About This Accommodation

Bomani Tented Camp is located in a private concession in a secluded area of Southeast Hwange National Park. Aside from Camelthorn (Bomani’s sister camp), Bomani is the only camp within 25 miles, so you never run into another car on game drives, creating a wild and remote feeling. Game-viewing is excellent in Hwange, but the park requires that vehicles leave by 6:00pm. However, night drives are possible within the private concession, as are walking safaris during the day.

The camp itself is charming. The main areas; comprised of a dining area, bar, lounge, and viewing deck; overlook the Bomani pan. Guests congregate around the fire pit for sundowners before their dinners under the stars. We particularly love the occasional sundowners at the nearby waterhole where resident elephants often stop by for a drink- you can get to close that your heart starts racing! There is a range of accommodation options at Bomani, some which we highly prefer over others. There are four Spurwing, five Hornbill, and one Royal Suite. Although the Spurwing tents are newer and have better views, we prefer the Hornbill tents for their more classic feel (for example, wooden floors in Hornbill suites over black tile floors in Spurwing). Spurwing tent #4 is the honeymoon suite which we love and the Royal Suite can accommodate families. Each tent is comfortable with en-suite showers and flush toilets and the Royal Suite has air conditioning.

One of Bomani’s most noteworthy features is its community involvement. Guests of Bomani are encouraged to visit nearby Ndebele villages to learn about their culture and see the firsthand impact of Bomani’s community projects, such as their sustainable water pump.

We would not consider Bomani to be a luxury property, but we like what it stands for and find the accommodation comfortable. This is a good budget option and is great for families.
