“Beautiful location, with a waterhole directly in front of camp…The rooms are very comfortable , with wonderful views and both inside and outside showers…we did see Ellies, cheetah and two Lioness’s plus two cubs on the drive in one morning. The Camp was very well run… the whole team are fantastic, very friendly, always ready to chat and pour you a drink. The food was always freshly prepared and excellent.”
“I can understand why Khulu Lodge is a favourite of many reviewers. The camp is well run, the accommodations and service are excellent. It is well situated with many opportunities to view wildlife from our tent or the main lodge. We watched ellies drinking from the plunge pool and visiting us at night as we enjoyed beverages at the campfire under a star filled sky.”
“What once was only possible in movies, became reality in khulu ivory lodge; I have never felt so close to nature as. I did here: elephants drinking out of the swimming pool while we were sitting only 2 meters away, unthinkable but true. Hospitality was amazing, food exquisite and location surreal! We want to thank the entire staff for everything!”
“We stopped at Khulu on our honeymoon. It was all very last minute, we were booking Camp Amalinda, mentioned we were going to Hwange and they offered us this as well. Wow, are we glad we said yes. I just loved this place, it is so personal, so romantic, so peaceful.”
“Indeed a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This intimate lodge caters for 12 guests at a time where Elephants roam around the lodge and drink from a trough right at the small sun deck, and other animals make themselves seen and heard during the day and evening.”
“Never a dull moment. The watering hole provides continuous entertainment and the elephants drinking from the pool a real up close and personal experience that will live with us forever. Privileged to have shared our time here with “Khulu” & his family.”
