This camp sits among a grove of acacia trees in a private, 150km² concession in the heart of Hwange National Park.

Somalisa Expeditions is set in the heart of Hwange National Park , and is known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds. As an exact replica of the original Somalisa Camp, Somalisa Expeditions offers one of the most authentic ways to experience this exceptional wildlife haven. Nestled under an incredible grove of Acacias, along the edge of a seasonal flood plain.

The main area includes a lounge and dining area on raised decking which overlooks a small pool, which elephants have become habituated to drinking out of. Add to this, the water hole is frequently used as a 'mud-bath' and a popular rendezvous for the elephants. The up-close encounters and photographic opportunities with these majestic animals is endless.

Consisting of six elegantly furnished Meru Style Tents, each tent has en suite bathroom with an outdoor feel. Activities include guided walks lead by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, game drives and night drives. Wildlife sighting include elephant, kudu, sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hyena and many other wildlife species.

Walking Safaris

Awaken your senses and discover all that the bush has to offer on a walking safari. Accompanied by one of our experienced walking guides, explore the wild for one to two hours. For a full day walking safari, a private walking guide will need to be pre-booked.

Birding

Hwange National Park offers some of Zimbabwe’s best birding. Delight in the call of the racket-tailed roller or the kori bustard, and photograph the majestic Martial eagle. There are up to over 470 bird life species in the area.

African Bush Camps Foundation Projects Visit

The African Bush Camps Foundation believes in creating a long lasting, positive impact on the local communities. This is achieved by partnering with these communities to uplift their circumstances through tourism. The ABCF started out in the Dete, Mambanje and Hwange Main Camp communities boarding Hwange National Park. Within these communities, the Foundation focuses on Education, Conservation, Community Infrastructure and Community Empowerment. A visit to these communities takes a day and needs to be booked in advance, however, it is a rewarding day that is worth the trip.

Game Drives

Lead by experienced guides, you’ll see magnificent wildlife indigenous to the area. Your guide will show you the hidden spots best for game viewing and give you an insider’s knowledge.
