Nestled within an acacia forest on the edge of a seasonal floodplain, Somalisa looks out over extensive savannah grasslands – excellent elephant territory. Unassumingly blending into the environment, this stylish camp was carefully built to ensure it maintained an uncompromising focus on the beauty of the region, the game experience and excellent guiding.
Somalisa Camp consists of seven elegantly furnished sail tents, charmingly styled with glass wood-burner fireplaces, gauze sliding doors and decadent vintage baths with views.
The main decking area includes spacious split-level decking with a separate lounge and dining area with the ambiance of a bygone era, and stunning vistas over the busy pan. The elevated plunge pool is great for cooling off during summer days and overlooks the elephant drinking pool.
At Somalisa Camp, you will 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!
