Nantwich is a unique, small and intimate eco-lodge reclaimed from a bygone era for true safari lovers who want to get off the beaten track and discover the untouched wilderness and abundant wildlife of Northern Hwange National Park. It lies in the northwest corner of the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe and is the closest lodge to Victoria Falls. It can be accessed by a short 30 minute flight or easy 1.5 hour road transfer from Victoria Falls, making it the perfect midway stop from Chobe.
Untamed Africa at its best, Nantwich Eco Lodge is an escape that time forgot and where wildlife rules supreme, just as it should. The lodge comprises of comfortable and chic suites perched up on a bluff overlooking a dam with resident crocodiles and hippo, that draw large herds of buffalo and predators that follow them. The wildlife is a truly magnificent sight to behold and during your stay you might just be lucky enough for a showdown right on your doorstep!
Days here can be spent exploring the pristine wilderness and many tracks and trails of this secluded region, keeping a look out for leopard’s, Roan or Sable antelope and lions lounging in tall grasses. Evenings can be spent reminiscing with fellow travellers over the day’s highlights while dining on sumptuous fare at the open plan kitchen and restaurant that provides an intimate and lively atmosphere.
Guests can become a Hwange expert through guided bush walks and game drives. When not busy exploring the surrounding bush or spying on the wildlife right from the comfort of your chalet, the Main Lodge is where you will find the open lounge and dining area, as well as a well equipped library.
As part of this auction stay, the winner and their guest will be able to enjoy a free unique voyage aboard one of the bohemian styled Zambezi Truth Dhows based in Victoria Falls. Please note: the winner and their guest will need to pay for and make their own way to and from the Victoria Falls departure jetty in order to avail of their complimentary cruise. These beautiful traditional sail boats will navigate elephants and hippos along the magnificent Zambezi River, glimpsing crocodiles and game on the banks of the river too. Guests will sail gently upstream, without the noise of loud motors or bustling crowds, where only the lapping water and gentle swooshing of the sail punctuates exquisite natural beauty of your surroundings. Onboard you will experience authentic barefoot luxury and feel in-tune with nature as you float along the river, being gently rocked while taking in the sights and sounds around you. Take off your shoes and lounge luxuriously on the large light blue canvas cushions, feeling freedom and simplicity without compromising on comfort.
The winner and their guest will be staying in a Double or Twin Suite that has been lovingly recreated in an eco-friendly way.
