Tsholotsho South

Derived from the early San inhabitants’ word “Tsoro o tso” meaning the head of an elephant, this concession is home to large herds of elephants and in our opinion currently the best area in Africa to hunt big elephant bulls.

Tsholotsho shares a 47-mile unfenced border with the Hwange National Park. At 400,000 acres, this huge area has fantastic potential for big tuskers as well as lions, leopard, buffalo and limited plains game. The lodge consists of modern ensuite thatched canvas walled bungalows with all modern amenities such as Wi-Fi and air conditioning. The dining and lounge area overlooks a fire pit from where one can view the waterhole. The closest port of entry is Bulawayo International Airport.

Besides the excellent elephant trophies Tsholotsho CAMPFIRE area produces, we are also particularly proud of the success story of this private/public partnership with the local community. We have several social responsibility programmes being funded by the revenue generated through the hunting safaris, such as a local school and clinic as well as water wells being drilled for the outlying communities.
