Verney’s Camp

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Situated in a remote southeastern part of the Hwange National Park, the camp is on a private concession that is not open to regular Park visitors. Verney’s Camp is on a large open floodplain surrounded by mopane and teak forests in which Machaba Safaris’ tents are tucked.

Eco-luxury safari-style canvas tents

The accommodation at Verney’s Camp is a masterful blend of modernity, comfort and exposure to untamed wildlife. The designer tents are inspired by the spirit of safaris of old, with the convenience of running hot and cold water, flush toilets and electricity offering guests the best of both worlds.

Wide variety of wild animals

The size of the herds and the variety of animal species is spectacular. Highlights include the buffalo and elephant herds, and the predatory leopards, lions and packs of African wild dogs (also known as painted dogs).

Spot nocturnal predators on night drives

A night drive is an adrenalin rich experience. Travelling in a customised open-air game vehicle armed only with a spotlight and the knowledge of your guide, you will learn how to discern the growls and howls of predators and the scent of the prey. It is nature at its most primal.

Migratory buffalo, elephant and antelope herds

Migrating herds of buffalo and elephant come to drink from Verney’s Pan as do large herds of plains game including the protected Roan antelope. This high concentration of wildlife is irresistible to predators, especially packs of African wild dogs and regal-looking lions.

All the comfort without the frills

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.
