Our professional guides transform an experience from passive viewing of sightings to a passionate demonstration of beauty and wonder. Their wisdom about the African wilderness will fascinate and amaze you.

Capturing the ambiance of a mobile camp but with all the trimmings, Somalisa Expeditions offers with authenticity and comfort. Slightly more grounded with common areas on the land giving you a closer connection to the true wilderness experience, without sacrificing any luxury. The honest and genuine design of this camps truly grants you the space to explore Africa as it should be. Where guests make themselves at home in Serengeti-style tents with contemporary finishes.

Reviews

  • I cannot begin to describe what an exceptional camp this is. Africa Bush Camps have set the standard for excellence. I’ve stayed in many camps in various countries and none are as well done as the ABC camps. The tents are just lovely and comfortable. When it was cold at night they provided hot water bottles. The staff were just excellent. If you like elephants this is the place as they are everywhere! This is a must stay place.

  • We are overawed and deeply touched by the passion, enthusiasm, drive, respect and service mindedness that is engrained in all personnel and Somalisa Expeditions. Once back home in the European “jungle” does one really realize how special, beautiful and exceptional our experience has been. We look back with deep gratitude to all who made this trip an unforgettable experience.

  • I cannot summarise in one review how amazing this place is. The lodge offers luxury, wonderful food, amazing service and superb facilities. The aspect, however, that really marks this camp out as one of the most fantastic places is its people. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted with warmth, sincerity and first-class hospitality.
