African Bush Camps Somalisa Expeditions
Somalisa Expeditions is set in the heart of Hwange National Park and is known as “the land of the giants” for its big elephant herds. As an exact replica of the original Somalisa Camp, Somalisa Expeditions offers one of the most authentic ways to experience this exceptional wildlife haven. The camp is nestled under an incredible grove of Acacias, along the edge of a seasonal flood plain.
Somalisa Expeditions’ main area includes a lounge and dining area on raised decking that overlooks a small pool that elephants are habituated to drinking out of. The waterhole is frequently used as a ‘mud-bath’ and a popular rendezvous for the elephants making the up-close encounters and photographic opportunities with these majestic animals endless.
There are six elegantly furnished Meru Style Tents and each tent has en-suite bathroom facilities with an outdoor feel. Activities include guided walks lead by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, game drives and night drives. Wildlife sightings include elephant, kudu, sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hyena and many other wildlife species.
