Deteema Springs Camp: Our full report
A new safari camp is currently being constructed in the rugged, mountainous terrain of Zimbabwe's Hwange ...... National Park, with Deteema Springs Camp due for completion in May 2019. With only eight tents Deteema Springs promises to be an intimate property in an isolated area of the park, aiming to deliver comfortable accommodation with a down to earth feeling.
While the more frequently visited southern end of Hwange is dominated by flat ground, open pans and sections of teak forest, the northern section of the park is much more wild and rugged with undulating terrain and far fewer camps. It's here, around the granite boulders and gnarled mopane trees that scatter the terrain, that Deteema Springs Camp is being built.
Deteema's eight safari tents are simple in style, with green canvas walls and enough room to comfortably fit in twin or double beds, and an en-suite bathroom with a flush toilet and running showers. Each are raised up on large wooden decks with views towards the Deteema Springs, a reliable water source that can attract a constant procession of wildlife during the drier months between May and November.
Activities at the camp will include morning and evening game drives as well as walking safaris.
Although we have yet to visit Deteema Springs, we have been to its sister properties in Botswana (Machaba Camp, Little Machaba and Gomoti Plains Camp) many times before and have always thoroughly enjoyed our time at these camps, so we are expecting great things from this new Hwange offering.
We've been thoroughly impressed with our experiences with Machaba Safaris' existing camps and we are very excited to see them opening new properties in remote and previously unvisited areas of Hwange. We are expecting Deteema Springs to be an excellent camp. We will keep an eye on developments and will update this page as the camp construction progresses.
