Kanga Camp is an African Bush Camps property set within a private concession linked to the Mana Pools National Park, which is easily accessed by a game drive of approximately 1-hour. This intimate, six tented camp, is set back from the Zambezi away from the more visited Zambezi riverbank and offers a fantastic, different safari experience to the national park itself.
African Bush Camps is owned by the celebrated Zimbabwean guide Beks Ndlovu, himself a veteran of many years spent guiding in the area. At Kanga, Beks has created a safari experience which focuses on a private safari experience where tracking animals on foot with the highly qualified guides is a special experience.
This area of Zimbabwe is very hard to access during the rainy season as the dry riverbeds fill with rain water flowing from the escarpments. As a result, Kanga Camp is only open in the shoulder and dry seasons from April through to the end of October.
When to visit
In the dry season you don't even need to go on the afternoon game drive...just sit on the deck and watch the action unfold!
