Camelthorn Lodge • Hwange National Park


Nestled adjacent to the renowned Ngamo Plains of Hwange National Park, Camelthorn Lodge is a distinctive gem in both style and design. What sets it apart is its remarkable origin—a lodge built by and for the local community, deeply connected to the land it occupies. At the heart of the property stands an ancient Camelthorn tree, from which the lodge takes its name. The main lodge and eight charming villas gracefully encircle this natural centerpiece.

Here, you can relish in al fresco dining, savor your morning coffee by a crackling fire, embark on thrilling elephant-tracking adventures on foot, and capture stunning close-up photographs from the concealed look-up blind. Camelthorn Lodge offers a truly spectacular wilderness experience, serving as the ideal home base for immersing yourself in the magic of safari life.
