Lodge safaris are simply safaris that use lodges or permanent tented camps as accommodations. Lodge safaris in Zimbabwe offer a wide range of options- from small exclusive use camps that can be booked by families or groups to larger lodges. There is also a wide range of options from 2-5 star, rustic to absolute luxury!
Many lodges are able to offer a wider choice of daily activities as compared to mobile safaris- as they have permanent facilities at which they can moor larger boats for instance. Many also offer amenities such as pools in which to cool off, or wi-fi (although in remote areas the chance to disconnect can be welcome!) All the lodges we recommend also offer the experienced and knowledgeable guiding that Zimbabwe is known for.
Lodge safaris also suit anyone with a tight schedule who is wanting to cover as much ground as possible. At Travel Wild Zimbabwe we have personally visited all the lodges we recommend and can vouch that they are of very high standard. We have carefully selected offerings in all of the main safari areas.
Distances between national parks are long and the road infrastructure can be rough. This means that the best way of visiting most camps is through air transfers or charters. We know which camps are best suited to families, honeymooners, birders and more as well as which offer the best value and when is best to visit the different areas.
