The First-Class Victoria Falls Hotel is a fine colonial-style hotel, and a member of the Leading Hotels of the World.

Iganyana Tented Bush Camp

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Bordering Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, the Iganyana Conservation Camp offers luxury in the bush. “Iganyana” means “painted dog” in the local Sindebele language, and the camp is named for the local love of this animal. The atmosphere of this permanent luxury tented camp evokes the safari culture of old, when Ernest Hemingway sought adventure in the wild. But unlike in Hemingway’s day, you’ll enjoy refined comfort with ensuite bathrooms and flush toilets, exemplary service, and delicious meals prepared with utmost care. Because Iganyana is located on a private concession, we will encounter fewer vehicles during game drives on the private concession, so we’ll be less likely to frighten the animals away.

Hwange Safari Lodge

The 100 en-suite rooms here each feature free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, a seating area with lounge chairs, coffee and tea facilities, and more.
