A traditional, owner run bush camp in the northern sector of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, Camp Hwange is situated in a 2,700 hectare private concession on the edge of a teak forest beside a well-used waterhole. From the rooms and the main lodge, guests can enjoy excellent views of the open savannah in the largest national park in the country.
Accommodation & Facilities
Camp Hwange has eight canvas and thatch chalets, well-spaced out around the permanent waterhole. Each spacious chalet is furnished with stylish simplicity and has an en-suite bathroom with flush loo and hot water showers. The main lodge houses a large lounge with a restaurant and comfortable seating areas, and a fireplace outside.
Wildlife & Activities
Widely regarded as one of southern Africa’s premier wildlife havens, Hwange is known as the ‘land of the giants’ due to its large elephant herds. Activities here revolve around wildlife viewing in open 4×4 vehicles and walking safaris with the camp’s superb guides. It is common to see vast herds of buffalo and elephant, lion, zebra, warthog, waterbuck, roan antelope, and a stunning array of bird life here. Sundowners beside one of the nearby waterholes are a wonderful finale to a day in the bush here.
