|Day 8 -10|
HWANGE NATIONAL PARKOn the morning of Day 8 you are flown to Somalisa Camp, set in the heart of Hwange National Park, known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds. Somalisa is an authentic bush camp, a blend of old African charm and elegance together with an exclusive safari experience. Its stunning location tucked away on an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain gives it breath taking views of the savannah plains of the famous Kennedy Vlei line. At Somalisa Camp, you experience the heightened romance of the African Bush in one of the most natural environments in Africa. This is the way Africa was meant to be explored. Hwange is legendary for its array of wildlife, including massive herds of elephant and buffalo, especially during the dryer winter months. In summer, antelope migrate onto the plains, with large predators following close behind. Spread throughout the park are shallow pans, around which wildlife gathers, making for reliable game viewing. Elephant, cape buffalo, sable, roan, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest, impala, and sometimes even gemsbok (oryx), can be seen here. This park is one of the best for predators: lion, leopard, and cheetah are regularly sighted, along with the smaller African wildcat, serval, honey badger, civet and spotted hyena. Wild dog, the rarest of African carnivores, survive here in healthy packs that hunt prey as they have from time immemorial. Hwange is one of this highly endangered animal's last strongholds. Birdlife in the area is also prolific, with more than 400 species present, including those that frequent teak woodlands, as well as those more typical of the arid Kalahari. The varied calls of birdsong create a pleasant cacophony during the day. The vast silence of the African night is shattered by the roars of lions and the laughter of hyenas.
