Travelled: April 2019
Itinerary: 3 nights’ Batonka Guest Lodge (Victoria Falls), 4 nights’ Bomani Tented Camp (Hwange National Park) including transfers on the Elephant Express.
We have returned from our wonderful trip to Zimbabwe, you suggested such wonderful places to stay and our trip was very memorable.
Batonka Guest Lodge in Victoria Falls, an ideal easy walk to the town and Falls. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable, and the food was excellent. The breakfasts set us up for the day, with delicious gluten free options. The evening menu choice was limited, though delicious.
The train ride on the Elephant Express in Hwange Nation Park bound for Bomani Tented Camp was a unique way of travelling and we were spoilt by the staff on board with lunch and refreshments. The animal sightings whilst on board were a wonderful introduction to the Park.
From the moment we arrived at Bomani we were looked after royally by our appointed guide and lots of friendly, attentive staff. The tents were luxurious with en-suite full bathrooms, and the beds enormous and very comfortable. The camp was organised so that the tents were well spaced and positioned with views over the open velt. The food was plentiful and a very good quality, with delicious gluten free options always available. We thoroughly enjoyed the morning and evening drives on which the game was plentiful, and the guide very knowledgeable. Guided bush walks were also available.
Many thanks Tara, for your help and attention. We will definitely book with you again.
