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 Painted 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.

The Robins Camp area is made up of a mosaic of vleis (open grassland), rocky outcrops and woodland making it an exceptionally beautiful area to visit. The area has the highest concentration of lion in the Park, large herds of buffalo and exceptional plains game.
” One amazing thing about Robins is the wildlife and scenery. Large vlei’s and open mopane woodland make easy to see wildlife. In 2 days we saw 25 species of large mammal and 19 raptors!! A highlight was a herd of over 1,000 Buffalo at Little Toms and then 2 km down the road 2 lionesses and a huge male lion. “
