Lodges in Zimbabwe

enter image description here

It’s customary to tip lodge staff for their service, but you don’t need to tip them every day – you do it only at the end of your stay. Lodges usually offer a communal tip box for cleaning and restaurant staff, and the tip for your guide and tracker is usually put in an envelope or separate envelopes and handed to them directly or to the lodge manager.

If you’re travelling with children, note that many lodges will not accept children under a certain age and some don’t allow children at all. We’ll advise you on the age limitations for children upon your enquiry.
