Somalisa Camp is located within the famous Hwange National Park and known for its abundant elephant and predator sightings.  Hwange is the perfect safari destination during the dry season (April – October) when spotting of animals is easier.  However, for keen birders the wet season is an absolute must as approximately 500 bird species can be found within the park.
