Highly recommended! The highlight of our stay was the entire experience provided by Edwin, Brian, Misty, Howard and the staff. They curated an incredible safari that was one of the best experiences of our lives. We will definitely be coming back!

October was dry and very hot but excellent game viewing as water is limited and Ingwe pan had a bit of water. Ranger Edwin was excellent -he explained proper stuff to us and was well aware that we were ardent and experienced bush people. Great place , service and i would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you for the amazing feedback, we are delighted to hear that you loved your recent stay at Ingwe Pan and that we could make your visit truly memorable. We are so excited to hear that you had some fantastic animal sightings, Mana Pools is such a special spot in Zimbabwe. Thank you for choosing us for your safari adventure, we really look forward to welcoming you back in the near future at one of our Machaba Camps.

I cannot say enough positive things about Ingwe Pan. The staff were not only extremely genuine, but extremely kind, sweet, and generous. What an incredible 3 night stay!! Richard, our guide, picked us up at the air strip with drinks in tow and “took the long way” back to camp so that we could essentially go on an extra game drive. We were greeted by the staff upon our arrival. Howard went above and beyond in his service and friendliness from the start of the trip. Mani is an incredible GM and probably spent more time with us than she was required to, but it was SO appreciated!! She was so open and warm and added SO MUCH to the overall quality and excellence of our experience. I cannot believe how hospitable all of the Ingwe staff were, including Alice, Brett, the housekeeping staff, and the chef! The chef was accommodating two vegetarians in our group, and the cooking was STELLAR! Everything was fresh and tasted healthy. The chef also baked the most INCREDIBLE chocolate cake, like EVER, and I am a cake snob. They also put the cake in the fridge for us so that we could enjoy the rest on the following day. Talk about personalized service! Richard is the best guide we encountered on our trip. He has the perfect personality for guiding and and is knowledgeable beyond compare. Last thing—Mani and the team planned a surprise, riverside lunch for us in the middle of a game drive. What a treat!!! I felt like a celebrity!! I would have stayed months longer at Ingwe if I could have. Most incredible introduction to the bush in Zim. Thank you Machaba for your attention to detail and hospitality!! Thank you for the amazing feedback, we are thrilled to hear that you loved your recent stay at Ingwe Pan and that we could make your visit truly memorable. We are delighted you loved our staff as much as we do! We may be biased, but they truly are just the best! Thank you for choosing us for your Zimbabwe adventure, we really look forward to welcoming you back in the near future at one of our Machaba Camps.

Wow! What an incredible place. My husband and I stayed at Ingwe Pan for the second stop during our Honeymoon. We could not have been happier. Mani, Liberty, Richard, Alice and Brett welcomed us just as the sun was beginning to set. The staff is extremely lovely and hard working. The nights were cool so we were pleasantly surprised with a hot water bottle at our feet in the bed! The accommodations were so clean and comfortable, overlooking the pan. We fell asleep and awoke to the beautiful sounds of nature. The food was also so so good. Liberty was the most incredible guide - his knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm are unparalleled. We will definitely be back. What an absolute treat reading such a wonderfully written review. I can feel the passion and happiness in your writing and I am delighted that you had such a phenomenal experience as Mana Pools will always leave you breathless with its beauty, it is a wildlife-rich, biodiverse wonderland that will delight you at every turn. Liberty is a fantastic guide his enthusiasm and passion exudes through everything he does. Thank you for choosing us to make your honeymoon truly memorable and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future at one of our other Machaba Camps.
