Safari to Somalisa Acacia Camp Hwange

Bring your family and children on an unforgettable safari holiday to a great Zimbabwe National Park called Hwange, and stay in a camp named after the glorious thorn trees that grow here in abundance – Somalisa Acacia Camp is your go-to safari camp when you want to explore Africa’s wildlife. 

Choose this outstanding setting and game-viewing stronghold in the heart of Hwange National Park, a gem of serenity and luxury, accommodation to beat all safari camps in Zimbabwe. As its name suggests, Somalisa Acacia Camp nestles tranquilly in a grove of acacia trees on the extensive floodplains of Hwange National Park and is completely focused on the family.

Only 2 family tents and 2 luxury sail tents peep out from this shady haven – the family tents feature walkways between parents’ and children’s sections, both with bathrooms en suite, and on raised decks to take in the views of this magical setting. Children will revel in every moment here, watching wildlife at the waterhole nearby, including buffalo herds, kudu, zebra, giraffe and elephants. Sit up at night to listen to lions roaring and owls tooting and play in the splash pool by day. 

The best part of any safari in Hwange is the game drives and here, family-friendly guides are passionate about showing kids and parents everything there is to know about wildlife and habitats in protected areas. Mind-blowing bush safaris highlight the birds, and the biodiversity of the region, in the Somalisa private concession and in Hwange itself. 

The tented suites at Somalisa Acacia Camp include a small wood fire for wintry nights, fans for hot days, indoor and outdoor showers, and deep copper bathtubs with views of the vegetation beyond. Chat around the bar later with other families, read a book on the sun deck and gather for delicious meals made alfresco to keep on game viewing and delighting in the sensory explosion around you.



Discover a fantastic hideout in nature at Somalisa Acacia Camp, a tiny camp made for children and their parents, to bond and learn, to have fun and to BE in the nature provided by this fantastic Hwange National Park setting in Zimbabwe. Under a cooling canopy of typical acacia trees, this is an elephants’ playground too, so camp revellers can sit and watch these huge grey mammals for hours as they visit and interact at the waterhole nearby.

This is a small camp, allowing small children to run free and get the attention they need, while adults chill out on the swimming pool deck, or grab a drink in the lounge and dining room areas, open to the wilds, the birds and the other creatures always in the zone. 

Two large family tents offer a walkway between the children’s and adults’ rooms with showers on each side, lovely private decks and more. Two sail tents are there for other guests in their own private spaces and all tents are decorated in the best natural materials and ethnic designs to enhance the safari of the moment.

Guides are passionate about children who can kick off their shoes and be wild. Guides teach and guide and inspire on educational bush walks, birding safaris and game drives. Exciting art and cooking classes inspire the children to learn more about what the wilderness offers people in terms of natural resources.
