Zimbabwe is a beautiful country in Southern Africa that is known for its dramatic landscapes, its diverse wildlife.
Let’s look at the Robins Camp
ABOUT ROBINS CAMP
Robins Camp, now under private new management, 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.
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…
Robins Camp is situated in the north western section of Hwange National Park, a quick 20-minute flight or a two-hour drive from Victoria Falls.
