Elephant's Eye

Elephant's Eye

Hwange National Park

Elephant's Eye Location Map

Situated on a large wildlife-rich private concession and 13 km from the entrance to Hwange National Park, Elephant’s Eye offers an unforgettable safari experience within the African wilderness.

As well as being Zimbabwe’s largest national park, Hwange is home to a large elephant population that is estimated to be around 45,000, and with some matriarchal groups numbering up to 350. It is also one of the last sanctuaries for African wild dogs.

Explore the Park and this private concession in open safari vehicles on game drives either lasting a full day, half day or in the evening for some nocturnal game viewing. The concession shares an unfenced border with Hwange, therefore allowing animals to roam freely between the 2 areas.

For a completely different perspective, take part in a 3 hour walking safari and discover a vast array of smaller flora and fauna, which are often overlooked on game drives. Walking safaris give you the chance to truly immerse yourself in nature, and see firsthand all that this incredible region has to offer.

The camp comprises of 8 tented chalets. Every chalet has double or twin beds surrounded by mosquito netting, an en-suite bathroom with a bath and basin, outside shower and wrap-around veranda overlooking a waterhole. The comfortable interiors are contemporary with an African touch striking the perfect balance between luxury and functionality. In addition, a built-in fireplace in each room ensures for warm and cozy nights during the winter.

There is also a sleep-out deck called 'The Eye’, which offers guests the opportunity to sleep under a starlit African sky in exclusive privacy. Guests will be escorted at sunset to the deck for sundowners, before being left to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding bushveld as the sun sets on another day. The deck is on 2 levels, with a bathroom underneath and a luxurious queensized bed, covered with a mosquito net, up top providing the most amazing views of the waterhole and surrounding bush.

The swimming pool and eco spa are the perfect spots to relax and indulge in a variety of luxurious treatments. In the evenings, experience romantic sundowners at breath-taking viewpoints, followed by a boma dinner lit by lanterns and a roaring fire.
