Nehimba Lodge is an authentic safari lodge remotely located in a 43,500-acre private concession in the renowned Hwange National Park.  Ideally situated in a wildlife rich area of the park, the lodge is positioned around a large waterhole where wildlife come to drink and the pool in front of the decking area welcomes elephants who come to quench their thirst, offering guests an authentic and immersive wildlife experience.

The main focus of the lodge is around the waterhole, with the guest areas and dining areas overlooking this area.  The 9 individual raised chalets with private balcony offer an un-obscured view of the waterhole and its thirsty visitors.

Wildlife viewing is the primary focus at Nehimba Lodge, providing guests with fantastic opportunities, especially for viewing Elephants in their natural and wild habitat.  As well as these magnificent animals, lion, leopard, buffalo and hyena wander freely through the area.

A stay at Nehimba Lodge offers an exceptional safari experience.

Imvelo Safari Lodges, who own and manage Nehimba Camp, 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.
