This award winning, tented camp is located in a private concession in the heart of Hwange National Park where guests can enjoy walking safaris, day and night game drives, bird watching and cultural visits, all led by qualified and passionate guides. Wildlife sightings include elephant, kudu, sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hyena, and many other wildlife species.
One of the highlights of this camp is the elephant pool located in front of the main deck, where you can enjoy a drink whilst you observe these beautiful creatures coming to drink.
A full solar power farm and water purity system allow the camp to recycle 80% water used, Somalisa Camp leads the way in eco-friendly safari accommodation and has been awarded the first GOLD Green Tourism Certification in Zimbabwe.
At Somalisa Camp you arrive as a guest, but you leave as part of the family.
The African Bush Camps Foundation believes in creating a longlasting, positive impact on the local communities. This is achieved by partnering with these communities to uplift their circumstances through tourism. The ABCF started out in the Dete, Mambanje and Hwange Main Camp communities boarding Hwange National Park. Within these communities, the Foundation focuses on Education, Conservation, Community Infrastructure and Community Empowerment. A visit to these communities takes a day and needs to be booked in advance, however, it is a rewarding day that is worth the trip.
