Discover the Magic of Zimbabwe with Our Premium Lodges and Camps
Nehimba Safari Lodge is an authentic safari lodge, remotely nestled away in one of the largest private concessions in the renowned Hwange National Park. Ideally situated in the central game-rich section of the park, it offers an all-inclusive, immersive wildlife experience.
Centrally situated is the spacious lounge/dining area comprising a lower deck for intimate and romantic meals under the stars, overlooking a swimming pool frequented by elephants trying to quench their thirst. Evenings can be spent around a warm fire where tales of the day’s events are unraveled while the chef prepares a tasteful array of dishes.
The lodge boasts nine luxurious raised chalets under traditional thatch, unobtrusively positioned around a waterhole. Each chalet has its own en-suite slipper bath and adjoining outside shower.
The rooms are designed to be spacious, airy, intimate, and safe. Each chalet has its own private balcony that allows an unobscured view of the waterhole and its thirsty visitors. Experience the true essence of a safari at Nehimba Safari Lodge.
Deep inside a private concession, nestled inside the remote northern region of Hwange National Park, hides Nehimba Safari Lodge. By combining luxury living with ultimate elegance and lashings of African charm, this lodge is designed to create the most exceptional safari experiences.
Our main guest area and 9 spacious guest accommodations are thatched tents built on teak decks, overlooking the magnificent lodge pan – a favored spot frequented by a variety of wildlife and large numbers of elephants, particularly in the dry season.
Nehimba Safari Lodge sits firmly on the edge of the mopane woodlands associated with the north of the park and the Kalahari sandveld of the south and west. All the diversity of Hwange’s fauna and flora is within easy reach. No two days are the same at Nehimba Safari Lodge, and game viewing experiences are tailor-made to our guests’ preferences, including game drives, walking safaris, and night game drives on our private concession in search of nocturnal species of wildlife.

Nehimba is situated on its own private concession in the Northern area of the national park where many of Hwange’s wild residents enjoy wandering freely through the area. You may choose to relax on your private balcony with an early morning cup of coffee, or whittle away the last of the daylight hours on the main lodge deck with sundowners, where the animals amble by and pause at the nearby waterhole to quench their thirst. We highly recommend one day having an arm chair safari
Nehimba is situated right on the edge of the mopane woodlands of northern Hwange and the kalahari sandveld of the west, and so offers the full spectrum and diversity of fauna that Hwange has to offer. The elephant hunting Lions of this area are famous. The area is well watered so is host to large numbers of animals throughout the year but particularly during the dry season.
Game drives are conducted in specially modified Land rovers designed to provide wildlife enthusiasts with ideal opportunities for photography. During drives, our expert guides enjoy sharing their extensive knowledge with you – be it while watching the African bush come to life as the sun starts to rise, or whilst marvelling at a large elephant herd drinking at a waterhole as the sun slips behind the horizon.
For an entirely different perspective, join one of our armed professional guides and get close to nature. During a game walk you can experience the thrill of approaching wildlife on foot. Your guide will also teach you the basics of how to track wildlife from the ground as well as interesting facts about the surrounding vegetation and ecology.
