"Ivory Lodge, Hwange"
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." See all these reviews: 10n in Zimbabwe
"Ivory Lodge review"
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." See all these reviews: 11n in Zimbabwe; 6n in Malawi; 1n in Zambia
