Full accommodation information

Set in Africa's wildlife-rich Hwange National Park is the intimate and eco-friendly bush camp, Somalisa Camp. If you’re searching for the perfect place to relax with your loved ones with the bustle of African wildlife just a stone’s throw away, opt to have your unique safari getaway here, where tranquillity meets exhilarating adventure.

It’s not every day that you can listen to the roar of a lion and watch the elephants cool off in the water pool whilst sipping on your favourite drink, but with Somalisa Camp, this can become reality. This camp is renowned for making your stay as magical as it can be, with a home-away-from-home feeling from the staff that become family by the end of your stay.

Stay in the Luxury Sail Tents, where you’ll find everything you need to keep you comfortable in the national park. Soak in the soothing earth tones of the décor that is accentuated by the authentic, Zimbabwean materials, organic features and a contemporary twist. Here, you’ll have the unrivalled view of the elephant pool, where you’ll find yourself unable to peel your eyes from as you watch the herds take a dip, cooling off from the glorious African heat.

Take guided excursions through the safari with a knowledgeable guide, who is a passionate storyteller of their surroundings. Whether you choose to take a walking tour or a safari game drive, you won’t be short on breathtaking encounters with the fascinating wildlife. See migrating zebra, prowling lions, wandering giraffes and if you take a look to the sky, you might even see the African finfoot or goliath heron.

Alternatively to the game drives, you can put on your most comfortable boots and take a guided walk to marvel at nature with the African soil beneath your feet. Hwange National Park is home to a vast variety of bird species that you can discover on your travels. If you’re a lover of birding, this camp might be the best choice for you, with sightings of the racket-tailed roller or kori bustard.
