Verney’s Camp: The Details

Verney’s camp benefits from being in a very remote part of Hwange National Park, not open to regular park visitors and to this end, you can expect a very private intimate safari experience. Being on a large private concession allows for night drives to search from the elusive nocturnal creatures. The size of the wildlife herds and the variety of animal species are spectacular. Highlights include the enormous buffalo and elephant herds, and the predatory animals including lion, leopard, hyena, wild dog and cheetah.
