Robins Camp offers an exciting revival of the iconic safari destination in Hwange National Park. Robins Camp is situated in the rugged northern Basalt area of the park, an area rich in natural water with seeps and springs dotting the area.
It is the home to some of the last great buffalo herds in Africa, with herds of over 2000 still seen. Given the abundance of prey animals, it is no wonder that it also has the highest concentration of lion in the Park.
Robins is also known for big populations of reedbuck, roan, sable and tsessebe as well as the usual herds of elephants and other species encountered in the Park. Particularly encouraging are the regular sightings of both Cheetah and African Wild Dog.
The scenery of Robins is varied with hills, kopjes (small bouldered hills) and vlei (grassed plains that flood seasonally) areas and has a lot to offer the wildlife enthusiast. We welcome children of all ages and guests can self-drive or choose a fully guided trip.
The western section of Robins camp is Acacia with 18 units under thatch. Tastefully decorated in and out with hand painted Matabele designs. Each room has en-suite with hot and cold water and high pressure showers, an overhead fan for hotter days and a full mosquito net to protect you from insects.
The rooms may all be configured as twin or king units. Rooms are tastefully decorated by our local designer using recycled and local items and fabrics. Eight of the Acacia rooms form a laager around a central lapa area that is a wonderful spot to relax and chat with friends.
The Acacia section is well suited to private groups of up to 40 people. Two of the units at Acacia are suited to triple rooms or children sharing with parents.
Acacia – 16 Standard Chalets and 2 Triple Chalets under thatch.
The eastern section of Robins Camp is in a more contemporary design and only two units are under thatch. Each room has en-suite with hot and cold water and high pressure showers, an overhead fan for hotter days and a full mosquito net to protect you from insects.
The rooms may all be configured as twin or king-size units. Rooms are tastefully decorated by our local designer using recycled and local items and fabrics. Each unit at Mopane section has a covered veranda where you may sit and enjoy watching the birds, squirrels and mongooses.
Mopani – 18 Standard Chalets under Chroma deck with covered veranda.
Although wildlife sighting is usually very good in the Robins Camp area of Hwange National Park, we have no control over the animal movements – some sightings require some patience and a little luck…
