LET'S START PLANNING

Is the Camelthorn Lodge for Me?

This flagship lodge is nestled in a patch of pristine woodland just west of Ngamo on the edge of the South Eastern corner of Hwange National Park.

The lodge is unique in its style and design and has as its centrepiece a huge ancient Camelthorn tree.

The lodge is a true partnership with the surrounding community and was built on their land and almost everyone that works for us there comes from the local community nearby.

On the edge of the Ngamo Plain, and strategically placed to explore the remote and unspoilt south eastern portion of the park, Camelthorn will also provide a spectacular wilderness experience.

Less than a kilometre away from the lodge we have built an underground blind in front of a beautifully located waterhole in the park.

Camouflaged as a termite heap and buried under an ancient Mitswiri tree – the photographic opportunities from it are dramatic.

Elephants can be photographed from toe level silhouetted against the sky at a distance of 25 feet – and such close proximity to Hwange’s huge bulls is honestly breath-taking.
