Deka Camp

Inside Hwange National Park


From US$575

Lodge Description

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Resting in the far northwest of Hwange National Park, Deka Camp is probably the most remote camp in the park. Given that the camp is on a private concession, our guests can enjoy night drives, walking safaris and game drives in one of the wildest areas in Southern Africa.

Thatch dining and social area
The oversized tented deck area forms the social hub of our camps. You can swap stories at the bar, relax in the lounge or gather around the large fire pits to swap stories, fuelling the feeling of being on an authentic African safari in the bush.

Plunge pool
Africa is a sun-drenched country where summer temperatures often reach the high thirties and low forty-degrees Celsius. After a morning safari, counting the passing clouds while floating in a pool or resting on a sun bed is nothing short of sublime.
Dedicated Wi-Fi zone
A holiday in Africa is the perfect place in which to disconnect from the ‘net and connect with friends and nature. We deliberately don’t have Wi-Fi access throughout the camp, but we do have designated Wi-Fi areas if you do need access to the web.

Solar energy
We harvest the sun’s energy via solar panels, that store electricity in a battery bank. Our hot water supply is generated by a state of the art Thermodynamic Solar Energy system, which ensures that the camps have hot water, no matter the weather.

Eco-friendly kitchen and food storage
To keep our eco-footprint light, we use energy-efficient fridges in our kitchens, which we turn off at night. We also use coal cold rooms and cellars to store heat-sensitive items.

Airstrip access
The camp is only a short game drive away from the nearest airstrip, providing game viewing opportunities en route to and from the camp.

The remote location of Deka Camp does not mean a compromise in eco comfort. Fashioned out of canvas, local rock and topped with a thatched roof, each of the 8 luxury units features an en-suite bedroom with modern bathroom, relaxation area and private patio. Deka Camp is the ideal breakaway location for those looking to immerse themselves in the remote and untamed wilds.

Full en suite bathrooms
The en suite luxury bathrooms have hot and cold running water and western-style flush toilets, enabling you to refresh, relax and reflect on another exciting day in nature.

Finest bedclothes
Superior quality mattresses are dressed in natural fabrics and the finest of coverings. Sleeping in the wilds has never been so indulgent.

Sumptuous towels and decadent bath products
Taking a shower after a day of adventure in the wilds reminds one of the simple pleasures in life. We supply locally produced bath products made from organic herbs and absorbent comforting towels.

Staying in a luxury safari tent
Staying in a safari tent immerses you into the wilds without compromising on the comfort and safety of a luxury room. Your ears will tune into the light rustlings of leaves or the distant roar of the mighty king of the veld. The wind gently catches and snaps the canvas and the air is alive with scented bushveld air. Being this close to nature evokes feelings of oneness and belonging. Africa is the birthplace of humankind, and a visit to Machaba Safaris feels like coming home.
