Traditional bush camp
Somalisa Camp is set in the heart of Hwange National Park, known as the ‘land of the giants’ for its big elephant herds. Tucked away on
an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain, it gives breathtaking views of the game-rich plains and famous Kennedy Vlei line.
Somalisa is an authentic but glamorous bush camp with a blend of old African charm and modern styling. Accommodation consists of seven elegantly furnished sail tents with gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace for the cold winter nights, and an overhead fan for the hot summer days. Each tent has en suite bathroom facilities including flush toilets, an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a copper slipper-style bathtub. The main decking area includes split level decking with a separate lounge and dining area, as well as a small splash pool where you can swim overlooking the “Elephant Pool” and a natural waterhole where herds of game congregate to drink.
Activities include guided walks lead by some of the best and most highly qualified guides in Africa, who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, aswell as game drives and night drives. Wildlife sightings include elephant, kudu, sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hyena, and many other wildlife species.
With the perfect blend of style, authenticity and fantastic guiding, Somalisa is one of the finest camps in Zimbabwe.
