Safari Experience

  • Morning and Afternoon Game drives
  • Game Walks – are an exciting option for photography of big game on foot. They are usually undertaken in the mornings and are conducted by a fully licensed and highly experienced armed professional guide.
  • Night Game Drives – it’s well worth joining one of the shorter night drives through private concession. The trackers operate powerful spotlights to seek out some of the less-seen nocturnal creatures.
  • The Look up Game Viewing Hide – For the hard core photographers. Bomani has game viewing hides at some of their waterholes ideal for wildlife photography

  • All day drives and pump runs – Imvelo Safaris who operate Bomani look after approximately 20- 25% of the waterholes that sustain Hwange’s wildlife – a huge commitment and your stay supports this sustainability.
  • Daily Horse Safari Rides – The open grasslands and forest groves of the Ngamo Plains around Bomani Lodge are among the most scenic areas of Hwange. This special scenery is ideal for horse-riding and several activity options have been designed for riders of different experience levels.
  • Village visits and school tours – Twenty minutes drive from the lodge, guests have the opportunity to enjoy an actual and un-orchestrated look at village life in rural Matabeleland.

Wildlife & Birdlife

The lodge estate is in an exclusive 5,000 acre portion of Ngamo forest adjacent to the Ngamo gate into Hwange National park 1.5 km from camp.

Game activities into the park are within a vast exclusive wild area of the park.

The Park hosts over 100 mammals, including 19 large herbivore and 8 large carnivore species, as well as 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 large numbers in a completely wild state, including on foot.

Birding opportunities are excellent – particularly during the wet season as large flooded grassland areas are breeding areas for an array of water birds.

At the start of the rains in November/December huge swarms of intra african and palearctic migrants pour through the area and take advantage of the daily multiple alate eruptions.
