May 20th, 2019 Gwango Heritage Resort

Great place to stay! Nice staff. Restaurant is good but pricy. We had to be escorted from the restaurant back to the campsite because elephants came around. What a nice experience having dinner with elephants next to you :-)
This happens very often they told us...be careful when walking around.
They made a fire in the campsite for us
10$, free WiFi at the bar.

May 20th, 2019 Nyamandhlovu Pan

Nice to relax with a drink in the evening when you may overnight at main camp. A lot of different wildlife around and groups of elephant coming and going in the evening. You can also book overnight staying but the platform was full of monkey poo and toilet not clean. Dont know if it is always like that.

May 19th, 2019 Guvalava Platform

Perfect place to have a wild camping feeling! Clean toilet, clean platform. We put our camping table up there to have dinner and breakfast. Platform is equipped with chairs. Stayed in our roof top tent. After dark lots of elephant and haeynas came. Some elephant of different groups came very close to the platform because they loved to drink waisting water out of a broken pipe of the ablution block left to the platform.
Great beeing in a safe position on the platform watching 8 elephant 5 m away drinking and fighting for the water. We will never forget the noises!!!
The best camping when you have full moon and clear sky!

May 16th, 2019 Shumba camp

We just stopped here. Nice pan but unfortunately the campsite is not directly next to it. We enjoyed camping close to the pans and have the opportunity to sit in the dark waiting for wildlife. Full moon is the best :)
But still very nice waterhole.

May 15th, 2019 Hwange N.P. - Masuma Dam

We enjoyed the camping very much!
This campsite is very famous and often booked in advance. The guide at the campsite told us the best month in the park are form August to Oktober when the waterholes are full of wildlife. But also more difficult or impossible to book spontaneous. When we were there mid may it was quit busy.
One little minus: very busy waterhole during day. When vehicles are coming wildlife dissapeares. But still grab it when you have the possibility to book!

May 14th, 2019 Deteema Camp

A very nice campsite. Really lovely place and i think not as busy as masuma.
We just stopped for lunch and there was not much except of plenty birds, crocodile, zebra and impala. But I am sure in the afternoon elephant will join for drinking.
