If you’ve never been to Zimbabwe before, you’re in for a treat. After all, it’s one of the most beautiful, enigmatic, diverse and friendly countries in Africa.
At Imvelo, we aren’t just about luxurious lodges and there’s more to us than spectacular safaris - we believe in enriching the lives of those who live around us as well as our visitors. We work hand-in-hand with indigenous communities to create our properties from their land, resources and manpower. We are determined to ensure that it’s the local people and wildlife that directly benefit from our visitors.
For now, we’d like to take you on a little journey; to introduce you to our Lodges and some of their ‘wilder’ visitors; to show you our breathtaking and unique settings; and to highlight the differences that visitors like you have already made to the rural communities and preservation of our Park.
Staying at any one of our lodges helps to support our local community and wildlife initiatives. Come and see for yourself where your money really goes.

Luxury lodges that make
Each of our Lodges has been meticulously designed to offer all the home comforts, a splash of luxury and an exciting dash of unique. On top of this, our locations have been carefully selected for two vital reasons; the local indigenous communities dedication to our conservation partnership; and their proximity to some of Nature’s most impressive wonders, including the world’s largest falling sheet of water, Africa’s Big Five and ancient San cave art.
We are committed to protecting our environment and improving the lives of the local people, the land and its wildlife, and by visiting us, you help make this possible.
Whilst countless tour operators were preoccupied with making eco-claims, we were busy building genuine community and conservation initiatives. Game water supplies, mobile dental clinics, village bore holes and water pumps, school buildings and supplies, a library… and so the list goes on.
We have spent almost 20 years creating symbiotic relationships between man and nature and we have at last formed some mutually beneficial relationships with our surroundings. We are finally gaining some equilibrium and making a difference. You can become part of this by joining us on safari.
Whether this is your first or hundredth safari destination, we will tailor-make you the perfect holiday to remember.
On the whole, we don’t believe in telling our guests what to do, and like to let you do the talking. However, to get your creative safari juices flowing, take a look through some of our suggested itineraries and let us know what you think. We will then happily design a bespoke Zimbabwe experience to satisfy your every desire – after all, it’s what we’re best at!
Best time to visit:
One of our favourite things about Zimbabwe is that there IS no best time to visit – it’s like having a seasonal zoo on your doorstep - you just need to decide what you want to see and how hot you like it!
As the dry season commences, large numbers of elephant, sable, waterbuck and wildebeest regularly congregate at Bomani’s pan, which is the only permanent waterhole within our portion of the Forest. During this time, it’s not uncommon to see 1,000 elephants in a single day!
