A Typical Day on Safari

The day starts with the rising of the sun. Your wake-up call will be between 5am and 6am – a gentle “koko” (knock knock in Setswana) at the entrance of your tent. The canp staff will be on hand to fill your wash-hand basin with steaming hot water and freshly made tea and coffee will be served around the campfire. A light breakfast will be served before the early morning game drive. The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is in the early morning and late afternoon as most animals retreat to the shadows to rest during the heat of the day.

Having spent the morning exploring the surrounding wilderness in search of Botswana’s hidden treasures, you will return to camp for a sumptuous lunch under the shade of a Marula Tree (subject to availability). Just as the animals retreat to escape the heat of mid-day, so will you. This is your time to enjoy reading, chatting, relaxing or taking a nap.

Later in the afternoon you will head out into the wilderness once more as the animals awake from their days slumber and gather at the watering holes to quench their thirst. As the sun sets on the horizon, one can only marvel at the sheer splendor of an African sunset and with refreshments in hand, toast to the wonder of nature.

On your return to camp, you can gather around the warmth of the campfire with your fellow companions to relive the day’s events and excitement. Enjoy a three-course dinner fit for a King served with South African wines against the magical backdrop of the Africa night sky. Retreating to the comfort of your tent after enjoying a nightcap around the campfire, you can fall asleep to the calls of the African wild. Goodnight.

On moving days we will depart camp following an early breakfast, the safari teams will then pack down the camp, traveling ahead in the supply vehicle to prepare the camp for your arrival at the next location. We will first stop for tea, coffee and cookies and then later for a relaxing lunch under a shady grove of trees. Invariably lunch finds us a short distance from our camp.

Jozibanini Camp

By | News, Offers and Specials

Imvelo are excited to announce the opening of Jozibanini Camp! Situated in one of the most southern and untouched areas of Hwange National Park, ‘Jozi’ is a small exclusive camp in a truly wild place, providing a unique, untamed wilderness experience.

In the dry season, guests will reach the camp via a ‘pump run,’ resupplying waterholes en route, providing an opportunity for guests to get involved in the incredible game water supply program that is unique to Imvelo Safari Lodges. In the wet season, guests will go on an all-day game drive through the southern area of the park, ending up at Jozibanini in the late afternoon.

A ‘Look up Blind’ has been sunk just a few metres away from the camp waterhole and game viewing by moonlight from inside the blind will be an awesome experience. Guests will also be able to experience our unique new activity – game viewing on mountain bikes!

For travellers looking for an adventure off the beaten track, Jozi will be an exciting 2 day add on option to any of Imvelo Safari Lodges’ packages.
