Somalisa Camp is a luxury tented camp set in a grove of camel-thorn trees beside a dry river bed in a 15,000 hectare private concession deep inside Hwange, Zimbabwe’s largest National Park. It enjoys a very peaceful location far from other camps, and overlooks a waterhole.
Accommodation & Facilities
The seven large, elegantly furnished ‘Sail’ tents at Somalisa have sliding gauze doors leading to a private deck, a wood-burning stove for the chilly winter nights, and en-suite bathrooms with a free-standing ‘slipper bath’, a flush loo and in- and out-side showers. Delicious meals are served in the tented mess area or on the deck outside. The elephants seem as likely to quench their thirst from the plunge pool as from the waterhole. A second pool has therefore been built higher up the decking for those wishing to swim in cleaner water without a trunk joining them!
