Somalisa Camp

The best of africa

Tucked away on an Acacia Island along the edge of an ancient seasonal floodplain, the award-winning Somalisa Tented Camp offers gorgeous views and authentic bush elegance. Far from the madding crowd, the camp is built on a split-level wooden deck overlooking the famous Kennedy vlei line. Remote and romantic, there are only seven customised tents, each with a private viewing deck, luxurious en suite bathroom and a lounge area with a glass wood-burning fireplace for chilly nights.

Somalisa Tented Camp is the perfect place to take in the beauty of Hwange National Park, and to find inspiration and rejuvenation in the heart of the African wilderness. Built around an elephant drinking hole, the camp is visited frequently by these gentle giants as well as other wildlife, offering an ‘armchair’ safari experience for those who happen to be in the camp’s pool or relaxing on the deck overlooking the watering hole. Somalisa is a leading eco-friendly lodge, and the timeless elegance of this classic safari lodge is complemented with sustainable features that include solar-powered energy and a water recycling plant.

Big game safaris in Hwange include 4×4 drives, guided walks, birding, game viewing from secret hides and cultural tours. Charter road and air transfers to and from Victoria Falls can be arranged upon request.

Somalisa Camp is set in the heart of Hwange National Park Zimbabwe, and is known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds. Nestled in a stunning location tucked away on an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain, Somalisa provides guests with breathtaking views of the savannah plains across the famous Kennedy Vlei line. Recently re-built, Somalisa Camp has upgraded its level of accommodation to that of complete comfort and luxury whilst still maintaining its focus on the guiding and hosting of guests to ensure the ultimate guest experience.

Consisting of seven elegantly furnished Sail Tents with gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace for the cold winter nights, and a floor fan for the hot summer days, each tent has en suite bathroom facilities including flush toilets, an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a copper slipper-style bathtub.
