Against the dusty backdrop of Zimbabwe’s beautiful bush is a cool, green retreat, a true cocoon of relaxation, just one and a half hours from the capital, Harare. Sable Lodge at Imire offers seven comfortable lodges of varying sizes, fine home cooking and a sparkling swimming pool set in a beautiful garden, all within the amazing African bush.
A typical day at Sable Lodge may include an early morning Elephant Ride. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows you to interact closely with these astoundingly intelligent and sensitive animals. Follow this with a full English Breakfast, go out on a game drive or bird walk, climb Castle Kopje or visit Markwe Caves to see bush paintings and ancient tribal artefacts.
Lunch is served out in the game park (weather permitting!), with a visit from the elephants or rhino a highlight of the day; not to mention sundowners from the lookout point later – after that must-do afternoon siesta! If you like, you may learn more about our active community projects, we’ll be happy to fill you in and show you our work.
At night, enjoy chatting around a fire with some star-gazing and end off the day with a hearty meal and a good night’s rest, lulled to sleep by the sounds of nocturnal Africa.
