CAMELTHORN LODGE, Hwange
Activities: day and night game drives, game walks, village visits
Camelthorn is situated in one of Hwange’s last remaining well-protected and un-spoilt acacia woodlands. The lodge is on a private concession bordering the South Eastern corner of Hwange National Park at the edge of Ngamo’s famous Plains.
Accommodation consists of eight villas. Each villa features a fireplace, private ground level deck, upstairs outdoor maisonette with hammock and a day bed. The en-suite bathrooms overlook the surrounding woodland with a bath and shower.
The woodlands surrounding the villas are dotted with small water baths attracting woodland creatures such as bush buck, mongooses and an abundance of interesting and colorful bird life. There is an underground hide by a waterhole less than a kilometer away where elephants can be photographed from toe level. Being at such close proximity to these giants is truly breathtaking!
