Award Winning Tented Camp in the Heart of Hwange National Park.
Somalisa Tented Camp is set in the heart of Zimbabwe’s flagship reserve, Hwange National Park and is known for its enormous elephant herds. Nestled in a stunning location tucked away on an acacia island, along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain, Somalisa Tented Camp offers gorgeous views and authentic bush sophistication.
Off-the-beaten track, the recently rebuilt eco-friendly camp is built on a split-level wooden deck overlooking the famous Kennedy vlei line. Remote and romantic, there are only seven luxurious customised tents, each with a private viewing deck, luxurious en suite bathroom (can you say ‘tub with a view’!), indoor and outdoor shower, and a lounge area with a wood-burning fireplace for chilly nights.
Sonatas Camp, Lounge
Somalisa Tented Camp is the perfect place to take in the majesty of Hwange, and to find inspiration, rest and rejuvenation in the heart of some of Africa’s most remote wilderness. Built around an elephant drinking hole, the camp is visited by these grey giants frequently, as well as by a plethora of other wildlife, making Somalisa an excellent destination for an ‘armchair safari’. Whether you’re lounging next to the camp’s pool, or relaxing on your private deck, you’re bound to see something coming silently down to the waterhole to drink.
