Somalisa Expeditions

Somalisa Expeditions is set in the heart of Hwange National Park and offers one of the most authentic ways to experience what is known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds.

Nestled under an incredible grove of Acacias, along the edge of a seasonal flood plain, and situated in the heart of Zimbabwe’s largest and ‘most loved’ national park. Somalisa Expeditions is an experience of the original, authentic safari experience in this part of the continent.

Consisting of six elegantly furnished, pristine Serengeti-style tents, each tent has en suite bathroom facilities including flush toilets and running water. Somalisa Expeditions’ main area includes a lounge and dining area on raised decking which overlooks a small pool, which elephants have become habituated to drinking out of.  Add to this, the water hole is frequently used as a ‘mud-bath’ and a popular rendezvous for the elephants. 

Activities include guided walks lead by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, game drives and night drives. Wildlife sightings include elephant, kudu, sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hyena and many other wildlife species.
