Somalisa Camp

Zimbabwe’s Leading Tented Safari Camp – World Travel Awards 2019

Award-winning Somalisa really is an exceptional camp. It sits under the shade of an Acacia grove overlooking the edge of an ancient seasonal floodplain. At the edge of the expansive deck in the main camp area, sits an elephant pool which is frequented by elephant families - a real highlight at this beautiful camp.

Somalisa has pride of place in a private concession in the heart of the fantastic Hwange National park as one of the park’s first lodges – and the first by this operator. Providing guests with beautiful views over the savannah plains of Hwange; one moment you will be sipping on your gin and tonic listening to the distant low roar of lions. Then the next, you are gazing over at a congregation of elephants, meters away, peacefully sharing a sundowner with you. Vast Hwange National Park offers guests a real view of raw and diverse Africa. Here is a land of contrasts from dense teak and acacia forest to vast open savannah.

The camp itself has been wholly re-styled from an original bush camp such that is now a luxurious, comfortable and oh so elegant camp showcasing the natural wood and organic features of the bush. Kudhinda, the Zimbabwean national material, is thoughtfully paired with modern decor influences creating an authentic contemporary African style. The seven tastefully furnished sailcloth tents come with all creatures comforts such as a fan, a battery charging station, wood-burning fireplace and private viewing deck. Your stunning bathroom, really worthy of a special mention, is inspired by the romance of yesteryear, boasts an indoor and outdoor shower and features a copper slipper-style bathtub and endless views across the vast plains beyond… It also leads the way in eco-friendly safari accommodation being awarded the first GOLD Green Tourism Certification in Zimbabwe.

Explore legendary park through a variety of pursuits while staying at Somalisa Camp. Activities include walking safaris, game drives, birding and cultural visits. All are included in your stay and led by Somalisa’s qualified and passionate guides.
