Our guide, Phets, the rest of the guide staff and Ann, the manager, made the experience an outstanding one. Phets was knowledgable of all aspects of the environment and very attentive to our needs. Brandon was with us two days and the two guides worked very well together--there was no "out competing" each other. They complemented each other which was...

From the moment we laid eyes on Nehimba's welcoming surroundings we knew we were in African bush paradise. The rooms with their romantic four poster nets, kidney shaped baths and private showers in the sunshine provided a perfect sanctuary if you wanted to get way from it all. But who would want to in any case? The main lounge dining...

Our overall favorite in Hwange--though all were great. Loved hearing the sounds of elephants and other animals during the night. Elevated "tents", outdoor shower, amazing food (accommodating vegetarians incredibly well), saw so many different species of game, with knowledgable, fun guides in Ty and Forest, and well managed by the stylish Anne. Beautiful sundowners, and loved how the lodge was...

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
