Award Winning Tented Camp in the Heart of Hwange National Park

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.

At Somalisa our people are at the heart of everything we do. The passion exuded from our knowledgeable guides elevates the experience. With storytelling and teaching, they enlighten the guests by sharing their wonder and wisdom of the African bush. Every person is part of the community that helps create the magical and welcoming feeling you get when you visit Somalisa, you arrive as a guest, but you leave a part of the family.

Nature and luxury are in harmony at Somalisa Camp. With only seven 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.
