Introduction

Located on a private concession deep within the heart of Hwange National Park, Somalisa Camp and Somalisa Acacia, can offer some of the best game viewing opportunities within the park. After a 4-5 hour road transfer from Victoria Falls or a 40-minute charter flight, you will find yourself indulging in the simple luxuries these two camps have to offer.

Both of the camps are nested under a beautiful grove of Acacia trees, allowing some spectacular views across the plains in front of camp. Somalisa Camp, the larger of the two, has 7 luxury en-suite tents all with their own simple luxuries, making these tents more than comfortable. The main area offers all that you could need including a small plunge pool over looking the bustling waterhole, which is the main focus of the camp.

Somalisa Acacia is a more intimate camp with only 4 luxury tents on low wooden platforms, these are no less luxurious than the other camp. A smaller waterhole, which often becomes very busy in the dry season, is positioned perfectly in front of the small but appealing main area.

The two camps are next to each other and therefore provide the same activities. Game Drives through the private concession, night drives, safari walks, and game viewing from the hide are all on offer to you, and should keep you more than occupied throughout the day. However if you choose to relax in camp, you can take advantage of the comfort of the rooms or watch the game wandering through, to and from the waterhole.

Our Opinion

Somalisa Camp and Somalisa Acacia are located in a great game viewing area, especially for elephant, and provides intimate safari in the heart of Hwange. These camps can easily be paired with one of the other 'African Bush Camps' Lodges within Zimbabwe (Mana Pools and Kariba) or Botswana (Linyati and Khwai) rounding off a nice safari getaway in some of the most productive game viewing areas in Southern Africa.

Summary

The varying seasons in Hwange will have a huge impact on your wallet and Safari experience.

The Green season (rainy season) will see incredible bird and insect life but reduced animal sightings. However lodge prices in most cases are dramatically reduced offering really good value.

The High season (dry season) is when animals congregate in vast numbers around the waterholes and National Geographic type scenes are commonplace. This is peak season and lodge prices escalate substantially.

Please feel free to contact us with details of your preferences and allow us the opportunity to discuss which time of year is going to suit you best.

**NB** Hwange Lodges in the peak season get over booked, it is advisable to plan and book well in advance to ensure you get what you want.

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.
