Welcome to Camelthorn Lodge

Camelthorn Lodge
This flag ship 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 centre piece a huge ancient Camelthorn tree. 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. 
8 forest villas: 82 m sq flat roof with stone walls
Outdoor maisonette with hammocks – ideal for a siesta or a night ‘under the stars’. Accessed via a spiral stairway
Large bedroom and lounge area with large sliding glass doors and overhead fans and fireplace
