Khulu Ivory “Grandfather of Ivory” is located on a private concession of 6,000 acres. One of the many charms of this camp is that it offers guests luxurious and private accommodation accompanied with old world hospitality. Khulu is part of a small family run collection of which the Stead & Wilde family are still very much involved on a day to day basis, and this can be clearly felt at each of the lodges which as a result offers a more ‘personal’ touch. Hopefully, our clients will be lucky enough to bump into one of the family members but especially Khulu himself aka Cedric Wilde, who built Khulu and Amalinda. You can often find Khulu sitting around the camp fire, either playing his guitar or enchanting guests with the many interesting stories of his experiences in Zimbabwe. Khulu Ivory is accessible by using the Bulawayo / Victoria Falls main road and guests can self drive into neighbouring Ivory Lodge and from there be transferred by Khulu directly into camp. The distance from Bulawayo is 258 kilometres and from Victoria Falls 180 kilometres. As well as this, Hwange airport is only 8 kilometres away. Khulu Ivory comprises of 6 bespoke, thatched, safari style suites built onto slightly elevated platforms. Each well-appointed room is designed in a modern and contemporary style but has minimal impact to the surroundings and environment. One room is an exclusive honeymoon suite with a bathtub which overlooks our private waterhole. The units have an indoor and outdoor shower and balcony for game viewing as well as an individual tea and coffee service. The beds are twins but can all be converted to king sized for double occupancy. The camp currently has a total capacity of only 12 people. All rooms overlook an ancient riverbed, in todays terms called a ‘vlei’ and the waterhole in this riverbed is known to attract a variety of the greatest wildlife and birdlife in Hwange. Khulu’s main area provides a full bar which also commands view of the waterhole and has in stock a wide variety of local and imported beverages. There is a plunge pool located on the deck area as well as a fire pit for stargazing and night caps. The camp has borehole water throughout and an on site laundry service.
