About 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.

Location

Hwange National Park at 14,550 sq km, it's one of Africa's great Parks and is home to over 100 species of mammals, including nineteen large herbivore and eight large carnivore species, and nearly 400 species of birds. Hwange is elephant country and much of the game viewing relates to magnificent opportunities to view these, the largest land mammals, in a completely wide state. The lodge estate lies within the Tsholotsho communal area and is directly linked with local communities to make this a true eco-tourism lodge.
