Situated on the eastern side of Hwange National Park, Somalisa Camp is a small, authentic bushcamp which lies amongst a grove of camelthorn acacias. An ancient, dried-up watercourse known as the Sumamalisa Vlei stretches across the face of the camp and provides a great place to view the large herds of elephant for which Hwange National Park has become famous.

Our view of Somalisa Camp

Somalisa is a classic camp where the simple things that give it its ambience are done to a very high standard. We love the fact that there’s no electricity at night, because the paraffin lanterns work so well and the bedside battery-powered light gives enough light to read by, leaving only the sounds of the bush. Not having running cold and hot water really adds to the authenticity of Somalisa, with minimal loss of comfort as the bucket showers are huge and there’s always plenty of water to fill the wash-basin. It’s because these simple features are so well managed that Somalisa is such a top-notch camp.
