"Bomani ticks the boxes for affordability and privacy in Hwange. Located within its own concession, it offers diverse activities and great Big Five game viewing. It's well worth taking the 'Elephant Express' tram from Vic Falls to the reserve for a unique travel day!"


Bomani is a great option for travelers hoping to get off the well-worn tourist trail and to become acquainted with the remoter parts of Hwange. We applaud Imvelo’s conservation and social investments, which make for a very ethical approach to tourism!


The lodge is located within a private concession in the east of Hwange National Park, on the edge of Bomani Pan and close to the Ngamo Plains.


Bomani’s communal facilities are housed in an A-framed open-fronted thatched structure. This is slightly raised above ground level, presenting superb panoramic views of the surrounding pan and a busy waterhole. All areas have an overhead fan – the lounge has an open fireplace too, for wintry evenings. The dining area has a long table for communal meals and there is a full bar. There is also a viewing deck, leading down to an outdoor fire-pit.

The guest accommodation at Bomani comprises of five Saddlebill tents and one Sable Suite (family unit), which are raised above the ground on wooden decks that overlook the Ngamo Plain. They also include four Spurwing Suites and one thatched family bungalow that are at ground level and overlook the lodge's waterhole. All rooms have an overhead or standing fan, but the family bungalow has air conditioning too – along with satellite TV on request, lounge, changing room and mini bar! The tents benefit from private decks and all options have en-suite facilities – shower, basin and toilet come as standard. All interiors are stylish and comfortable.

*For families with children under the age of 6 years, we always request a ground floor tented room for safety reasons. If you stay here with us, please ensure this is what you are given.*


Bomani offers a good selection of activities, making the most of its location.

  • Game drives during the day are possible both within the private concession and in Hwange. Frequently guests see all Big Five animals here (though please note it is very rare to see rhino), in addition to zebra, antelope, cheetah, hippo, and many more! The birdlife is also impressive. At night, guests have free rein of the concession and it is not uncommon to spot such species as hyena, pangolin, porcupine, mongoose.
  • Walking safaris are equally exciting and another popular activity is ‘Pump Runs’, where guests head out with a guide to visit the 19 waterholes in the park that are operated by Imvelo. These visits involve dropping off fuel and oil for the motors and supplies for the pump attendants, then having a picnic lunch near one of the waterholes.
  • Finally, Bomani is happy to organize school tours and village visits, providing opportunities for guests to learn about the local area just 15 minutes from the lodge! This is well worth doing if you have the time.
  • Imvelo’s interest in giving back to the local area is also shown in its employment of local people. The guides here know Hwange really well and service overall is welcoming and friendly. Guests appreciate the lack of rigidity in planning the day (and night) ahead, while the lodge is pleased to arrange private dining whenever it suits.

*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
