Wild Expeditions | Camp Hwange

Hwange National Park

Wild Expeditions pioneering collective of owner-run safari camps and expeditions operating in remote parts of Africa

These experiences are best suited to travellers who truly understand and value the concept of wild and immersive journeys. The luxury offered is access to extraordinary places and experiences that are only available to a few discerning travellers each year.

CAMP HWANGE - authentic & connected safaris

A rustic, traditional camp of eight canvas-walled units beneath cooling thatch, Camp Hwange overlooks one of the natural waterholes that make this part of Hwange National Park special.

Founded in 2010 by a well-known Zimbabwean professional guide, Camp Hwange’s location is strategic. This private concession in the central part of Hwange lies between the rugged mopane woodlands and their kopjes to the north and the sandy soil teak forests to the south-west; it’s location here on this open savannah ecotone means that game viewing is as diverse as its habitat types.

Aside from fantastic game viewing, especially in the drier months from April through to November, Camp Hwange offers an excellent guided experience with a strong emphasis on walking and tracking.

The future of Africa’s wildest places and traditional tribes increasingly requires conscious and intrepid travellers seeking these bucket list journeys, together with brave stakeholders who are committed to providing meaningful and immersive travel experiences.  

We invite you to take a Wild Expedition.

The impact of your stay

In the case of Ethiopia and Madagascar, Wild Expeditions Africa operates in some of the more remote and least-established destinations on the African continent. The positive impact of a viable ecotourism operation existing in areas like these on both biodiversity conservation and community engagement cannot be under-estimated. This is precisely why Wild Expeditions do operate where they do. Every guest who stays with Wild Expeditions contributes to the cause and these positive impacts simply by choosing to travel with them.

Every stay contributes through:

 Some of the more tangible outputs of this contribution are outlined as follows:

  • In addition to the annual fee paid for our private concession, included in the nightly rate are guest park fees and a conservation levy that helps fund the operation of the national park.
  • The primary conservation focus at Camp Hwange has been collaboration with independent research and conservation organisations working within Hwange. These range from Bhejane Trust, Hwange Lion Research and Painted Dog Conservation who they are able to support as a result of guests staying at the camp.
  • A major threat to wildlife conservation in Africa is growing human populations and the resultant reduction in natural habitat and increases in human-wildlife-conflict. Camp Hwange work with NGO, Children in the Wilderness (CITW), hosting children for what is often their first experience of wildlife inside a national park. Aside from the educational aspect of such experiences the children are also able to understand employment and career opportunities in ecotourism and conservation.

Unleash your spirit on the savanna


Camp Hwange

With all 8 rooms and the main area oriented towards the waterhole and plain in front of camp, the natural central point is the open-sided thatched lounge and dining area with its campfire where every day tends to start and end.

Four en-suite rooms lie on either side of this main area, each canvas-walled and kept cool in summer (and warm in winter) by their thatched roofs. One is a two-roomed family room with independent bathrooms. The spacing ensures privacy for each room with our obligatory guaze panels serving as windows to ensure both a cooling through draft as well as the ability to hear the sounds of the night. Whether it is the frogs at the waterhole, a lonely whooping Hyaena or the roars of the resident Lion pride we want you to hear, smell and feel Africa.


  • Exceptional dry season game viewing of hundreds of elephant and many other species like buffalo, giraffe, sable, zebra, the resident lion pride and more;
  • Excellent guides and interpretive guiding, especially on foot;
  • The opportunity to observe Africa’s mega-fauna on foot, from logpile hides or from 4×4 vehicle.


SEASONALITY: Open all year.

CHILDREN: 8+ years (children under 12 are not permitted on walking safaris). Families with children under 12 years are required to take a private vehicle for the duration of their stay.
