Hwange NP Main camp

During our trip we spent some nights in hotels, but we had also the opportunity to camp in Chimanimani, in Victoria Falls and at the main camp of Hwange NP.
The nights in August are cold, so you need a warm sleeping bag.
At all the places it was also possible to hire a cottage, chalet or room.
At main camp we slept in our tent for $ 2
There are cottages and chalets from $ 3.50 to $ 11.

Ranger headquarters, shop, pub, restaurant, petrol station.

Tented Camp: Diner In The Zimbabwe Bush

Nice set-up here. The camp hands took care of everything. Too much food also. At the later
at night dinner. The INSECTS would fly around the lamps. They don't bother you. But interesting to watch.

Tented Camp: Hwange Park Camp

I can not remember the area this camp was located. But it was inside the PARK.
Much better than lodges. Or even some of the other bigger tented camps.

I knw even before I got there. The BUCKET
SHOWER would be great! You can have you water COLD or HEATED! I always liked it COLD!

HWANGE CAMP: Only a Candle & Flash Light

No power, just what you see here. Your out in the BUSH. So, what do you expect?
10/1999

Great time & experience. This safari was part of a set SAFARI. So it was included in the price. Most places have a single supplement.
I got away with it.

VICTORIA FALLS BACKPACKERS: ONE OF THE BEST BACKPACKERS IN THE WORLD


This is how a 'BACKPACKERS' should be. They say on their website they offer a "A Safari Lodge atmosphere and facility at Backpacker prices". They do. I stayed in nice room with a wall safe & mosquito net in the pleasant garden courtyard near the pool. The kitchen is open air as is the TV room/lounge. They make a fire every night and will help you set up the fantastic BBQ they have for a braai. You can sit and sun yourself, or have a walk into town and see the falls. The staff can also arrange money conversion at a good rate, tours, flights, whatever you want. They even offer discounts if you buy more than one adrenaline activity (i.e. Bungee Jumping the falls). Free and secure car parking is right at the front and they even washed my car. While so many people go and stay in Livingston in cramped conditions 16 km from the falls – you could be here enjoying quiet luxury at a hostel price. Meals? Cook your own or ask the staff to make you a meal. It’s all flexible and inviting. A must stay.

• Swimming pool open all the time
• Braai every night
• Secure
• They can arrange anything and everything
• Friendly staff
• Low prices

THE VICTORIA FALLS HOTEL: ULTIMATE COLONIAL LUXURY



Are you a member of a Royal family, A president of a country or just a foreign Ambassador? Well this is the place for you and anyone who can afford to stay here! This is one of the most distinctive hotels in the world. It’s a real wow. You can truly visualise all the excesses of the Colonial days. Smoke a cigar in the lounge with the stuffed heads of wildlife looking down on you. Have a drink in the wood panelled bar with zebra skin rugs on the floor. Listen to the live bands that play beside the Edwardian pool for your relaxation and enjoyment. View the murals in the The Livingstone Room. They also have all the modern amenities like the internet, spa and several restaurants.

Stanley's Terrace overlooks part of the falls and you can watch people bungee jumping from the bridge. You can also watch Baboons stealing fruit from somewhere in the hotel and running towards the falls with their ill-gotten proceeds!

The Joy of Relatives: Harare Flat

During our stay in 1995, we visited our now-widowed aquaintance who had moved to a more practical flat on the outskirts of Harare. This was a very comfortable single-level dwelling with a typically lush back-garden to sit in and enjoy the afternoon sun!

Illala Lodge and Tents!: Camping Is The Best!!

Near Victoria Falls, nice place called:ILLALA
LODGE. Not crowded, pretty, and good food!
But the best place to stay! Is in a TENT! It's
OK to stay in a lodge at the beginning and
end of your safari. Along the way, some kind of tent. Here along the Zambezi River. You
can look over and see Zambia!!

Illala Lodge, good grounds. Good food, nice
people! Quiet. The tents, what can I say. It's
the best!!!!!

HWANGE PARK: "A NEW TREAT"

Along with the big tents. We had: BUCKET-
SHOWERS!! I knew we would have these.
That made it more fun. I always had my water cold!! It felt good. If you want the camp hands will heat it up for you!

Just too much fun. Even more fun while in the shower out-side. You hear the JACKALS
near by!!

Tented Camp: Different Looks

Everything is spread out. After dark, it does get a little tense, but exciting! Walking back to your tents.

Camping was a great way to overnight in the Parks and enjoy the feeling of being in the wild (Great Zimbawe / Motobo / VicFalls). I was very surprised of the quality of the campgrounds. Be prepared to face monkeys...

Unfortunately, I couldn't get into the Halfway Hotel, halfway between Bulawayo and Vic Falls. It looked really pretty though and the food was good.
