There are eight spacious and airy thatched and canvas chalets, well-spaced and all looking towards the waterhole. Comfortable, unpretentious and tasteful, they epitomize the tented safari experience. Each chalet is furnished with stylish simplicity and includes en-suite facilities boasting a huge walk-in shower; fold down canvas blinds for uninterrupted views from the bed and bathroom (except for mosquito netting) and a large surrounding area at ground level. With a well thought out design, the camp is on the same level everywhere. There is a beautifully expansive and open-canvas mess area which opens onto the camp fire space (the heart of safari life), and the waterhole beyond.
Thatched and canvas chalets
Open all year with the exception of some months during heavy rainfall
With walking guide extraordinaire Dave Carson at the helm Camp Hwange is one of the top walking camps in Zimbabwe. However, it is by no means exclusively a walking experience and game drives traverse scenically beautiful areas of the Park. Guiding is exceptional and kids are welcomed with the guides adapting to give them a memorable safari experience (minimum age 12 years for walking). Waterhole levels vary hugely in Hwange depending on the season, and can either be pan sized or a small, pumped drinking hole. January and February are the wettest months and the camp closes periodically over this time, when birding takes preference over the big game.
