Excellent 5.0 / 5
Experiencing African wildlife in best comfort

Urs L, Switzerland - October 2023

We spent 5 days in Somalisa Acacia camp. The experience we made was one of the best of our life! You cannot be closer to African wildlife than in this camp. The rooms are fantastic, the food is excellent and most of all, the people in the camp are just overwhelming. The name of our host was „Star“ and she truly deserves this name! She and the entire team do everything to make the customer experience an unforgettable one. I would not know what more I could have asked for!

Fantastic and Luxurious Camp !!

NagarajTaware, India - September 2023

This is my second stay with African Bush Camps, I must admit they some of the best camps across Africa. Stayed in Somalisa Acacia Camp for 3 nights, it was an amazing experience. The Camp location in Hwange National Park(HNP) is one the best, it is perfect blend of Bush and open plains. Hwange is paradise for Elephant lovers, with over 40000 elephants. you can see hundreds of elephants visiting waterhole facing the lounge area. Our Guide Mike was extraordinary with an amazing knowledge of flora ...

Just wonderful
