In a single word - unique! Malindi Station Lodge is an exclusive safari camp set in the untamed African bush on a private safari concession bordering Hwange National Park.

Our safari focus is largely based on the Zambezi Valley environments�as a result of glowing reports from past safari clients of ours to Zimbabwe over the last 3 years we strongly recommend Malindi Station Lodge to all of our honeymoon couples or guests looking for a really special safari experience. We recommend a 3 night stay.

"Shunted off the tracks of time, taking with it all the trappings of a golden age of steam trains and luxury travel, is Malindi Station Lodge" - so the literature tells us. The lodge offers classic accommodation in restored railway carriages in a prime safari concession - 5 minutes drive via Makwa Pan into Hwange National Park.

Malindi Station Lodge: a unique harmony between luxury accommodations and the wild African outdoors, "where the echoes of whistles and the whisper of steam mingles with the call of the wild".
