The lodge estate is in an exclusive 5,000 acre portion of Ngamo forest adjacent to the Ngamo gate into Hwange National park 1.5 km from camp.
Game activities into the park are within a vast exclusive wild area of the park.
The Park hosts over 100 mammals, including 19 large herbivore and 8 large carnivore species, as well as 400 species of birds.
Hwange is elephant country and much of the game viewing relates to magnificent opportunities to view these, the largest land mammals in large numbers in a completely wild state, including on foot.
Birding opportunities are excellent – particularly during the wet season as large flooded grassland areas are breeding areas for an array of water birds.
At the start of the rains in November/December huge swarms of intra african and palearctic migrants pour through the area and take advantage of the daily multiple alate eruptions.
