Kanga Camp

Kanga Camp is set in private concession on the edge of Mana Pools National Park. The camp is built around Kanga Pan, a permanent water hole, which as the only source of permanent water in the area, draws in incredible game during the dry season.

Kanga Camp
  • Enjoy an afternoon sitting in the shade of the trees on the camp deck and watch as the game floods through the bush to drink from the pan in front of camp

  • Spend a night in the 'platforms', raised decks in the trees above a dry riverbed - an incredible experience under the African night sky

  • Track animals directly from camp with one of the expertly trained guides

  • Take a day trip into the national park itself and enjoy a picnic lunch on the banks of the Zambezi

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.

Top tip:

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!
