Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This lodge was part of a Safari package. What a great place. The atmosphere, the service, friendly. Animals were just on the other side of the fence. Food was exceptional. Would definitelyrecommend. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, but could use a little update/tic.

Everything is just super. Spectacular view out of the longe rooms. Have nothing to add to that. Restaurant service is a bit slow, but it is compensated with the food quality. Room door lockers doesn't look very reliable, so I prefered to take my valuable belongings with me.

Had a great one night stop here and hopefully will return soon. Room was good with a view over the Savannah. Breakfast and evening meal were buffet style and were very good. Ate our evening meal outside and the staff lit fire pits later on. Staff were very friendly. Pool looked good although I didn't use it.

I visited for business there. But the wonderful experience at Hwange safari lodge complemented the visit. Evening campfire helped to enjoy the cold.

Nice outside view through the windows. Cool morning breeze. Neat rooms . Friendly staff and good service. It was my first time to book there and we loved the elephants that we saw at a very close range.

We loved our stay and honeymoon at hwange safarilodge! We got a spacious Nice room with a wiew to the savanna and the animals. The place was quiet with few guest, so we felt we had the place for outselves. Great hospitality and great safari, an unusual exotic experience. Loved it!

Compared to the last time I was there a few years back, I was rather underwhelmed. My booking thru booking.com somehow got messed up and was put as a booking for a single person instead of a double. Hotel showed remarkable inflexibility in rectifying the mix-up and I ended up paying considerably more than envisaged. Fortunately I was carrying enough...
