Christmas in the African bush is a wondrously unique experience, very different from what most people in the Northern hemisphere are used to. Instead of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, it’s ‘braai vleis’, eggnog is replaced by Amarula (a delicious African drink served with ice), woolly jumpers by khaki, and reindeer by impala and other antelope. It’s also a wonderful time of year to be in the bush, the first rains have fallen after the dry season bringing new life amongst the fauna and flora. Why not consider a trip to Elephant’s Eye, Hwange over your Christmas holiday?
Create special memories with you and your family, how many people can say they’ve spent Christmas in the African bush under the stars with elephants stopping by? Rates are favourable too as it is during the green season. And remember, kids stay free at Elephant’s Eye, Hwange so it could be the ultimate gift for your kids. Our welcoming staff, with their characteristic Zimbabwean friendliness, will be sure to provide a festive atmosphere and create memories that will last a lifetime.
And as it’s the season for giving so why not consider bringing some extra school supplies for the children of Dingani Primary school through our Pack for a Purpose initiative, or even purchase a couple of sets of Subz panties for the Gr 6 and 7 girls.
Some people like to use the Christmas holidays as an opportunity to travel to exotic far-flung destinations and have a memorable Christmas. While some prefer to avoid a large family gathering and all the work and drama that can be involved. Elephant’s Eye, Hwange is the perfect escape for either one of these types of people. And even better, no last minute shopping in a crowded mall, listening to the same Christmas carols on a loop while on the hunt for that perfect gift, instead the only thing you’ll be searching for is the Big Five with your family.
