Nestled in a remote area of Hwange National Park sits Nehimba Lodge. With its mix of perfect African charm and luxury throughout the lodge, it creates a wonderful safari experience for all those who visit. All the rooms with their very own balcony, look over the pan which is frequented by a number of the wildlife that are around, specifically elephants. For those warmer months head down to the pool where the views await you, everywhere you turn there is something wonderful to encounter; a luxurious and authentic place.

Why we love Nehimba!

Client Reviews

  • Incredible elephants!

    Nehimba may be one of the best places in the world to see elephants. Tens or even hundreds of them gather, at night especially, to drink at the waterhole. You get to watch them – including lots of baby and adolescent elephants – from a close distance as you have your dinner!

  • 2nd Visit – as good as the 1st

    This was our 2nd visit to Nehimba – and we weren’t disappointed. The chalets have been upgraded a little – and now have a small electric fence to try and stop the elephants from pulling down the showers when water is short. The elephants didn’t disappoint and visited on each night of our 3 night honeymoon.

  • Great experience.

    Nehimba lodge and staff were just great we were so happy there. The room & location was perfect with elephant walking past our balcony at night to get to the fresh water. The trackers were so professional and seemed to enjoy what they do and care for wildlife as well as guests. We had M T for our guide he showed us a great time. We were sad to leave Nehimba lodge and the welcoming staff after three wonderful nights.
