Camelthorn: picture gallery


Camelthorn is situated on the southeast edge of Hwange National Park in a private consession
Meals here are often served under the lodge's namesake tree
Camelthorn's main area consists of two wings separated by a reception area at its centre
The whole camp has a modern design complimented by traditional African decoration
One wing houses the bar area...
...which doubles as a large communal lounge
The opposite wing houses a large dining table and another lounge area
Moving away from the main area via a sandy path...
...Camlethorn's firepit juts out into the surrounding bush
The 8 villas are large, concrete and stone structures reached down more sandy paths.
Inside there is either a large double or twin beds...
There's a lounge area with a fire place...
Tea and coffee are left for guests each morning, in a cubby hole set into the wall
The en suite bathrooms are large and well appointed.
At the front of each villa is a veranda with a couple of seats...
..and up a spiral staircase...
...is a balcony with a day bed - perfect for relaxing in in the early afternoon
Game viewing in this region is very good. Camelthorn have designed their own 'look-up hide'...
...which provides great photographic opportunities of game coming down to drink at the waterhole
Continuing the inventive feel to activities at Camelthorn is The Elephant Express...
A purpose built locomotive used for both transfers and game drives at Camelthorn
It's a great way of getting out onto this old stretch of railway...
...while also relaxing and taking in the sites
