Deteema Springs Camp (Hwange) is located near the Deteema dam in northwestern Hwange National Park. This area is famous for its large concentrations of animals, the rugged, mountainous terrain of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park – with its year-round water seeps – is an area ideal for walking and game drives, producing incredible wildlife sightings.
The eight safari tents are simple in style, with green canvas walls and en-suite bathrooms, designed to blend right in with its surroundings. Each tent is raised up on large wooden decks with views towards the Deteema Springs, a reliable water source that can attract a constant procession of wildlife during the drier months between May and November.

Deteema Springs Camp (Hwange National Park) style philosophy is “Less is more” meaning this is a non-pretentious camp designed to blend in with the rock and bush that occurs on the rise above the Deteema Springs. The tents are smaller than the traditional safari-style tents, to maintain immersion within the surroundings of the most iconic areas of Hwange National Park. The tents are comfortable with all the facilities of a luxury camp, including hot and cold running water, flush toilet and decks.
The communal dining and lounge area is tented and sits on a wooden deck that overlooks the Deteema Springs. This view offers guests a rare opportunity to sit and watch stories of the African bush unfold before their eyes.
ACTIVITIES AT DETEEMA SPRINGS CAMP
Deteema Springs Camp (Hwange National Park) was opened in 2019. The camp offers an intimate safari experience within an incredible wildlife area that few can comprehend. Deteema Springs Camp is Africa in its wildest form and guests have the opportunity to explore on foot or take game drives to view this incredible area.
Game drives Game drives take place each morning & afternoon, and always depart from camp. Each drive will explore the river systems and plains around the camp and lasts approximately 3-hours. The wildlife in the area is prolific with excellent chances to see larger predators, herds of elephant, buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives begin in the early evening and offer guests a chance to see smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.
Walking safaris Morning walking safaris are conducted daily and are always accompanied by armed guides. Smaller, often overlooked, flora and fauna are the focus on moring walks. Walks are, as such, taken at a very leisurely pace. Please note, walking is both weather & guide dependent, or dependent on terrain conditions.
