Camelthorn Lodge

Camelthorn Lodge, the latest addition to the Imvelo Safari Lodges family, is the most luxurious and exclusive lodge to date. They have chosen to build this flagship camp in one of Hwange’s last remaining corners of well-protected and un-spoilt woodlands. Camelthorn Lodge is deep in amongst the Camelthorn and ebony trees. The stunning new lodge offers huge glass fronts, overlooking small watering holes and birdfeeders that will attract some of the smaller and less destructive woodland creatures.

    Dining

    At the centre of the lodge is a 35 metre spread camelthorn acacia, framed on two sides by the main lodge. Under that tree guests will be treated to breakfasts, brunches and lunches, and candlelit dinners under the huge tree dotted with lanterns. There is also an indoor dining and sitting room with fireplaces or guests can enjoy private dining in their villa.

    Activities

    Enjoy many activities including game drives, game walks, school/village visits, and an underground blind. The underground blind is strategically positioned in the shade of a Leadwood tree, disguised as an antheap and aligned to take advantage of both the sunsets and the evening light at elephant toe level. This blind will have novices taking National Geographic pictures. The lodge is perfectly positioned to view the herds of Elephant and other wildlife moving within the National park. There is also a small plunge pool to cool off in.
