Accommodations were nice and spacious, the staff kind and competent. Monkeys, antilopes, wardhogs and even elephants visited the lodge's pond during our stay. Mr B., the lodge's guide, took us to different parts of the Hwange park according to the time of the day and shared his extensive knowledge about the game and plants of the park. There was no question he could not answer. He was modest enough to claim that we were extremely lucky to see so much, but his science of the park certainly helped. Prices have no connection with the cost of living in Zimbabwe, though.
I've stayed here on more than one occasion.the staff are fantastic and so is the food but the lodge is very rundown and no input from the owners or upper management staff. The toilets leak.no mosquito nets. No fans or aircon. No shower pressure in the "safari tents.shower leaks water all night and no sleep cos of the constant dripping.toilet seat laterally came off because it wasn't screwed down. With all these fundamental problem the lodge seems to use vital funds on waterfeatures that also leak all over the dining room floor.
Situated on the edge of Hwange National Park, Miombi features camping as well as tented accommodation, the highlight of which are three sweet tree houses overlooking the waterhole, which were our home for a couple of nights. The place is immaculately clean and tended to with love and attention to detail. It is excellent value for money with extremely welcoming staff. Highly recommended for a short stay to go game viewing in Hwange.
This lodge was our base to do two safari drives in Hwange national park. We spent just one night there. We were staying there on a full board plan. The lodge being closest to the park has no civilization nearby. We arrived late for the check in but were treated to a nice and very tasty lunch. The room was a log hut held above the ground on stilts. The choice of food was limited but they did remember to provide vegetarian food for my wife. The cooking was amazing and we almost felt that the choice of what to eat had been made by wiser heads than ours. Their meal routine was built around the main activity namely safari drives. We has coffee and toast before the safari and a brunch on our return. Dinner was served at the end of the evening safari. Juices, coffee and tea as well as light snacks were always available. We just had to help ourselves. There was no possibility to go anywhere for night entertainment but the lodge had a short entertainment program after dinner. Despite the rustic setting, there were no insects in the rooms and we slept very well. Overall a great place to stay when in Hwange…
We've just returned from 2 nights in Miombo Safari Camp. We stayed in the elevated tents, which were delightful and comfortable. Don't expect utter luxury because you won't get it at Miombo, but what you will get is clean, comfortable and well-organised. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful, without being 'in your face'. The food was very good and plentiful. Our guides were Blessing and Bongani, and they made our game drives most interesting and informative. We saw a pride of 17 lions, which was a real highlight, and also approximately 130 elephant at a waterhole. An overwhelming experience. In summary, Miombo is a delightful place to stay and good value for money (in comparison with the costs of other Safari Lodges). We would definitely go back.
