Somalisa Acacia

Found in a private concession in the game rich Hwange National Park, famous for its huge elephant population, Somalisa Acacia is a very small and intimate camp, with its own waterhole. The camp is best suited to small groups or families, wishing to enjoy a private safari experience. Big game often frequents the waterhole, with elephant and buffalo often paying a visit.

Somalisa Acacia offers 4 luxury tents of which 3 are standard tents (2 people in each) and 1 is a family unit with a double bed and 2 twin beds. The camp can accommodate a maximum of 10 people. Their rooms all have en-suite bathrooms, featuring flush toilets and bucket showers. Although simply furnished, tents offer a classic tented experience with strong levels of comfort.
