We stayed at Somalisa Acacia as a family with our 2 children (12 and 10) in July for 3 days at the end of a 3 week holiday in Namibia and Zimbabwe. Clearly this was the highlight of our numerous lodges based on various aspects,...More
Everything about this place is incredible. The rooms were excellent, the staff were so welcoming, and the game drives were unforgettable. While the rooms are essentially tents they are very spacious and have a ton of character. We had a number of cute copper fixtures....More
The Camp was pretty and our guide (Honest) was wonderful. However, the Camp is ill equipped for the cold. While the hot water bottles were helpful, they were only effective while still in bed. At some point, one had to get out of bed. The...More
Well, we were there in the winter, but we didn’t expect to need hot water bottles in our bed and a wood stove in the tent! But, that’s what we had and needed. The tent was very comfortable, king bed, great bathroom. We game drives...More
The tents have multiple plug points for charging phones, cameras etc. However, I am not too sure about hairdryers. Somalisa is 100% solar powered so I am not too sure if the voltage is right for hairdryers.

Our morning game drives leave just after sunrise, usually at about 5:30 or 6am. You will be back in camp at about 11-11:30 for brunch. After that, you will have time to relax, perhaps take a little siesta before meeting for high tea at 3pm. You will leave on your afternoon drive after high-tea and be back in camp at about 6:30 or 7pm- just in time for cocktails and dinner!
However, we are African Bush Camps are very flexible and want our guests to enjoy their time so you are free to plan your own time and schedule with your guide.
I hope that helps!

Dear Amy. April is shoulder season, meaning that the landscape is beautiful and lush from the rains. However, the dryer season is upon us at this time so the concentration of animals gets better as wildlife congregate to permanent water sources, one being right in front of Somalisa Camp. There is always an abundance of elephant whatever the season at Somalisa, and you will not be disappointed with close encounters when elephant and other animals come to drink from the trough just meters away from the 'human' pool. Please see our Seasonal Calendars on our website for more information.
We hope you will join us in April.
Until then, take care and warmest regards
