Ivory Lodge is situated in the Sikumi Forest Reserve, a strip of protected land sandwiched between the main Vic Falls / Bulawayo road, and Hwange National Park. It’s probably the easiest to access by road of all of Hwange’s safari lodges. Ivory is a relatively small lodge, standing next to a large waterhole that, in season, attracts elephants in their hundreds. While this is a significant draw, the lodge focuses most of its activities on 4WD game drives into the nearby Hwange National Park.
Our view of Ivory Lodge
Ivory Lodge makes a good stop between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls – and would make a convenient camp for settling into the bush after a long-haul flight. It can also be used as a safari destination in its own right, as a base for game viewing in Hwange, and it’s relatively inexpensive. However, if your budget is more flexible then we would suggest one of the better locations for game viewing in the more central areas of the park.
