War leider unsere schlechteste Unterkunft/Campsite auf der ganzen Afrikareise. Alles total zerfallen und defekt. Bäder sind sehr schmutzig und wir sind diesbezüglich überhaupt nicht anspruchsvoll. Hier könnte man etwas tolles daraus machen...!!! Die Aussicht über die Ebene ist fantastisch aber leider ist es damit nicht getan. Toller Ausblick zum Picknicken mit Aussicht auf Durchreise, aber hier zu nächtigen ist nicht empfohlen.

Warm welcome at a reception. We were referred to the campsite after registration. Two ladies came by to bring wood and made sure the fire was lit so that we could shower both in the evening and in the morning. Nice view of large plain.

Schade, das Camp war in den frühen 90ern ein absolutes Highlight. Heute leider total verfallen, obwohl es in 2013 Anstrengungen zur Renovierung gab. Wirklich fantastischer Blick über eine Ebene vom ehemaligen Restaurant. Die Werkzeuge und Baumaterialien von 2013 liegen auch heute noch verschlossen im Restaurant. Schade, man könnte wirklich etwas daraus machen!

We stayed for one night in the camp ground. Basic camping. There is a large covered area with a couple of big tables, so we camped next to it, which was handy. Need to get in early to get a spot with a view. There are a couple of taps, so water was ok. The ablutions are not very good, and varying degrees of working. Hot water is by donkey boiler, so it would depend whether they have lit the fire as to whether you get hot water or not. There is a restaurant and bar there, but it did not look open. There is also a small shop, but no fuel. The person at reception was not forthcoming with any information, so we didn't find out much about the place. Definitely worth at least one night as the view is fantastic.

We stayed here for 3 nights with a hired 4x4 with roof tent and loved this place - albeit the showers and toilets are really dirty, full of mosquitos and need upgrading badly, but the view into the valley is stunning. And the staff running the camp are extremely friendly (as we found all of Zimbabwe). They are currently renovating the chalets there and there are currently no other facilities like bar or restaurant mentioned in some travel guides. We woke up one morning to witness a giant herd of hundreds of buffalo in the valley being stalked by a pride of lion, three of the lion almost had one of the adult buffalo down and then a group of about 10 buffalo broke away and saw the lion off and chased them well away. It’s a beautiful place to spend a couple of days watching the wildlife in the valley, and we had hyena around the campsite at night. We had the campsite to ourselves for 2 of the nights, and it’s a great base to stay and go on game drives around Hwange if you’re on a budget. The reality in Hwange is that unless you’re staying at an upmarket private lodge which will charge a fortune - camping is the only budget option, and all the sites are run down and in a state of disrepair. But the experience you get is worth it if you like wilderness and adventure. Come fully catered as the shop doesn’t sell much other than beer, cider and a few basics - and the only way to pay on site is with cash US$ or bonds. 1 star for the ablutions (though we had hot water) but 5 stars for the view camping on the edge of the escarpment.
