The mighty Victoria Falls, watching wildlife congregate on the banks of the Zambezi River; there are plenty of wondrous reasons to choose Zimbabwe as your next safari destination – especially true now that a pair of Zimbabwean safari camps has undergone a rebuild.
Somalisa Camp and Somalisa Acacia both recently reopened after a major nip and tuck, emerging with a new look, new and larger lounge areas, plunge pools and viewing decks adjacent to popular watering holes for local elephants, buffalo and a host of predators. Guests at Somalisa Camp now have the pick of seven modern Sail Tents with sliding gauze doors overlooking the scenic Kennedy vlei-line in Hwange National Park.
With a glass-cased wood-burning fireplace, overhead fan, and en suite bathroom facilities with indoor and outdoor showers and a vintage, copper slipper-style bathtub, these are no ordinary tents. The nearby Somalisa Acacia has two new Family Unit Sail Tents with an interleading walkway under canvas, as well as two Sail Tents with identical facilities.
Scott Dunn offers tailor-made itineraries to Zimbabwe that include a stay at Somalisa Camp from AED 17,000 AED per person – based on two people travelling and including Emirates flights from Dubai and private transfers.
