The luxurious Somalisa Camp is found in Zimbabwe’s Big 5 Hwange National Park, dubbed the “Land of the Giants” for its large resident elephant herds. The camp is tucked away on an acacia island on the edge of a flood plain, and provides its guests with stunning views of the surrounding wilderness. It provides luxury accommodation for a classic safari experience. The camp is made up of just seven luxury “Sail” tents, each stunningly designed and with a host of facilities. These include en-suite bathrooms, both indoor and outdoor showers and elegant copper bathtubs. There are fireplaces for the winter and overhead fans for the summer. The camp’s main area consists of a deck with a dining and lounge area; there is also a pool that overlooks a waterhole that is frequented by wildlife. The camp is therefore the perfect place to kick back and drink in the sights and sounds of the African wilderness. Activities on offer at Somalisa include day and night drives, as well as guided walks led by experienced professionals. Guests can expect encounters with a range of wildlife species, including lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, sable antelope, wildebeest, leopard, hyena and the endangered roan antelope.
