We have chosen to build Camelthorn Lodge in one of Hwange's last remaining corners of well-protected and un-spoilt woodlands. Deep in amongst the Camelthorn and ebony trees our stunning new lodge offers huge glass fronts, overlooking small watering holes and birdfeeders that attracts some of the smaller and less destructive woodland creatures; bushbuck, duiker, mongoose and squirrel – not to mention a plethora of colourful birdlife.

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

However, do not think we have forgotten about Hwanges fame for its elephant, and of course we couldn't leave them out all together… Due to the destruction elephant cause we want to keep them away from our Disneyland forest, so there is a permanent waterhole no more than a kilometer away. This will attract the elephants in all year round, whilst keeping our woodland intact. Whenever the notion takes our guests they will be able to take an escorted stroll to our large private underground blind, to sit and relax whilst observing the drinking wildlife right up close.

All of our activities that are on offer at Bomani will also be available at Camelthorn and your private guide will love nothing more than to show you round.
