Imvelo Little Gorges is also a concession camp, meaning the land is leased from the local communities and they also benefit from royalties and employment.  You can feel the welcomes and difference.

After a hearty breakfast watching the sun rise over the Gorge from your luxury tent the Imvelo team will transfer you to the majestic Victoria Falls.

The Zimbabwe side is the best side to visit as you get to walk and experience almost the entire 1.7km length and witness the mighty Zambesi plunge through numerous gaps almost 100 metres below you.  You get the feeling of what it must of been like for Dr Livingstone when he first past eyes on this wonder.

Day 4 - Imbelo Bomani Hwange NP via Elephant Express Transfer

Butch and the Imvelo Team make sure every camp is a different experience.  In line with that philosophy and his “can do” innovative spirit Butch built a tramcar called the Elephant Express which rides the Zimbabwe National Railroad to your next camp.

In the afternoon you will arrive at Imvelo Bomani tented lodge which again is on community concession land but right in the middle of Safari land.  This camp is more authentic and isolated.  You feel a part of nature and even thought it’s glamping you know you are camping in the wild.

Dinner and then drinks around the fire pit makes all the worries of the world float away.

Day 5 - Imvelo Bomani and Safari Hwange National Park

After a breakfast around the fire, spend the rest of the day exploring the incredible Hwange National Park.

Home to huge numbers of animal and bird species it’s particularly good for Elephants and Giraffes, but you are more than likely to spot Lions, Wildebeest, Jackals, Zebra, Impala, tremendous birding and much much more.

Butch and his team of expert guides spread out around Hwange National Park and the neighboring concession area and keep each other informed so if there’s any action nearby you have the best possible chance to capture it.

For those who like a really hands on experience, you can take a pump run with a Bomani guides.  Imvelo is responsible for 8 waterholes and the and their attendants need servicing.  You can even experience photography from a “HIDE (sunken bunker)” at one of the waterholes and a sundowner experience on the way back to camp.

Imvelo Nehimba has a huge waterhole 100 metres from camp, but the local elephants have learnt that the water is cleaner in the pool at the main lodge and each night like giant ghosts out of the dark emerge to drink from the pool just metres from where you will be having dinner.  It’s one of the great wildlife encounters in Africa.

Day 7 - Imvelo Nehimba Safari Hwange National Park

Safari with Imvelo’s expert guides and why not take a morning walking safari or relax on your veranda as you watch the animals sip from the nearby waterhole.
