Hidden deep in western Zimbabwe lies Somalisa Acacia, a spectacular private safari camp located in Hwange National Park.
Accommodations consist of four luxurious canvas tents on raised wooden floors, complete with beautiful furniture. The two Sail Tents come with gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace for the cold winter nights, and an overhead fan for the hot summer days. The en suite bathrooms feature flush toilets, both an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a copper slipper-style bathtub. Due to a complete rebuild, the camp now has two family tents which use inter-leading walkways between the parents and children’s rooms, both of which come with their own bathroom.
The camp is located within Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest and most popular national park. It is located between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls and is most famous as a home to 30,000 elephants, although countless other animal species inhabit this rich panorama of acacia woodland and sands. The vegetation across the park vary hugely, ranging from the semi desert scrub on the edge of the Kalahari in the south, to forests, granite hills, and valleys of mopane woodlands in the north. There is an abundance of wildlife found in the park year-round including lion, buffalo, cheetah leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah, giraffe, sable, roan, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck.
