Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Tucked away on an acacia island in Hwange National Park, the award winning Somalisa Camp is a very warm and inviting luxury tented camp. The rich décor, gourmet cuisine, luxurious main deck and spacious tents really make for a cosy and comfortable stay where you’ll surely fall in love with the camp and its surroundings.
There are seven tents altogether, all very spacious with gauze sliding doors, an indulgent bathtub, and a wood burner fireplace for cooler evenings. The mix of contemporary, modern furnishings and more rustic touches create the perfect harmony between luxury and authenticity.
The main lounge and dining areas are extremely charming and welcoming, with cosy sofas, hanging chairs, and a myriad of cool African patterns – even the billowy canvas ceilings are vibrant and decorative. Outside, the two-tiered decking area is perfect for mingling with other travellers, and the small splash pool situated only metres from a waterhole offers incredible wildlife sightings.
There is plenty of amazing wildlife roaming the surrounding plains, including elephant, wildebeest, gemsbok, lion and hyena, and the exciting activities here give you ample chance of spotting them all.
