Introduction

There aren't many safari camps in the north western section of Hwange National Park. Robins Camp is one of those few, situated in the rugged Basalt area, which is rich in natural water with seeps and springs dotting the area. This area is home to some of the last great buffalo herds in Africa, with herds of over 2000 still seen.

Given the abundance of prey animals, it is no wonder that it also has the highest concentration of lion in the Park. Robins is also known for big populations of reedbuck, roan, sable and tsessebe as well as the usual herds of elephants and other species encountered in the Park. Particularly encouraging are the regular sightings of both cheetah and African wild dog.

The scenery of Robins is varied with hills, kopjes (small bouldered hills) and vlei (grassed plains that flood seasonally) areas and has a lot to offer the wildlife enthusiast.

Getting to Robins Camp is a quick 20-minute flight, or a 2-hour drive from Victoria Falls. From Bulawayo, it is a 430km drive or about an hour's flight.

The chalets at Robins Camp have been decorated inside and out by local designers with hand painted Matabele designs, and using recycled products and fabrics. Each of them has an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold water and high pressure showers, an overhead fan for hot Hwange days, and a mosquito net. The chalets can be configured to suite your needs as king or twin units.

The Acacia chalets are in the western section of Robins camp, and consist of 18 thatched units. Eight of the Acacia rooms form a laager around a central lapa area that is a wonderful spot to relax and chat with friends. These Acacia chalets are great for private groups of up to 40 guests, and three of them are actually triple units - suitable for family stays.

The other 18 chalets are the Mopane units which are in the eastern portion of Robins Camp. These are more contemporary in design and only two units are under thatch - the rest have cromadek roofing. Each of the Mopane units have a covered veranda where you may sit and enjoy watching the birds, squirrels and mongooses.

The facilities at Robins camp situated in the central guest area include a semi-open restaurant, which offers a full continental and cooked breakfast service as well an a la carte and buffet lunch. The dinner service at the restaurant is a set 3 course buffet. Also outside the covered restaurant is a spacious garden with seating for those who want to enjoy their meals al fresco. All dietary requirements can be catered for. There is a coffee, tea and juice station at your disposal throughout the day with something sweet served every late afternoon. The view point above the restaurant is a nice spot for drinks while you take in the vista or just want a quiet beverage.

In the area in front of the restaurant is the swimming pool, also a great place to cool down with your drinks under the shade. The swimming pool is crisp and crystal clear, no better way to beat the African heat.

The Hyena Bar is great for those evening catch-ups after a day of game viewing. The bar is not open to guests under the age of 18.

Robins campsite offers shared ablution facilities, with hot and cold water showers. It is secured with electric fencing, and so makes for comfortable camping for the whole  family. Campers also enjoy full access to all the facilities that Robins camp has to offer, including the pool, bar, restaurant and a scenic viewing point to relax and take in the flora and fauna. Most campsites have their own dedicated 220V power supply.

Robins Camp offers full board rates which include accommodation and meals only, as well as full board plus activities. This is for the chalet accommodation. The activities offered are game drives, guided walking safaris and birding.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
