Super Somalisa

Somalisa is a very good camp, well run by Manager and Head Guide Dudley and the camp manager Henrietta. We were able to do guided walks every day of our stay as well as game drives.

Given the time of year (ie wet season) and the nature of some of the terrain around the camp, mammal sightings required some patience: but we were still able to enjoy two great dog sightings, quality time with a pride of 19 lions and sables as well as plentiful elephant and buffalo: other guests staying at the camp while we were there saw leopard, cheetah, rhion and roan antelope.

We understand that the camp is having a significant makeover in February/March so would expect an even higher standard in the 2011 season.

Somalisa Camp review

It would have been good to know that this was a 2 hour drive from the park entrance!

Remote, undisturbed, extremely friendly, rustic, Dardley was a wonderful guide, superb food, easy going, accommodating.

Not an abundance of 'big' wildlife but suite our needs perfectly - tons of spottings of new and interesting things for both our guide and us, including yellow tailed kites catching mating frogs and 5 leopard tortoises trying to mate with one another!

We were the only people here for 4 nights - magical! I just felt sad that hundreds of people thought Chobe was the place to be, when they were so obviously missing out on this wonderful place.

Go to Somalisa; great little camp

Lovely intimate camp in Hwange. Lots of elephants in camp as well as a cute pack of dwarf mongoose.

The staff were a highlight and gave the camp a considerable measure of charm. Attentive but not over-bearing, flexible and entertaining. Dudley was an excellent guide and Henrietta a charming hostess. We would certainly recomend the camp to anyone looking for a really nice place to stay in this part of Zimbabwe.

Really good food and plenty of game although a paucity of big cats. But some lovely elephants (drinking in the swimming pool) as well as some unusual sightings such as bat eared foxes.
