Somalisa Acacia

Trees represent rooting and connection, which is one of the reasons why our family-friendly camps are named after our favourite African trees. The acacia tree is one of the richest symbols of Africa, its silhouette in the vivid orange and hues of pinks, harmonise with the tranquil sounds of the hornbill in the distance to create truly serene moments to share with loved ones. Create meaningful and authentic memories with your family under the African sky.

Acacia trees fill the area, creating a dappled stream of light over the deck which shapes an ambience of tranquillity and security. The splash pool at Somalisa Acacia borders the wild elephant waterholes which are frequented by these peaceful, powerful animals. By being in the presence of these profound and wise creatures you are humbled and exhilarated all at once. The fundamental focus at Somalisa Acacia is creating memories for families to keep forever, activities such as guided walks with our child specialist guides who enlighten and delight our guests with their passion and knowledge.

Synchronization of honest wilderness and innovative design is what you can expect at Somalisa Acacia. The camp consists of 2 family tents with interleading and 2 standard units. The central area enjoys its own private views of a small waterhole, frequented by large herds of big game, which is the perfect place to enjoy some valuable family time. A small splash pool allows you to cool off during the heat of the day. Burlap textile is dramatically draped over the bed, offering guests an idyllic setting to sleep in the African bush. Fusion of textures from brick face to natural wood to copper brings a true organic atmosphere to this incredible family camp.
