guided walk in the bush with rhino

Adventure to ‘One of the Greatest places on Earth’ in 2022 as voted by Time Magazine!

The esteemed Time Magazine looked far and wide to find the 50 most extraordinary destinations to visit in 2022 and Hwange National Park, teeming with wildlife and the Imvelo camps where you can visit Thuza and Kusasa was voted as one of the ‘greatest places’ to visit this year! 

Guests are truly having spectacular visits to the sanctuary and spending time with these beautiful and endangered species all while significantly contributing to the upliftment of this community in a very tangible and transparent way. Late in June, the rhino marched through to the wider sanctuary and started exploring their bigger home, with the Cobra scouts in close range but at a safe distance, trying to keep up. They found the Camelthorn trees surrounding Imvelo’ Camelthorn Lodge and seemed to enjoy the shelter from the wind.  It’s been emotional so far, and the rhinos’ journey continue as they now explore beyond their original boma. Watch the short video below of the historic moment the first two rhino bulls were translocated back to Hwange in almost 20 years!

This conservation safari with purpose is special and memorable – not only because of this inspiring initiative but also because of all the other unique experiential activities guests can enjoy while with us. Travelling through Hwange aboard the Elephant Express rail car, close up photography from our underground blinds where you can count the elephant’s eyelashes you are so close to them and riding through untouched pristine wilderness on mountain bikes – are just a few reasons our safaris are thrilling, different and extraordinary.

Thank you to the Time Magazine and Terry Ward for finding the real hidden gems out there and for recognizing Hwange and Imvelo as one of the ‘greatest places on earth’ to visit in 2022.
