Luxurious Accommodation

Just because you are in Africa, it doesn't mean you always have to stay in rustic accommodation! After a few days in the bush, perhaps even in a tent, it is very nice to treat oneself occasionally and enjoy the advantages of civilization before returning to the bush or boarding the plane home. It can also be very pleasant to acclimatise in a luxurious environment at the beginning of the trip, before heading out on safari! On the following pages you will find a collection of 4 and 5 star hotels and lodges that, each in their own way, have a special ambience and offer unobtrusive luxury.

Victoria Falls Hotel

Situated directly opposite the railway station, this is the oldest and most historic hotel in Victoria Falls. From the veranda you have a stunning view over the famous bridge across the Gorge and the spray of the Falls is very prominently visible from here.

The Hide Safari Camp

Deep in the park, The Hide Safari Camp is situated on a private concession area. The drive from Main Camp to the lodge takes about 1.5 to 2 hours on a gravel road, but getting there is usually already a game drive in itself. From Main Camp you drive through the teak forests at times, then again you carry on past grassy open plains. The lodge is situated in the park near Kennedy vlei and not very far from Ngweshla Pan, a waterhole that is very popular with animals and visitors alike. All tents and bedrooms in Tom's Little Hide have en-suite WC and shower, some have additional outdoor showers under the stars or a bathtub, ceiling fan, electric current. Many rooms have a view of the waterhole. In addition, you can sleep in "The Dove's Nest" tree house in the bush for 2 people only. Tom's Little Hide is ideal for small groups and families and is booked only as an entire camp. It is ideal for up to 6 adults and 4 children. Children of all ages are welcome here.

Somalisa Camp

Somalisa Camp is located deep within Hwange National Park on a private concession area. The camp is shaded by huge acacia trees next to the Kennedy Vlei. From Main Camp, the drive into the Park to the lodge will take you about 2 hours, but it will certainly never get boring because the journey will be your first game drive. All tents have their own en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, bathtub and a wood stove for the cold season.

Somalisa Acacia is situated directly next door to Somalisa, offers the same standards of accommodation and service but has only 4 tents of which 2 are specially made for families and are particularly spacious.

Somalisa  Expeditions is a little further away from Somalisa Camp and is meant to be a little more rustic with 7 East African style tents and en-suite bush-bathrooms.
