Situated in a remote spot beside the extreme south-east corner of Hwange National Park, Camelthorn Lodge is one of the newer camps in this region of Zimbabwe, opened in 2014. Hidden in a forest of mature camelthorn, which soon gives way to open plains and a network of waterholes, the camp is well situated for game viewing, and is only a ten-minute drive from the national park.
Our view of Camelthorn
The remote location of Camelthorn makes this a real favourite of ours, with good game densities on the nearby Ngamo Plains. The camp has a very solid structure, and though it’s well designed, it certainly won’t suit those looking for a bushcamp. The guiding team is very experienced and knowledgeable and the variety of activities is diverse. We particularly like the camp's unique sunken hide, and the opportunity to take part in a pump run where you will help with the upkeep of southern Hwange's waterholes.
