Camelthorn: Our full report

All year

Camelthorn is a brand new camp due to open for the first time in mid-2013. It is situated in one of the more remote corners – at the extreme south-east Hwange National Park.

Hwange is the largest game park in Zimbabwe and is particularly well known for its large elephant populations. There is also a huge diversity of both flora and fauna due to the vast size of the park, offering great game viewing opportunities.

Camelthorn is currently still under construction and none of the Expert Africa team have had the chance to visit it yet. However, we’re told that the activities available from Camelthorn will be similar to those offered by the other lodges in the area. This means that game drives, both day and night, as well as walking safaris should be possible.

As soon as we have more information on this lodge, this page will be updated.
