Bush Camp (Mana Pools National Park) Zimbabwe
In a rebellious break from the traditional river-fronted
camps on the Lower Zambezi, Kanga is located an hour
"inland" on the Kanga Pan, one of Mana Pools more remote
areas. The area is perfectly undeveloped and so is ideal for
exploring on foot. The key to Kanga is the pan which, as the
only perennial water source for quite a distance, provides a
regular watering point for elephant, buffalo and an array of
plains game and their associated predators (particularly
lion and wild dog).
Kanga Camp is set in the most remote part of the World
Heritage Site of Mana Pools National Park in the Kanga Pan,
not too far from Chitake Springs. This diverse area has a
multiple of open vlei lines, river systems of the Ruckomechi
River, and mixed woodland types from Mopane woodland to
Jesse bushes and riverine forests. The Kanga Pan itself is
the only known water source available throughout the year,
making it a hub for wildlife and a delight to explore on
foot. Pristine and undeveloped, this area gives you a pure,
unspoilt, private African safari experience.
The 12 bedded tented camp has en-suite bathroom
facilities and outdoor shower and basins overlooking the
water hole. One of the tents is a family tent with its own
private dining and seating area.
The main area has a comfortable lounge and dining area
offering you uninterrupted views of a very active water
hole. Relax in the upper deck lounge under the shade of a
mahogany or sit on the deck below near the splash pool and
enjoy Kanga − the old Africa in a new era.
Activities will include game drives in open four-wheel
drive vehicles and night drives, but the most unique and
exciting activity is tracking wild life on foot with a
professional guide: the possibility to leave your vehicle,
or even walk out of the camp with an experienced
professional guide is a rare experience in National Parks,
and this is one of the best walking territories in Africa.
You will enjoy thrilling nature walks to areas
unreachable by car, and get even closer to nature and the
Kanga is the only private concession in Mana Pools: so
you are unlikely to meet anyone when on game-viewing
excursions, and you will get a true sense of privacy.
Canoeing safaris on the Zambezi can be organized on request
in advance, as well as full-day excursions to the Zambezi
One of the main highlights during your stay is “Kanga
Under the Stars” − an opportunity to sleep on an open
platform and experience the magnificence of an African night
lit up solely by a sky studded with stars.
