OVERVIEW

FEATURES
REVIEWS
  • Camelthorn is situated in one of Hwange's last remaining well protected and un-spoilt acacia woodlands, on the edge of the South Eastern corner of Hwange National Park.  At Camelthorn you will be welcomed and treated to a truly memorable safari experience, in pure comfort and style. There are 8 luxuriously furnished forest villas that are cool in the hot months and warm and cosy in the cold months. The lodge has a huge ancient Camelthorn tree as its centre piece whose canopy spans 35-metres and covers the outdoor dining area.  Enjoy al fresco dining under this ancient Camelthorn tree, savour your morning coffee in front of a roaring fire, track herds of elephant by foot, and enjoy close-up photography from inside the look-up blind.

  • Here are a few special highlights found in Hwange that we've picked out :-
    • Zimbabwe's biggest National Park is home to big game including lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and the rare wild dog
    • Numerous waterholes in the form of open pans attract diverse species of wildlife in large numbers – a great place to be at sunset
    • Bird enthusiasts should look out for iconic species like Crowned Cranes and Secretary Birds that are often seen in Hwange
    • Private concessions and well managed public park areas mean animal sightings are not over crowded
    • Elephants can come very close to camps or lodges and sometimes can even drink from the swimming pools
  • ROOMS

    • 8 x Forest Villas. The villas have a flat roof with stone walls, attractive double height ceilings, a fireplace for winter evenings, a fan for summer days and  large glass sliding doors that open onto beautiful woodland.

    • The forest villas are spacious and private

    Adam G from Perth, Australia
    The passion the guides had for the animals was excellent to see, along with the respect they showed when approaching and tracking them.
     
    Christine B from United Kingdom
    The lodge is just perfect and the food is excellent.  Janice and her team looked after us beautifully.
     
    Caitlin S from Kansas City, Missouri
    If you are looking to be pampered in the Bush this is the place to go. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
     
    Sally S from Dalls Texas
    From the beautiful patio surrounding the Camelthorn tree that forms the focal point of this gorgeous property to the incredible local photography on the walls, open-air bar and five-star food--this lodge is truly luxury in the bush.
     
    Steve from Orlando, Florida
    This place is absolutely beautiful and the rooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable. But what makes this place very unique and special in my opinion, is the attention to detail that the staff provided us the two days we were there. When we left this place, it was like leaving our family behind.
