Tucked away on an Aca­cia is­land on the edge of an an­cient flood­plain, Somalisa Camp is a lux­u­ri­ous oa­sis in the heart of Hwange Na­tional Park. Its seven re­cently re­built Sail Tents each have flush toi­let, in­door/out­door shower and a cop­per bath­tub with a view. The eco-friendly camp runs on a so­lar-power farm and sew­er­age pu­rity sys­tem, so it re­cy­cles 80 per cent of water. Ad­ven­tures in­clude guided bush walks, morn­ing and evening game drives in open sa­fari ve­hi­cles and game view­ing from hides. Spot the Big Five, along with ze­bra, gi­raffe and the en­dan­gered roan an­te­lope. The pièce de ré­sis­tance is the pool over­look­ing a nat­u­ral wa­ter­hole where ele­phants con­gre­gate to drink – so close you can al­most reach out and touch them.
