Ivory Lodge is set on its own 6,000 acre conservancy bordering Hwange National Park and offers “big game” viewing with frequent sightings of lion, elephant, leopard and buffalo. Ivory Lodge is built in the tree tops of a teak forest with six en suite rooms elevated and has sweeping views of the floodlit waterhole. The central dining area, bar and library are set around a pool. Some evenings, dinner is served around the campfire in the boma.
Activities include open-vehicle game drives, walking safaris and spending time in the hide which is located right next to the waterhole.
Unique to Ivory Lodge is Sharon Pincott, a researcher whose passion lies with the Presidential Elephant herd. In 1990 this herd of elephants was saved from culling by a presidential decree and Sharon has been spending time with them ever since. A game drive with Sharon is an amazing experience and the elephants often come up to her and allow her to touch their trunks (very rare as these are wild animals). Sharon is eager to share her passion and knowledge of the Presidential Elephants. (Please pre-arrange game drives).
