Average time to visit
This corner of Southern Africa has a wonderful temperate climate which can be visited all year round. The best game viewing is from May to the end September.
Summer (November to March) days can get quite warm (up to 28-32 degrees on average) but it is a dry heat. Summer rainfall, normally in the form of thunder storms are usually in the evening, however, the African climate is still always unpredictable. Fall (April to May) days can still be warm but the evenings cool down. Average day time temperature 22-28 degrees. Evenings 10-15 degrees. Winter (June to August) days are warm (temperatures in the mid-twenties) evenings and early mornings very cold with average early morning temperatures 5-12 degrees. It very rarely rains at this time when the bush is golden and dry.
Spring (September, October) days start getting hotter, evenings and mornings could still be crisp but not as cold. A very slim chance of rain.
To start planning your vacation to Jozibanini Camp
Jozibanini Camp is a small and truly exclusive camp in a remote part of Hwange National Park. The camp is situated in the south west part of the park where only the wildlife and park rangers frequent.
Jozibanini camp is a favorite of ours for its off the beaten track feel and simple, yet comfortable 'fly camp' style. The camp overlooks the Jozibanini pan and offers guests the chance to explore deep into Hwange National Park and experience close encounters with wildlife on foot, in vehicles, on mountain bikes and in the 'look up' blind.
The three tents at Jozibanini sit on raised platforms which can be made into twin or double bedded tents. All tents feature an en-suite bathroom consisting of a flush toilet and a bucket shower. Dinning is done in an informal and traditional 'fly camping' style out under the stars and around a camp fire.
One of the main characteristics that marks Jozibanini as a favorite is the range of activities on offer. In additional to the traditional game drives and walks, guests can enjoy mountain biking and game viewing during the day and at night under a full moon from the underground blind. Typically getting to camp involves also doing a 'pump run' to the camp where guests can help as much or as little as they want in re-supplying waterholes en route to the camp which give Hwange its heartbeat.
Please note that due to the remoteness of the camp a minimum two night add-on is recommended from one of Imvelo's other Hwange properties: Nehimba, Camelthorn or Bomani.
