Nestled in a patch of pristine woodland on the edge of the Hwange National Park, the lodge is unique in it’s style and design. The main lodge is a magnificent stone structure with a thatched roof, built in a U shape around a huge ancient camelthorn tree. Being situated on the edge of Ngamo Plain, Camelthorn Lodge is perfectly placed to explore the remote and unspoilt south eastern portion of the park.
Accomodation consists of 8 forest villas, built with stone and offering space and comfort. Each offer ensuite bathrooms, fans and a fireplace. Camelthorn offers game drives and game walks, all with highly experienced professional guides. They also offer night drives and school or rural villiage visits. The highlight of Camelthorn’s activities must be the 6m long underground blind with a flush toilet. It is situated under a leadwood tree and is disguised as an anthill. Spectacular sunsets and game sightings can be seen from the hide. Another popular activity is going on a pump run, where fuel, oil and rations are taken deep into the park to the 8 waterholes that the lodge operates. This is an all day trip with picnics on the way Birdlife is also prolific at the lodge and will keep many a birdwatcher busy.
Guests can also access the lodge using the steam train which goes from Dete Siding to Ngamo Siding. This is a fabulous trip where guests can enjoy a game drive along the way.
