Elephant's Eye, Hwange | Hideaways Life-Changing Experiences

Elephant’s Eye, Hwange

Hwange National Park is one of Zimbabwe’s most unspoiled wilderness areas – an apt reflection of pure Africa. It is here where enthusiastic African travellers witness true wildness when immersing themselves into a world where elephants roam freely through the African savannah and nature takes its course daily in spectacular ways.

Situated on a large wildlife-rich private concession this unforgettable luxurious eco-lodge offers a secluded escape in the heart of the African bush where attention to detail and a passionate team of guides invite guests to fall in love with the wilderness and witness nature’s displays of drama, serenity, and freedom in the heart of Africa.
