Set in a private concession in the heart of the Hwange National Park, Somalisa Camp is a luxury tented camp offering adventure and relaxation in Zimbabwe. Known as the ‘home of the elephants’, this intimate hideaway is the perfect escape for guests seeking an experience of a lifetime in the African bush.

Property Details

Each of Somalisa’s seven canvas tents is decorated to tell the story of Africa from its ancient roots to its colonial opulence. Each tent boasts en-suite bathrooms with a stunning copper bath and alfresco bush shower. The use of solar lighting ensures optimal comfort without interfering with the environment and the area’s natural surroundings, while private viewing decks look out on the famous floodplains of the Kennedy Vlei line.

The facilities of Somalisa Camp are connected by a network of wide elephant paths, which lead guests to the camp’s main area where they can indulge in a bit of reading at the library, relaxing at the sitting area, or lounging by the swimming pool. The swimming pool and shared main areas boast the best view of the pan and are known to draw large herds of elephants who have attempted to claim this spot as their own.

At Somalisa, guests sample delicious organic cuisine prepared in a traditional gourmet fashion accompanied by the finest South African and Australian wines. Inspired by meals of the Far East, Europe, and Africa, dishes are a symphony of new and delicious flavors. Reconnect with nature and the wild on a walking game drive where elephants, zebras, giraffes, white rhinos, lions, and many other wildlife species roam free. Be led through the bush by experienced, passionate guides and see all that Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve has to offer from the camp where nature comes to life.
