Ivory Lodge, Hwange
Typical lodge, rooms with a good view of the water hole as well as an excellent hide.
Again the guide Steven was first class particularly in tracking. His knowledge of the birds and animals of the area was exemplary. We had an enjoyable trip to Hwange National Park adn well as to see the Painted Dogs.
However our view of the family of seven female lions and the magic moment of seeing appromimately 120 elephants arrived at Ivory Lodge water hole was magical. Thank you Steven.
Ivory Lodge review
We didn't plan this part of our trip as well as we should have. In order to see Hwange in all its wonder you have to be able to either stay in the park or plan to be in the park all day, for several days. The distances are great and ones experience will be limited if you don't give enough time to penetrate this vast park.
The "Painted Dog Conservation" center outside the park was a good place to learn about the wild dogs and their roll in the ecosystem. Very informative.
Ivory Lodge is a nice place, although the car camp which is attached is a bit noisy, and we understand that it is being expanded. It would keep us from going there again as it felt more like a public facility than we were hoping for.
The water hole at the camp was a treat.
