Deteema Springs Camp sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Deteema Springs in the rugged north region of Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest wildlife reserve. The camp is set within a grove of trees and large shrubs, allowing it to blend in to its environment.
Accommodation & Facilities
Deteema Springs has eight traditional Meru safari tents, with authentic furnishings and decor. The tents, one of which has space for a family, are positioned well apart among the rocks and trees on raised wooden decks, and linked to the mess tent by walkways. The tents have en-suite bathrooms with flushing loos and hot showers, shaded verandahs, and spacious bedrooms. The camp has a large mess tent with a dining room, lounge and library, and a pool on the adjacent deck.
Wildlife & Activities
The wildlife viewing at Deteema Springs is excellent, thanks to the year round water supply from the springs or seeps in front of the camp. Elephant are seen in large numbers, here and at the nearby dam, and lion, buffalo, zebra, kudu, giraffe, wildebeest, and occasionally leopard and wild dog are also seen in the area. Shared wildlife drives and excellent walking safaris are on offer here, and the verandahs on each tent also provide good views of the regular visitors to the springs themselves.
