Hidden in a large private concession in the northern section of Hwange, Nehimba Lodge sits on the edge of two ecotone regions. With this great diversity in habitats right on your doorstep - explore the Kalahari Sandveld that dominates the south or take advantage of the seemingly endless Mopani forests spreading across the north of the National Park. This area is raw Africa, with large populations of elephant and buffalo. Plains game are plentiful with their accompanying predators following close behind. Lion, leopard, painted hunting dog (Wild Dog) and hyena all complete in the ultimate test of survival.

Nehimba Lodge is only a 3.5 hour drive from Victoria Falls, with the majority of this drive being through the National Park. Making it very accessible to self-drive guests or via transfer to one of the National Parks gates where you will be met by a Nehimba vehicle which will then drive you into camp.

Seven spacious thatched rooms, include a honeymoon suite and two family units. All are raised on wooden decks giving them a commanding view over an ever busy waterhole in front of the camp. A great diversity of fauna, both small and large are attracted to this water source as part of their daily route. Each of the rooms boast an en-suite bathroom, out-door shower and their own private balcony. The raised main area is tastefully decorated, and the swimming pool allows at least some relief from the African heat.

Nehimba is located in the heart of it's own large private concession in the centre of Hwange National Park. Explore the diversity this area offers with one of the camp's professional guides by game-drive vehicle or on foot for a more in-depth experience of the wonderful game park. Night-drives finish off the day and bring in a whole new array of nocturnal species.

Our Opinion

Nehimba Lodge is part of the Imvelo group which includes Bomani in south Hwange and Gorges lodge in Victoria Falls, which are 2 of our favourite places. The group maintains high standards and Nehimba is no exception. It is in a great private wildlife concession surrounded by national park ensuring your safari experience will be first class. Consistent excellent reviews demonstrate what a good camp this is in all aspects.

Access from Victoria Falls is relatively quick and easy by road transfer therefore reducing the cost of air charters. Pay for 2 / Stay for 3 specials during 2016 make this camp the best value camp by far - especially in the high season and packaged together with one of their sister camps makes a truly excellent safari holiday combination.


The varying seasons in Hwange will have a huge impact on your wallet and Safari experience.

The Green season (rainy season) will see incredible bird and insect life but reduced animal sightings. However lodge prices in most cases are dramatically reduced offering really good value.

The High season (dry season) is when animals congregate in vast numbers around the waterholes and National Geographic type scenes are commonplace. This is peak season and lodge prices escalate substantially.

Please feel free to contact us with details of your preferences and allow us the opportunity to discuss which time of year is going to suit you best.

**NB** Hwange Lodges in the peak season get over booked, it is advisable to plan and book well in advance to ensure you get what you want.

Client Testimonials

by Kate (Zimbabwe)
Many thanks for all your assistance. You have probably been the most responsive and helpful tour organizers I have worked with- anywhere in the world. I'll be sure to recommend you to my colleagues and friends.

All the activities lived up to the hype!
by Alex (Swaziland)
Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Memory I will not forget
by Sunitha (22.5.13)
Hi Jane
Hope you are keeping well.I must say a very big thank you for all your assistance and advice for my trip. I had the most amazing time at Vic Falls, a memory I will not forget.
Thanks a million once again.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
