Miombo Presentation:

Miombo Safari Lodge is nestled amongst trees on the edge of the world-renowned Hwange National Park, Miombo Elephant Camp & Little Miombo (a sister Camp) provide a relaxed & charming safari destination less than 2 hours’ drive from Victoria Falls. Miombo is the closest lodge to the private tour operator access gate into Hwange National Park.

The name stems from the regular nightly visits by elephant to the waterhole, often within metres of the platform suites & popular viewing deck.

Little Miombo is adjacent to Miombo Safari Camp & can be used as an independent self-catering camp or in conjunction with Elephant Camp.  The two camps share facilities such as the swimming pool & viewing deck.

  • Location

    Miombo Safari Camp is nestled amongst trees on the edge of the world-renowned Hwange National Park,

    The Camp is located just outside the Hwange National Park, on the tar road between the local town Dete and the Main park entrance. It is only a few kilometres from the National Park boundary and as Hwange has no boundary fences, wildlife moves in and out of the park freely.

    Miombo being positioned so close to the boundary means that game can and does move through their private concession, with elephants, buffalo and on occasion the resident lion pride coming to drink at the waterhole in front of the camp.

    Miombo Safari Camp and its sister Little Miombo rates are cheaper than many of the other camps which makes it a perfect choice for people on a tighter budget. The trade-off is that it is not in a prime location and one has to travel into the Park for a full safari experience.


    Hence this camp for clients on a tighter budget who are not concerned with the bells and whistles but to still want to get to see and experience Hwange. The camp does offer game drives in its own safari vehicles but this camp is ideal for self-drive tourists – half- and full-board options are available.



    • Close to main road, Hwange Main Camp, and Hwange Airport – easily accessible
    • A range of accommodation available from cheap thatched chalets to more expensive elevated     tents
    • An easy drive from either Bulawayo or Victoria Falls



    • Not in a prime location – a full safari experience can only be had by driving into Hwange National Park, although the entrance to the park is only 20 kilometres from Miombo Camp

    Hwange Climate

    Winter Months – Mid May, June, July, early August, although the days are warm with beautiful blue skies, the evenings can get extremely cold and temperatures below freezing are not uncommon, so definitely bring warm clothing. It’s cold I promise you!

    Summer months – September through to May. Hot to extremely hot days and warm evenings.

    Rainy season – Generally between late November and April although the occasional rain can occur out of these dates.


    Best Game Viewing Months
    August, September, October and early November are by far the best months for game viewing in this park. Water becomes extremely scarce and the animals congregate around the few pumped waterholes. Sitting patiently and quietly at one of these water holes will reward you with very good game viewing.

    During the rainy season from late November through to April, a completely different park emerges to that of the dry season. Parched savannahs turn into lush fields with an abundance of grazing. The animals disperse and game viewing becomes limited. It’s called the green season and has it’s own magic as this is when the park and all the animals rejuvenate themselves, feeding like crazy on the abundance of food. Newly born animals can be seen everywhere and the birdlife is absolutely prolific.

    It is situated in the southwest of Zimbabwe between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls.
