Accommodation: Somalisa Camp
Your African safari starts in Hwange National Park where you will get to explore the ultimate elephant empire. In the heart of this pristine park is Somalisa Camp, 45-minute flight from Victoria Falls Airport followed by a 30-minute transfer. Zimbabwean guides are recognized as being amongst the best in Africa. Walking safaris were perfected in Hwange and Somalisa’s guides offer guests the opportunity to view wildlife close up on foot.
Your haven for the first three nights is this elegant and authentic safari camp tucked away on a remote island of acacia trees within an ancient floodplain. Somalisa Camp offers elegantly furnished tents equipped with a private viewing deck and an en suite bathroom boasting superb views over the savannah.
Built around an elephant drinking hole, the camp is visited frequently by these gentle giants as well as other wildlife, offering the ultimate ‘armchair’ safari experience.
Look forward to personal touches and experience true romance in the bush. After a venturesome first three nights, it’s time to say goodbye to Hwange. A 30-minute transfer back to Manga Airstrip sees you boarding the flight over to the next leg of your trip.
