Our Latest Trip to Elephant's Eye Lodge, Hwange

We recently visited Elephant's Eye Lodge in Hwange National Park this month. This is what we got up to during our stay.

 

After the hype of the marathon had calmed down, I made my way to Elephant’s Eye, Hwange.

 

This gorgeous eco-lodge lies just outside Hwange National Park and is an easy 2,5 - 3 hour drive out of Victoria Falls if taken by transfer, and roughly 2 hours if you’re self driving - perfect for me as I didn’t have much time there before driving back up to the Falls.

 

Arriving around lunch time on Wednesday, I was greeted with an EXTREMELY happy team of staff. Smiles and waves were thrown about joyously and were visible from a mile away.

 

I was introduced to each individual and taken up to the lounge area overlooking the pool which further looked onto a boma and eventually, after a long stretch of grass and bush and a watering hole in the far distance, the horizon was all I could see.

 

Aaron is the manager of Elephant's Eye, and I cannot speak higher of him if I tried! He is wonderful in every regard - knowledgeable, informative, welcoming, and most importantly he is so friendly and has a smile that never fades!

 

Aaron showed me to my beautiful room which had an amazing view from every corner - even the bathtub! A king size bed made up with soft white linen, a fire place and other small touches that made the room what it was - total luxury.
