This all-inclusive safari in Hwange strikes the perfect balance between style and comfort, while at the same time opening up the natural world for exploration and discovery.


Best time to visit Elephant’s Eye Hwange National Park

The position of our safari camp in Hwange ensures you have a virtual all-year safari destination in Southern Africa. Aim for the cooler, dry season between July and October for an optimum safari experience as waterholes attract a great variety of animals and the bush thins out well to ensure great wildlife viewing. Daytime temperatures are in the mid 20’s but drops considerably at night to below 10 degrees Celcius. For those with a special interest in birds, the best time to book a stay at Elephant’s Eye is between November and April when the wet summer months attract a host of migratory species. Just be aware that temperatures can exceed 30 degrees Celcius, so protection against the sun is a must.

Your Experience

A Big Five safari in Hwange, led by our experienced guides, will guarantee the most memorable encounters while guided walks will allow you to track wildlife through the pristine African bush, seeing often overlooked flora and fauna. Observe the natural world from a completely different vantage point while on a horseback safari or turn binoculars upwards on a bird-watching excursion when staying at our Hwange safari camp. A swimming pool and our eco-spa welcome you to take the time to indulge and relax. In the evenings enjoy exciting night-time game drives, romantic sundowners at breath-taking viewpoints, or take the opportunity to sleep under the stars at our secluded open-air star bed next to a waterhole. For an inspiring encounter, join our Community Upliftment Experience and cultural village tour.
