Coming from Bulawayo you will cross the Umguza and Bembezi Rivers and pass through the Gwaai and Bembezi indigenous forest areas. One of our open top safari vehicles will collect you from Halfway House and drive you the remaining 60 kilometres – about 1.5 hours, to Bomani. This drive is through the indigenous Ngamo Forest woodland where elephants and sable are often spotted.
Road and rail transfers: 2 hour road transfer to Dete Railway Station from Victoria Falls and then board the Elephant Express Railcar for the remainder of the journey to Ngamo Siding near
Camelthorn - approximately 2 hours. The railway line borders Hwange National Park and game is often seen during the journey. It was the longest stretch of perfectly straight rail line in the world – 120 kms - when it was built in the early 1900’s. The northern section runs through magnificent indigenous hardwood forest, while the south crosses the Ngamo Plains and ancient palm forests. The rail car seats 22 passengers and has a chemical toilet. Scheduled departure from Dete Railway Station to Ngamo Siding is at 14h00 and scheduled departure on return from Ngamo siding is at 11h00.
