constantly remarked at how much we felt that we were really living as one with the animals in their native habitat, and yet the expert guides never allowed us to feel unsafe or in danger. The accommodations, food, and service are superb--every meal was a delight and every little "surprise" (they love surprises at Nehimba) that Sarah and her staff created for us was a complete and utter delight. We all shed a few tears at the end of our stay and throughout the rest of our trip we constantly longed to rewind and return to Nehimba.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 7 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. No two days are the same at Nehimba and game viewing experiences are tailor-made to our guest’s preferences, including game drives, walking safaris and night game drives on our private concession in search of nocturnal species of wildlife. Whether you choose to track a herd of elephant on foot with your highly trained guide at dawn or spend the afternoon relaxing overlooking the waterhole on the deck by the pool, this wild and unspoilt bush paradise will guarantee you leave with memories to last a lifetime! ... more less
