Deteema Springs

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Deteema Springs is a small concession area in a well-known northern region of the Hwange National Park. Close to the Deteema dam, the camp is perched on a slight rocky rise above permanent water springs, offering magnificent views of large concentrations of animals, including elephants. While night safaris are not allowed due to park regulations, Deteema offers amazing opportunities for walking safaris and viewing wildlife from the comfort of the camp.

Open Grasslands

Open grassland bordered by woodlands

Once a historical picnic site, Deteema Springs Camp rests on the shoulder of a small rise dotted with boulders and fringed by teak and mopane forests. The camp offers views of the seep (or set of springs) to the one side and the Deteema dam to the other.

Each of the 8 eco-luxury canvas tents is positioned on elevated decks on the side of a slope offering guests privacy, comfort and unrivalled sweeping views. The camp has been designed so that the tents blend into the background, leaving the visiting animals to be the stars of the show.

The wildlife visits you

The seeps of Deteema Springs offer a permanent water source, which attracts daily visits by the famous elephant herds of Hwange. Hundreds of plains game are also a common sight as are packs of African wild dogs hunting on the floodplains. At night, the air is alive with the calls of lion and leopard.

Machaba Camps 97
Machaba Safaris achieves a balance of maximum guest comfort and minimal impact on the environment.

What does this mean?

Machaba Safaris combines the authenticity of the past, the comforts of today and a future-thinking eco-awareness. Our camps feature iconic canvas tents, cooling plunge pools and communal bars and dining areas and reading nooks. We consciously forgo certain conveniences like hairdryers and air-con, and rely on alternative energy to lighten our load on the planet.

How we lighten the load
  • Camp electricity is a hybrid of solar energy and a back-up generator.
  • Low energy consuming appliances and light bulbs.
  • No permanent fixtures means that our campsites can be rehabilitated in 1.5 years.
  • Separate Bio Plants manage kitchen, laundry and staff village solids.
