Somalisa Expeditions, owned and run by African Bush Camps is an incredible small tented camp set deep within one of the best parks in Southern Africa. This old school style camp offers an authentic safari set in a quiet area of the park amongst a grove of acacia trees on a small floodplain with a small waterhole in front of the camp that is regularly visited by roaming elephants.
Somalisa Expeditions - The Details
The main dining area is large, spacious and set out like a typical safari style mess tent with lots of dark woods and canvas. The food and service at Somalisa Expeditions is truly above and beyond what you would imagine from a simple style camp.
The camp is small, with just six Meru style tents offering an old school safari in a modern, stylish manner that provides an intimate and private stay. Each tent has its own views overlooking the floodplain, each with their own private facilities and bucket showers that add to the old school feel which gives the camp its true character.
The game viewing in the Somalisa concession is as good as it gets in Hwange, offering both day and night game drives in open sided jeeps and walking safaris are also possible.
Game viewing is best during the dry season (July-September), especially when the vegetation is at its thinnest and water is scarce.
