Verney’s Camp

Verney's - a legendary safari camp in Hwange

There is a legendary safari camp in Hwange National Park Zimbabwe called Verney’s Camp, named after Verney’s Pan, an astounding water hole located in a vast floodplain rimmed with ancient teak and mopane forests. These Machaba Safari tents nestle in their own 10 000 ha concession in a remote south eastern part of the Park, allowing visitors to Verney’s Camp infinite space and privacy. 

Welcome to a thrilling safari in the heart of Hwange Game Reserve, an affordable Zimbabwean luxury vacation with Machaba Safaris to see the famous elephant herds and the beautiful landscapes like no other. Stay in 8 lavish tented suites (and 2 family suites) under the teak trees with en suite showers, rustic finishes, double beds, lovely chairs on the private decks and quality natural décor.  

Guests wander down the neat pathways to spend much time at the main lodge enjoying the chandeliers, comfy pastel shaded couches and armchairs, books and magazines strewn everywhere to create a sense of homeliness and entertainment in reading. Beautiful colourful rugs and African artefacts encourage that ‘at home’ feeling in a chic African setting.

The waterhole is the central feature at Verney’s Camp, attracting wildlife to drink and attracting tourists to see and learn. This camp is a winning recipe for a fantastic safari in Zimbabwe, true bush camp luxury and service second to none – but the wildlife is the winner of the prize and game rangers doe their best to give everyone a good time and to educate global travellers about the importance of Africa’s biodiversity.

Overview

Recently opened under the Machaba Safaris renowned banner, Verney’s Camp is one of those awe-inspiring Zimbabwe destinations offering wildlife experiences from a unique luxury tented safari camp deep in the forests of Hwange National Park. 

Situated on its own private concession of some 10 000 ha, Verney’s Camp is the perfect choice for big five safaris in Hwange – both day and night drives show guests a pristine wilderness where predator and prey do their dance, where huge old trees create shade and the floodplains shelter myriad birds and beasts. 

This is a safari par excellence at Verney’s Camp, named after the pan near the camp, Verney’s Pan, close to a remote corner of the game reserve where no other tourists really visit. A little gem of luxury accommodation where the elephant herds tread and wildlife lovers come to get away from it all. 

We love the showers, the private decks, the double beds and the infinite views over the waterholes, teak forest and wetlands. We love the chandeliers, the colourful carpets in the central lounge and the dining room with its quality colonial style furniture and gathering place between game drives. 

It’s all tented and temporary, an eco-camp made for comfort and relaxation off the beaten track. Guests love the spa for massages and beauty treatments while the swimming pool offers constant respite from the hot days, the curio shop useful for mementos to take back home.
