An intimate and secluded camp tucked away in the heart of Hwange National Park, Somalisa Camp is an ideal locale for experiencing the beautiful and wild African wilderness.
Accommodations at the camp consist of seven elegant Sail tents. Each tent comes with gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace to cozy up to during 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. Guests are likely to encounter elephants as they traverse the paths connecting the guest tents with the main area. The camp has recently been rebuilt to add even more luxury and comfort to its tents.
The camp is nestled on an acacia island near an ancient seasonal flood plain within Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest and most popular national park. The Park 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.
