Your Private Safari Camp in Hwange, Zimbabwe
Positioned alongside the famous Somalisa Camp, known as ‘the home of the elephants’, this charming camp caters for an intimate gathering of only 8 people. All the simple but luxurious tents are on slightly raised decks, under the dappled canopy of a grove of Acacias on the western side of Somalisa.
The camp enjoys its own private views of a small water hole, frequented by large herds of big game including buffalo, elephant, kudu, zebra, giraffe, and even lion. A small splash pool allows you to cool off during the heat of the day. Activities on offer are game drives and walking excursions with the camp’s professional guides. Most of the activities are in the Somalisa private concession but with easy access to other parts of Hwange National Park.
Somalisa Acacia has 3 twin bedded tents and 1 family tent, all with en-suite bathroom facilities. It also has its own dining and lounge area. A private guide and tour leader facility is available on special request.
On special request Somalisa Acacia can be booked in conjunction with Somalisa Camp to cater for larger groups of up to 20 people.
