The camp is owned and run by David Carson, a professional Zimbabwe guide with many years of experience. The emphasis is on wildlife and walking safaris and the level of guiding is superb.  Other activities offered are 4 x 4 game drives, birdwatching and night drives.

LOCATION

Hwange Bushcamp is located in the remote northern area of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.   Access is via a road transfer which takes around 3 hours on a tar road to the mining town of Hwange before turning off onto the dirt road to the Hwange National Park. Once in the Park it is a game drive to camp.

Alternatively, you can fly-in from Victoria Falls to Hwange which takes around 30 minutes. You will be met at the airstrip and it is a game drive to camp. 

CAMP

The camp has 6 large and spacious tents with large gauze windows to allow the breeze through the tents during the day.  The tents are ensuite with flush toilets, a bush shower with hot water on demand and hand basin.  The camp does not have a family tent – families with children should split up and have an adult with one child in each tent.  

The shady lounge and dining area is the focal point of the camp, tastefully decorated with rustic hints of old world colonial charm, reminiscent of those enjoyed by early explorers to the continent. 

The bush camp kitchen provides delicious meals cooked on a wood burning stove and with advance notifice the camp is happy to cater to your dietary requirements. 

The whole camp is run on solar power to lower the camp’s environmental footprint and there are inverters in the game drive vehicles for charging cameras and electrical items.  There is also a charging station in the dining area that works when the generator is on to charge camera and electrical items.  Please note that there is no WIFI or mobile signal at Hwange Bushcamp.

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

Activities are very fluid and consist of a mix between game drives, walks and spending time at game watering holes. It could start as a drive from camp but rapidly change to a walk as some tracks of a herd of buffalo or the resident pride of lions is spotted.

The Robins / Sinamatella area of the Hwange has a diverse landscape which allows for explorations of woodlands, rocky outcrops, natural springs and seasonal sandy rivers.

Guided Walks - being on foot with wildlife is a very exciting and a great experience. Whatever you see your guide will be a fountain of information and make the outdoors come alive with his explanations and interpretations of the environment you are in. There is always time for a small mid-morning picnic to keep you going until lunch time.

Game Drives - are taken in open safari land rovers. There are centre consoles for storage and ponchos or blankets are provided in the cool winter months. Generally you will stop for morning or afternoon tea and snacks or evening sundowners while on game drive.

Bush Camping – enjoy some remote bush camping with 10-15km bush walks that will take you through to bush from camp to camp.  As you explore the area by foot there is ample opportunity for up-close-and-personal encounters with a variety of Hwange’s wildlife species. Walking safaris heighten senses and allow you to be fully immersed in your surroundings. They also slow down the pace of the safari and provide the opportunity to examine spoor and different types of vegetation as your guide talks about their role in the ecosystem.
