Hwange National Park


Somalisa Expeditions  Location Map

Somalisa Expeditions is set in the heart of Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest and most loved National Park which is also known as the 'Land of the Giants' in reference to the big elephant herds found here.

The camp is nestled under an incredible grove of acacias, along the edge of a seasonal flood plain, and offers an authentic way to experience this exceptional wildlife haven. This is an ideal safari camp for anyone wanting to feel closer to nature and who are looking for a more 'rustic' safari experience.

Activities include guided walks led by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, morning and afternoon game drives, and also 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.

Consisting of 7 elegantly furnished Meru-style safari tents, each tent has en-suite bathroom facilities including a flushing toilet, running water and an outdoor shower.

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.  In addition, there is also a water hole which 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 are endless.

The camp is open all year round.
