Why? By checking in after you've visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.

Latest Check-Ins

Currently closed due to renovations. Unfortunately they let us not stay on the campsite even if it seems so that the campsites are not affected.

Report Check-In

We planned to camp at Gwango but couldn't as they do not allow children under 8 years to stay, as they say it's too dangerous as no fences. So please be aware if you have children.

Still a really lovely place. Just to add that it is only one site.

Report Check-In

One of the best establishments we have ever visited or camped in! We were greeted by Patience, who was kind and helpful. Matthew assisted us with building a fire and clearly loves his line of work. The place is immaculate, the staff are outstanding and to top it all off; there is a watering hole opposite the fire pit and restaurant. José the chef makes delicious 'bush bread' and Pink was very helpful in arranging it to be made for us. Tuso the guide, is not only passionate and enthusiastic, he clearly loves wildlife and his job! We really wish we could stay longer, would highly recommend to anyone visiting Hwange National Park. Excellent in all areas, well worth $10USD pp/pn.

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.

Elephants walking through campsite next to your car. No fences. The campsite is about 300m away from the restaurant/reception. Very clean ablutions. Prices still 10 USD pppn. They have a water hole at the restaurant which elephants frequently visit. Highly recommend!

Good deal for 10 USD, friendly staff and hot clean showers. The campsite is sand with 1 braai pit and 1 fire pit only. Good place to connect with the home front and do some laundry but otherwise nothing special.

Highly recommended also from our side. Camping on beach white sand. Very friendly staff. Still 10 $ pp. Good food, especially the stew.

Lovely place and reasonably priced at US$10 pppn.
First and foremost the thing that stands out is that the staff here were among the loveliest and friendliest people I’ve ever met. They couldn’t do enough for us - even offered to wash up our dishes for us when we finished our meal!
The site is on open bare ground area, nice and shaded under trees. Just one large communal fire pit and one communal braai stand, both of which were lit for us and firewood provided.
Ablutions clean and well-maintained with two lovely hot showers and an outside washing up/laundry hand washing area.
Restaurant/bar on site although we didn’t try it. WiFi was not working when we were there.
We had the whole place to ourselves, but I suspect it might be less comfortable if the site were busy.

Great campsite at the edge of park. No problems with dogs and allowed in the restaurant. Camping $10 pppn, dinner $8 per plate with plenty of options, breakfast around $6 depending on what you have. Day trips available for reception. Hot showers and free fast Internet, fire will be prepared if required. We saw a huge heard elephants on the ride in and plenty of Baboons. The road in is all good sealed road. Highly recommended, other campsites on the main road quoted us $15 pppn with cold shower and no Internet so very glad we made the ride out here.
