This luxurious tented lodge is situated in a private concession on the edge of the magnificent Ngamo Plain, in the remote and unspoilt south eastern corner of Hwange National Park. Bomani is famous for its unique scenery as well as its large herds of elephants and all other animals and birdlife resident in Hwange.

Our main lodge overlooks Bomani pan and comprises of an open dining room, bar area and lounge, built on a spectacular viewing platform. You can enjoy your breakfast whilst watching zebra and wildebeest quietly graze, or sip a sundowner as giraffe and elephant soak up the days final rays.
During the chilly winter evenings, our open fireplaces keep the room warm and cosy. You can even snuggle up under a blanket around the outdoor fire pit and enjoy a glass of red wine with canapés, whilst listening to the sounds of the African bush.
Bomani is an intimate and exclusive destination. We have nine large luxury tents and one sumptuous thatched bungalow.
Five of our Serengeti tents roost upon spacious Zambezi teak platforms, which at five foot above ground level, offer stunning views across the open grasslands. The other four, along with the bungalow, are at ground level and a little closer to nature. Their verandas are the perfect spot for early morning coffee or a nightcap under the stars.
Every tent is elegantly furnished and comfortable, each with a private en-suite bathroom, hot running water and electricity. Your private canvas sanctuary is incredibly secure and designed to keep out all creatures great and small. And although its equipped to deal with all weathers, during the cooler months well pop a hot water bottle in your bed to ensure youre kept snug.
Game activities in the area include drives, walks and night drives conducted by fully licensed professional guides. Hwange National Park at 14,500 sq km, is one of Africas great Parks and is home to over 100 species of mammals, including nineteen large herbivore and eight large carnivore species, and nearly 400 species of birds. Hwange is elephant country and much of the game viewing relates to magnificent opportunities to view these, the largest land mammals, in a completely wild state.

Community & Conservation projects
Our lodges are built on the borders of National Parks on land that belongs to local village communities. Why does this help? Firstly the environmental footprint has less impact on the park and secondly it allows the work to intrinsically link with the local communities. Guests who stay at these unique, owner-run lodges enjoy incomparable wildlife and photographic safaris with fully qualified and highly experienced guides, guided game walks, bird watching, spectacular views and surroundings, adrenaline packed activities, luxurious accommodation, and thoughtful, friendly and attentive staff.
We believe in giving back to the local communities and are involved in a number of community outreach programs including constructing schools, installing wells to supply domestic water and providing free dental care to hundreds of locals who live near their lodges. On visiting the lodges guests are encouraged to visit the nearby villages and schools to interact with the locals and see the extent of their impact on the local communities. Imvelo also conduct a range of conservation programmes directly aimed at improving and assisting wildlife, such as anti-poaching patrols, fire protection and the raptor protection and education programme.
