You can tell Verney’s Camp was built by and for safari-lovers who value simplicity. Situated in a remote part of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, it captures that classic safari feel, with a minimal, yet modern sensibility.
It’s the type of camp that has everything you could need to unwind and reconnect to nature. The location couldn’t be more perfect and well-thought-out. Like a well-kept safari secret, it’s tucked away under a cluster of old teak trees and overlooking a waterhole which teems with life. From its many seating areas on the main wooden deck, you can put your feet up, order something crisp, and gaze out over the landscape. You can game view here without even needing to move a muscle.
When you’re ready to join Verney’s guides on some activities, twice daily game drives and bush walks give you that all-access pass to a wide selection of game like elephant and buffalo, lion and leopard. If you time your arrival during the summer, you’ll find yourself in a birders mecca, when carmine bee-eaters make themselves at home, and migrant species like woodland kingfisher arrive.
If that doesn’t sell you, you might just be swayed by how conscious this camp really is. It features a strong eco-friendly sensibility, operating with the basic principle of leaving the surrounding area as pristine as it has always been.
