The intimate Khulu Ivory, ‘Grandfather of Ivory,’ is a new safari lodge situated on a 6 000 acre private concession adjoining Hwange National Park. The Park is the largest in Zimbabwe, occupying roughly 14 650 square kilometres. It’s located in the northwest corner of the country, about one hour south of the iconic Victoria Falls. The lodge combines rustic luxury with old world hospitality, ensuring guests of a memorable getaway.
Khulu Ivory was designed to have a minimal environmental impact, and sited to create optimal views of the busy waterhole in the ancient riverbed. Khulu offers all the modern amenities of a five star luxury lodge while exuding a traditional African safari ambience.
The secluded Khulu Ivory comprises of just three bespoke thatched safari suites, accommodating a maximum of six guests. The well-appointed suites, all elevated on platforms to command spectacular views over the busy waterhole, have a modern contemporary style. Each suite has an indoor and outdoor shower and a private balcony for game-viewing.
Hwange is home to the Big Five and offers superb game viewing, with teeming herds of sable, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, impala, zebra, and wildebeest. Guests may sight lion, leopard and wild dog, and maybe the rarely seen rhino.
Over 400 species of birds have been recorded in Hwange, and is best known for its huge population of raptors such as the martial eagle, Steppe buzzard and Bateleur eagle. The largest bird found here is the ground dwelling Kori bustard. Specialities include crowned cranes, Bradfield’s hornbill, Burchell’s sandgrouse, the Bronze-winged courser, and the ever-present lilac-breasted roller. Migratory species such as southern carmine bee-eaters, black kites and broad-billed rollers greatly increase the bird list in the summer months.
