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. Its stunning location tucked away on an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain gives it breath taking views of the savannah plains over the famous Kennedy Vlei.
Only six elegantly furnished canvas tents with en suite bathrooms, flush toilet and romantic alfresco bush shower make up this camp. The décor echoes those days of old; from colonial to the ancient tribes of Africa, telling a story from all corners of the continent. The lounge & dining area are at the forefront of the camp, tucked under a soaring canopy of trees. Wide and well-traversed elephant trails make up the paths connecting your room to the main area. The stunning main area and pool offer complete relaxation, whether it be a cup of tea or a cocktail whilst overlooking the waterhole where game congregates in large herds. A highlight is watching the elephant herds as they come and drink from the swimming pool!
Activities include guided walks, game drives and spot lighting, as well as game viewing from hides. All are led by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you.
At Somalisa Camp, you will experience the heightened romance of the African Bush in one of the most natural environments in Africa. This is the way Africa was meant to be explored.
