Camelthorn Lodge

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe


Stay at Camelthorn Lodge

Camelthorn Lodge is a new flag ship lodge which 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 it’s style and design and is named after it’s centre piece – a huge, ancient Camelthorn tree. Camelthorn provides a spectacular wilderness experience.

Camelthorn’s 8 unique villas quietly nestle in one of Hwange’s last untouched corners of real woodland wilderness.

Deep in amongst the camel thorn and ebony trees this new lodge offers huge glass fronted views, overlooking a large permanent waterhole and bird feeders that attracts some of

the smaller and less destructive woodland creatures; bush buck, duiker, mongoose and squirrel, not to mention a plethora of colourful bird life.

Each individual luxurious villa is topped off with a private outdoor maisonette where you can soak up the suns rays, or even sleep out under the stars.

Hwange’s is famous for its elephant, and there is a private underground blind where guests are able to sit and relax whilst observing the drinking wildlife up close.

Jen & George

We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
