Daka Plains
Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

A relatively new camp, Daka Plains is the perfect base from which to explore Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe which is filled to the brim with wild elephants and lions.

Why We Love it and You Will Too

  • Daka Plains guarantees exceptional game viewing in Hwange (pronounced 'Wang-ee”), Zimbabwe's largest national park. 
  • Safari activities on offer include walking safaris, and guided morning and evening game drives where you’ll witness all sorts of wildlife, including all the iconic members of the Big 5. 
  • Need a rest after your game viewing adventures? Partake in a relaxation session back at camp. Count the passing clouds whilst floating in the pool or sprawl out on a sunlounger with your book and bevvy of choice. 
  • Daka Plains ticks all the boxes as eco-friendly. It is run on the sun’s energy via solar panels and since it is crafted from non-permanent fixtures, the camp area where it is built can be rehabilitated in 1.5 years.
  • Travelling with a few little cubs? Daka Plains is also considered a family-friendly camp, and children above the age of 6 years old are most welcome.

Your Daka Plains Experience

Daka Plains is located within a private concession within Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park found in the far northwest of the country.

Although the park has had a tumultuous history over the last 20 years or so, it has quickly bounced back, and has made a name for itself as a stronghold of large tuskers and prowling lion prides. Take note that you may also see all the members of the Big 5 here, so if you’re wanting to tick these specific animals off your travel list, Daka Plains is a great place to go.

Most of the larger game can be seen on early morning guided drives and night drives which are led by experienced guides who know will introduce you to this eerily beautiful broad stretch of land which holds the title as the largest wildlife reserve in the country.

This relatively new accommodation in Hwange captures everything we love about a safari in Southern Africa. It keeps things simple, yet ultra-comfortable, consisting of rock-and-canvas rooms and a main building where meals are served and lounging is encouraged by the pool. You’ll also spy a waterhole just yonder which attracts all sorts of birds and timid grazers like zebra, kudu, waterbuck and impala.

If you’re big on ‘green travel’ you’ll love that Deka Camp makes an effort when it comes to sustainability. They recycle greywater and make use of solar power and generators run the lodge.
