Situated in the heart of the game-rich Hwange National Park, Somalisa Expeditions Camp offers an original, authentic safari experience.
The camp consists of 6 authentic and elegantly furnished Serengeti-style safari tents, sleeping a total of 12 people and is an exact replica of the original Somalisa Camp. Each luxury canvas tent has an en suite bathroom including flush toilets, baths, al fresco bucket showers, and running water and is elevated above the bush on wooden decking. Other amenities include a fireplace for relaxing at night, fans, mosquito nets, writing desk, and complimentary laundry service. The rooms use solar lighting to minimize the impact on the natural bush environment. Guests can take in the panoramic views from the comfort of their private veranda. The camp’s water hole is frequently used as a mud-bath and a popular meeting place for the elephants.
The camp is nestled under a beautiful grove of acacias, along the edge of a seasonal flood plain, and located in the heart of Zimbabwe’s large and most beloved Hwange National Park. The park is known to have one of the highest diversities of wildlife and bird-life species than more than any other national park in all of Southern Africa, as well as being called the land of giants for its big elephant herds. Once the royal hunting grounds to the Ndebele warrior-king Mzilikazi, the 14,650-square kilometer national park is named after a local Nhanzwa chief. It is only about an hour away from the magnificent and world famous Victoria Falls.
