About
Description
Bathed in the tales of pioneer hunters and explorers, Ivory lodge stands on tree-stilted platforms above the waterhole. Watch by floodlight the night animals and the sounds and smells of the great African bush More emanates up into your room. Once these incredible sights, sounds and smells enter your system, you will never get rid of them and the want for more will haunt you for a return. Come enjoy Zimbabwe hospitality at its warmest.
