Located in the Sinamatella region of Hwange National Park in the top Northwest corner of Zimbabwe, Camp Chitubu is Hwange’s newest photographic camp, built in 2022. Situated on a natural ridge, the camp and rooms overlook a natural spring that holds water all year round, creating some of the best game viewing from your bed! At just 2km from Mandavu Dam, the biggest water source in the park, the animal concentrations are large and varied. Hwange National Park is known for its diverse wildlife and prolific birdlife - there are over 100 different mammal species in the Park and an estimated 500 bird species. We guarantee a dawn wakeup call of the avian kind and night time serenades by thirsty elephants, hyenas and boundary stating lions. Camp Chitubu’s focus is to give guests unforgettable experiences on foot and by vehicle. Whilst still offering game drives we focus on the walking safaris as this is what Zimbabwe is known for.
Our aim at Chitubu is to give guests an unforgettable safari experience both by vehicle and on foot – and often in camp itself, as the camp is unfenced. Game drives are offered twice a day or as full day expeditions, as decided with your guide, with special focus on the chance to experience walking on foot, led by our professionals, to make awe inspiring approaches to wild animals. Photographic opportunities are around every corner, no matter what your level of skill and with a shared passion, our guides will help you to get the best shot. If you have a special interest such as birding, please let us know in advance so that we can make sure you have the best experience in this field.

We offer USB charging ports in our game drive vehicles for charging of cameras and electrical items. Should you wish to have a private vehicle for you or your family, this can be arranged prior to arrival at an additional charge.
