Beneath camelthorns and among elephants in Hwange


Hwange National Park is a terrain of contrasts. The rainy season sees vast expanses of seasonal floodplains dotted by flitting birdlife and large elephant groups, while the dry season sees competition abound between grazers and the predators who hunt them around water sources. Camelthorn Lodge, resting in the shade of acacias and camelthorn trees, gives guests an intimate look into life on the southern edge of the Ngamo plains.
 
Hwange is Zimbabwe’s oldest and largest national park. Found along the road between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls and spanning across approximately 1.4-million hectares, the park is home to over 100 different animal species and 400 different bird species—although its fame is more often attributed to its magnificent elephant population thought to reach 44,000 in number.
 
Camelthorn’s main lodge is centred on an ancient tree of the same name which dominates its outdoor deck area. Tired from a day spent on safari, night drives, bush walks, village visits, and ‘pump runs’? Retire to any of Camelthorn’s 8 Forest Villas—each boasting en suite bathrooms, a fireplace, ground level deck, and an upstairs outdoor maisonette.
