Elephant Express

Elephant Express, the Imvelo trolley car is in progress and is set to make its debut in 2015. This passenger tram will transfer clients by rail to Bomani and Camelthorn at the southeast corner of Hwange.

It will travel the same iconic rail line that runs from Pretoria to Victoria Falls and used by Rovos Rail. Clients will first transfer to Hwange Main Gate by road (1.5 hours) or via air into the Hwange National Park airport. Clients then will board the Elephant Express and ride the rails for the final 70 km to Imvelo's lodges. A leisurely game viewing on the way to Camelthorn and Bomani.
