Verney's Camp

Bordering Hwange National Park, Private Area


From US$430

Lodge Description

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Situated in a remote southeastern part of the Hwange National Park, the camp is on a private concession that is not open to regular Park visitors. Verney’s Camp is on a large open floodplain surrounded by mopane and teak forests in which Machaba Safaris’ tents are tucked.

Verney's Camp is a nostalgic-style safari camp. The main camp area is flanked by 2 family tents and 8 double tents, which are tucked into the teak forest on an elevated platform that provides sweeping views over the pan and waterholes. Each tastefully appointed unit contains a luxury en-suite bedroom with modern bathroom with hot and cold water and flushing toilet, and patio deck and relaxation area. Verney's Camp is a highly sought after combination of location, comfort and exceptional bird and wildlife viewing.

Authentic eco-luxury
Premium quality mattresses, bedding, bathroom amenities and furnishings ensure luxurious comfort while low impact structural design and the use of solar energy ensures a low eco-footprint.

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.

Double vanity
A double vanity basin adds to the feeling of home comfort, even though you are thousands of miles away in the heart of 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.

Electricity and plug points
Each room is fitted with electrical lights, lamps and fans. The 220V International plug points can power charging stations, batteries and sleep apnoea machines but are not suitable for hairdryers and electric shavers.

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.

A knowledgeable and passionate guide makes for an exceptional safari.
A skilled guide reads the land to make sure that his guests see the most wildlife possible without putting their safety at risk. For the team at Machaba, being a guide is a calling that runs in the blood and is fuelled by the heart. Each is a champion of conservation, sustainability and eco-tourism. They appreciate the subtleties, complexities and the responsibilities that come with operating in - and safeguarding - these precious slices of untamed land.
