At Camelthorn you will be treated to a truly memorable safari experience, in pure comfort and style. Enjoy al fresco dining under the ancient camelthorn tree, savour your morning coffee in front of a roaring fire, track herds of elephant by foot, and enjoy close up photography from inside our look-up blind. A flagship lodge that ticks all the boxes for your authentic African safari experience.


Camelthorn is situated in one of Hwange’s last remaining well-protected and un-spoilt acacia woodlands, on the southern edge of Ngamo’s famous Plains. Camelthorm can be reached by a 1-hour small plane charter from Victoria Falls or Bulawayo or a 4-hour road transfer from Victoria Falls or Bulawayo.

Lodge Facilities:

The centre piece of the main lodge is a huge ancient Camelthorn tree that spans a 35-metre outdoor dining area.


The woodlands surrounding our forest villas is dotted with small water baths that attract some of the smaller and less destructive woodland creatures - bushbuck, mongoose, squirrels and an abundance of interesting and colourful birdlife.

Less than a kilometre away from the lodge and inside Hwange National Park, we have built an underground blind in front of a beautifully located waterhole - elephants can be photographed from toe level silhouetted against the sky at a distance of 25 feet. Such close proximity to Hwange's giants is truly breathtaking!

Our friendly and knowledgeable guides will take you on walks or drives inside this truly wild and remote region of Hwange National Park, famous for its giants, the elephants, as well as a plethora of different wildlife.

Other activities include all day ‘pump runs’, night drives and school and village visits.
