Best Places To Stay On Safari In Hwange

For such a huge park, Hwange has great concerntrations of wildlife as in the dry season the lack of main water source means the waterholes are packed with thirsty animals. The landscape is varying and interesting, with a dense teak forest in one direction and the classic African picture of acacia dotted plains to the other, which also means a more diverse spectrum of species. 

Linkwasha Camp

Wilderness Safari’s newly opened Linkwasha Camp, built on the private Linkwasha concession in the south west of Hwange National Park, close to the famed Ngamo Plains and overlooking a waterhole, which offers fantastic all year game viewing.
This new camp has a modern, fresh design with contemporary interiors but still keeping with the original spirit of a safari lodge. The eight luxury tents look out towards the waterhole and ever present game, with the main area having multiple decks, a pool and a winter lounge complete with library.

Little Makalolo Camp

Little Makalolo lies in one of Hwange’s most ecologically-diverse areas, ensuring both variety and numbers of animals year round. A large number of waterholes attracts game from far and wide, and with one in front of camp, wildlife activity can be enjoyed from your breakfast table or from the camp’s log-pile hide. Game drives, walks and cultural activities sometimes end at our “pizza stop” at Madison Pan, where a Star Bed is ready for your sleep out under the stars.

The Hide

The Hide has consistently been voted one of the “Best Tented Safari Camp in Zimbabwe”, and in our view it remains one of the best lodges in Hwange. It is also one of the few lodges actually inside the National Park, with just 10 tents, it’s small and intimate and now beautifully renovated.

Davisons Camp

This camp is rather rustic and lacks many of the mod cons. The water hole is a hive of game activity which most of the tents overlook. There are few camps that you can watch such an abundance of game right from your tent veranda.

Davisons Camp lies deep in Hwange National Park, in the south-eastern Linkwasha Concession - one of the best game viewing areas of the entire Park. It is a classic African tented camp, with the units tastefully hidden beneath a grove of false mopane trees, overlooking a waterhole and open plain.
