Classic safari meets rustic-chic at this intimate lodge near Hwange National Park
Just a short drive from Hwange National Park, this safari-chic bush lodge is a classy choice for an African wilderness adventure. Set within a private concession on the banks of an ancient riverbed, Khulu Bush Camp sits in an incredibly secluded and wildlife-rich setting. There’s a wonderful waterhole beside the lodge and frequent visits from wild elephants at the camp's own swimming pool. The décor inside combines luxury safari with old-world hospitality. Natural elements like timber and thatch are used throughout, and classic touches include leather couches and traditional African artefacts. The rooms are all similar in design, decorated with neutral tones and authentic canvas walls. Inside, indulgent features include an authentic hide rug, plush bathrobes and the luxury of a personal Nespresso machine.
Start the day with a full English breakfast feast before heading out for an early morning game drive. It's up to you whether you visit Hwange National Park or stick to exploring the private concession – while both are great, the mornings in the concession are especially popular with hyena and the endangered African wild dog. Swap to a guided game walk and see the small creatures of the area up close, or spend the afternoon in a secluded hide in Hwange – an exclusive experience where wildlife spotting and waiter service are guaranteed.
