Bomani Camp

Bomani Camp is situated in Ngamo Forest Area, 2kms from the Ngamo gate entrance into in Hwange National Park. Remote and private, your African experience will be shared only with others in camp. The camp lies in the Ngamo Plain which is an ancient fossil lake bed. As time went by, Kalahari sands from the west covered the calcrete lake-beds creating pans in the large open grasslands dotted with Ilala Palms that are typical of this area today.

About Bomani Camp

Bomani Tented Camp is situated in the south east corner of Ngamo Forest Area. Two kilometers from the boundary of Hwange National Park's Ngamo entrance gate. Bomani pan is the only permanent year round waterhole within this portion of the Forest Area. As the dry season progresses, large numbers of elephant herds, sable, waterbuck and wildebeest drink at the pan daily.

The camp has 8 tents – 16 beds, offering a personal and exclusive touch. Four of the spacious tents are built on teakwood platforms 5 feet above the ground overlooking Bomani pan; and the other four are on ground level – ‘close to nature’. The tents are exquisitely furnished and have en-suite shower, toilet and basin with hot and cold running water. The deck in front of the tent provides a superb spot to sip coffee or tea in the early morning.

The main lodge overlooks Bomani pan and comprises of the dining area, lounge, bar area and viewing platform in front of the bar. Two fireplaces provide warmth during the cool winter evenings and guests may also choose to sit around a fire pit in front of the main lodge and enjoy cocktails under the stars while listening to the sounds of the African bush.

Hwange Park
Hwange Park is the largest National Park in Zimbabwe and one of the great parks of Africa. It supports over 40,000 elephant and the largest number of mammal and bird species found in any of Zimbabwe's parks. Scattered within the prevalent woodlands are ancient fossil lake beds, that today are large savannah grasslands. These areas provide the best game viewing area of the park and arguably the best in Zimbabwe. Abundant game on the plains also support good numbers of large predators. A resident pride of lion can be heard roaring from the camp on most nights. Several different leopard territories surround the plain and a pack of wild dog den within an easy drive of camp. Cheetah and hyaena are also regularly seen in the area.
