Somalisa Camp is a small intimate tented camp tucked under the canopy of an acacia tree island in the eastern sector of Hwange National Park.

Six A-frame canvas tents are positioned in a horseshoe formation to take advantage of the camp's active waterhole. Inside, the tents create an ambience of a bygone era; there are varnished wooden floors, dark teak furniture and a writing desk, while the outside bathroom features a flush lavatory and bucket shower. Electricity at the camp is solar powered and, at night, lighting is provided by paraffin lamps in the main areas and battery powered lamps inside the tents.
