Sitting Area Somalisa Camp Hwange
The camp comprises seven spacious tented rooms each set on a large area of teak decking which extends to form a wide veranda at the front, where you can relax in comfortable chairs in privacy and enjoy uninterrupted views to a waterhole and across the bush.

Each room has an en-suite bathroom, proper beds and safari furniture and the camp provides guests with the sense that they are in an adventurous environment yet with a good degree of comfort.
This extends to the standard of cuisine and the large decking area with its lounge and pool where you can watch elephant, giraffe, antelope and other creatures whilst taking a dip between safaris.

Somalisa’s expert guides take you on safari by open vehicle; both during the day and after dark with a spotlight and you can also enjoy walks escorted by an armed guard and game viewing from hides.
