Deka Camp 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, Deka Camp 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 Deka’s 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 wateringhole 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.
