Verney's Camp

Verney’s is a private concession area in a typically un-used part of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. It is a beautiful amphitheater fringed by teak forest that opens up onto an impressive waterhole that is a playground to the famous elephant herds of Hwange. 

The oversized tented deck area forms the social hub of the camp. You can swap stories at the bar, relax in the lounge or gather around the large fire pits to swap stories, fueling the feeling of being on an authentic African safari in the bush. There’s a lovely pool to take a dip during the heat of the day. Verney’s brings chic camping to a new level with herds of elephant often in view outside your luxury tent.

Ten tents are tucked away perfectly under the shady arms of the teak trees bordering the open waterhole in front of camp. Each tent has been carefully positioned to ensure the best serenity and privacy so that guests can enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Each room is comfortably appointed and has en suite shower, flush toilet, and double vanity which are all beautifully designed to retain the authenticity and magical feeling of being on safari. Verney’s Camp has eight double/twin rooms and two family rooms, all of which are on wooden decks, and are connected by natural pathways on the ground.

Cultural Experience

Half Day Trip
We offer an exciting half day trip that includes visiting our local School, a small rural village near the National Park, and an informative stop over at the Wild Dog Research Centre.

A Brief Description - After an early breakfast at 7am, guests depart on a slow game drive north east towards Hwange Main Camp, which takes around 2 hours. Guests will visit The National Parks Primary School that we as Verney’s Camp have adopted and sponsor along with other operators in Hwange National Park. After the visit, guest travel to Mabale Village where we visit this authentic rural village typical to the area, and meet the local people from the district. Following this visit we then head to the Painted Dog Research Centre to learn more about the endangered African Wild Dog, guests also get a chance to meet the researches and get involved in future sponsorship of this critical study. Then it’s back to Verney’s Camp after a scrumptuous picnic lunch at one of the numerous waterholes on the way.

Best days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Pre-booking this activity helps us to coordinate with the school and researchers (During school holidays and weekends the school is closed however the trip still operates to the other two venues).
