Zimbabwe’s Leading Tented Safari Camp – World Travel Awards 2019
Hwange National Park is a land of contrasts from dense teak and acacia forest to vast open savannah, offering guests an exhibition of raw and diverse Africa. Somalisa Camp is a place where tranquillity meets adventure.
Where one moment you are sipping on your gin and tonic, listening to the distant baritone roar of a lion coalition off on the hunt, and the next you are gazing over at a congregation of elephants at your doorstep, peacefully sharing a sundowner with you.
Nature and luxury are in harmony at Somalisa Camp. With only 7 tastefully furnished canvas tents, this intimate camp is perfect for a relaxing holiday with friends and loved ones.
With natural wood and copper finishes, the organic features of the bush fuse perfectly with the deluxe style. Kudhinda, the Zimbabwean national material, is thoughtfully paired with some more modern decor creating an authentic contemporary African fusion.
At the edge of the expansive deck in the main area, sits an elephant pool which is frequented by elephant families, which is a true highlight at this beautiful camp.
Explore Hwange National Park through a variety of activities while you stay at Somalisa Camp.
Activities include walking safaris, led by our qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, game drives and cultural visits.
Wildlife sightings include elephant, kudu, sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hyena, and many other wildlife species.
