Elephant's Eye, Hwange
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 October 2016

Wonderful Eco lodge, with great food, great staff, and an enticing swimming pool and fire pit. Inside and outside shower facilities to enable animal viewing all the time. The elephants enjoy a nightly drink from the swimming pool. You couldn't ask for closer than that. Well worth a visit

Lovely staff, beautiful meals, outstanding accommodation. Can't recommend this place highly enough. The elephants drinking out of the swimming pool each night was amazing, as was showering in the outdoor shower while watching them around the watering hole.

This is the most unique place I have ever been. It is like being in a movie. The staff are wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable, the food is very good, the accommodations are very comfortable but the elephants, oh, the elephants are truly amazing. The outdoor shower has the best view ever. I cannot imagine anyone not loving this place.

Hi 70jer

Wow – thank you for such a stellar review. I am so happy to know that you had a wonderful time!

Thank you for recognizing the efforts of the staff. We are truly blessed to have such a passionate team operating the lodge.

It is wonderful that you got to see the elephants. Their visits to the lodge have increased dramatically during the course of this year much to the delight of both the staff and guests. This has definitely become one of the highlights of staying at the lodge.

Once again, thank you for the kind words. We hope you will visit us again in the near future.

Kind regards,

Garth

Elephant's Eye was an excellent experience. They have very nice and friendly people working there. Their lodging is luxurious and comfortable. The location is ideal for visiting the wildlife in and around Hwang Park.

We spent three nights in this wonderful camp located just outside Hwange National Park. The 'chalet' on stilts was spacious and lived up to its luxurious description. There was a huge bath and an outside shower visible only to the elephants etc at the waterhole. Elephants Eye definitely deserves its name - literally hundreds of elephants visit the waterhole and camp. Many of the elephants also use the swimming pool to drink from. It's very special sitting at the boma watching them. Blessed, the manager, and all his staff provide an excellent service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, paticularly Martin and Shepherd, two of the guides. We spent one full day in the national park, which can only be described as epic! Blessed, Martin and Shepherd will understand! A special thank you to the girls who arranged a lovely hot bubble bath for us. Peter and Judith

Hi Garland2015

Thank you for taking the time to share your review of your recent stay at Elephant’s Eye, Hwange. I am happy to know that you had such a wonderful time and that the team took such great care of you.

I am glad that the chalet was too your liking and that you got to see the elephants who frequent the lodge at sunset. Seeing that many elephants in such close proximity is, in my opinion, one of the things that make Elephant's Eye such a special place.

Thank you for recognizing the efforts of your guides, Martin and Shepard. I am so happy to hear that your game drives in Hwange National Park can only be described as ‘epic’!
