Somalisa Camp


This award-winning safari camp offers simple luxury in Hwange National Park

In the eastern heart of Hwange National Park, this gorgeous tented camp is where high-end luxury meets romantic adventure. Promising high-end safari experiences, Somalisa Camp sits in a private concession, alongside a game-rich ancient floodplain. Beyond its award-winning and contemporary style, the camp’s sustainable design has secured the first GOLD Green Tourism Certification in Zimbabwe. Alongside a solar power farm and water purity system, its eco-friendly strategy merges perfectly with its elegant style; innovative decoration incorporates lots of natural elements like wood and copper, and there’s a charming style upheld throughout.

Beside the main lodge, there’s a natural waterhole that’s frequently visited by elephants and wild buffalo. Within the lodge, a split-level deck combines a spacious lounge and dining area, while outside the quaint splash pool is perfect for when the summer heat gets too much. The rooms are styled as an elegant sail tent and offer a sophisticated safari escape combining classic elements with contemporary finishes. Inside, traditional features include genuine canvas blinds and draped mosquito netting, while the copper slipper-style bathtub adds a touch of indulgence to your stylish open-air bathroom.
