Enjoy A Relaxing and Restful Retreat

Hippo Pools Wilderness Camp is tranquil and charming, located in the historic Umfurudzi National Park on the banks of the Mazowe River. This National Park is home to a diverse variety of wildlife, bird, plant and tree species. The river is teeming with all the fish species you like to catch and the activities available include horseback riding, nature walks, mountain bike riding and canoeing, among others.

The story of the Hippo Pools Trust is an inspiring one that puts our motto, “People and Wildlife Together,” into action. This trust helps rural communities in Zimbabwe live in harmony with wildlife to benefit the people and the animals.

The accommodation available at Hippo Pools offers something for everyone. Guests can choose from lodges, chalets, safari tents or camping, all of which are comfortable and affordable. Our accommodation has recently been completely renovated and now boasts new and modern facilities. Our Hippo Pools staff are well-known for their incredible hospitality, as well as their extensive knowledge of the natural surroundings. Visitors can opt to self-cater or take full advantage of the fantastic Boma Restaurant that has a delicious menu that the whole family will enjoy.

The newly refurbished restaurant serves up tasty meals in an alfresco setting surrounded by the breathtaking beauty and the sounds of the African bush. Watch the hippos frolicking in the river over breakfast, enjoy lunch with impala and kudu as your backdrop and sip your sundowners as the plentiful birdlife serenades you.
