"While Somalisa Acacia Camp in Hwange National Park in northwest Zimbabwe features all the same bells and whistles as its award-winning sister camp, Somalisa, along with excellent guiding and fantastic wildlife encounters, it specifically caters to families with children of all ages. Allowing your little ones to learn and immerse themselves in the bush from a young age, a stay here creates countless wonderful memories that will last a lifetime"
