Somalisa Camp is one of those jewels you find when you are organising your trip into Africa and then you find that one place – the exceptional setting is just perfect in the heart of the vast and wild Hwange National Park of Zimbabwe. We love Somalisa for its warm hospitality and elegant facilities, providing all visitors with a special touch despite being out there in the wildest of Africa.
As far as Hwange National Park lodges go, this one wins first prize for its rustic chic design with a small cooling splash pool also loved by thirsty elephants and plenty of deck space from which to watch all game roaming around and through the camp, drinking at the waterhole. Note that Somalisa is a multi-award winning destination for Leading Tented Safari Camp in Zimbabwe so you cannot go wrong with this awesome accommodation in the bush!
In addition, Somalisa is renowned for the majestic elephants that wander through it and this concession on the edge of Hwange is also private enough for guests to be alone with such beautiful creatures. Family safaris to Zimbabwe are best spent here, where only 6 delightful tents nestle in the shade under typical acacia trees, raised on wooden decks with infinite views of the nearby waterhole and undulating floodplains.
Each canvas suite boasts large carved wooden beds with views, old-fashioned desks as in the traditional long-ago safari days, innovative outdoor bucket showers and elegant vintage additions to add character and colour. View wildlife all day from your private deck and enjoy meeting other guests later at the central bar, dining area and lounge, all mostly al fresco to merge with the pristine environment around the camp.
Game drives into Hwange reveal astounding sightings of hyena, rare sable, roan and even packs of wild dogs on the move. Coffee drives at sunrise catch lions on the hunt and herds moving to waterholes while sundowner drives at dusk show guests the nocturnal animals appearing from their hiding places such as leopards, antbears and jackals.
Return at night to eat mouth-watering Zimbabwean dishes at a long table on the deck then chat for hours under the stars around the fire. Choose Somalisa for its return to the good things in life, to its connection with the wilderness and its respect for all wild things. Voyage2Africa takes you there in style!
