Situated inside the Ngamo Forest area, Bomani is located within a 5,000 acre remote private reserve, only 1.5 kilometres away from Ngamo’s gate to Hwange National Park. Once, rolling Kalahari sand dunes covered the area, but over time the rains turned the desert into an enormous lake. Today, the dry, expansive plains are dotted with natural water pans and Ilala Palms, offering a peaceful sanctuary to the countless herds of wildlife that call the area home. With the help of local builders, carpenters and thatchers, Bomani Tented Camp opened in 2000. Over time it has expanded, but remains an intimate and exclusive destination. There are now nine large luxury tents and one sumptuous thatched bungalow.
Hwange National Park has a wealth of wildlife all year round and in this 14 650 square kilometre expanse of land, game moves freely to and from Zambia, Namibia and Botswana.

These species include 19 large herbivores such as buffalo, impala, kudu, eland, sable, waterbuck, wildebeest and many more. In addition to this Hwange possesses 8 large carnivores including lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and wild dog to name a few. The elephants of Hwange are especially famous and and at over 20,000, the population of these majestic creatures is one of the largest in the world.
