Nestled within a 5,000 acre private reserve within the Ngamo Forest Area, on the edge of the south eastern corner of Hwange National Park, you will find Bomani Tented Lodge.  This safari lodge offers guests an unrivalled safari experience with impressive year-round wildlife viewing and a great diversity of wildlife in substantial numbers, where highly experienced knowledgeable guides will treat you to a safari experience you will never forget.

This relaxed tented lodge is designed in a traditional safari style with a main common area with lounge, bar and dining area.  A wooden decking area overlooks a waterhole, where wildlife come to drink.  A splash pool set in a raised deck offers a refreshing welcome to the heat of the day and in-house spa treatments are available on request at an extra cost.

Guests have the opportunity to design their days, there is no set agenda here, game drives, guided walks, trips into Hwange National Park are all arranged during your stay or simply take time in camp to unwind and view the wildlife that comes to the waterhole.

Imvelo Safari Lodges, who own and manage Bomani Tented Lodge, are dedicated to providing safaris with purpose and passion and are working to empower local communities and promote environmental sustainability.  This includes the employment of over 100 local people, school and education improvement, fresh water supplies and mobile health clinics. In addition to the numerous benefits and inputs they direct into the communities, they operate a range of programmes specifically aimed at improving and assisting  wildlife and land.
