Kanga Camp is in the far reaches of Mana Pools - a World Heritage Site - in northern Zimbabwe. It's a sprawling area of waterways and diverse landscapes, offering a superb safari experience in an 'untouched' wilderness paradise, teeming with game.

Small, luxury camp

There are just 12 beds in 6 luxury safari tents at Kanga Camp. Each tent is en-suite with an open-air shower overlooking the active waterhole. One of the tents is a family unit with its own seating and dining areas. The honeymoon suite also has a romantic, alfresco bath...

Main camp

Shaded by ancient mahogany trees, the upper lounge and dining deck at Kanga is spacious and comfortable - offering uninterrupted views over the waterhole, and the surrounding grassy plains.

Kanga is in a diverse landscape, set on multiple vlei lines on the complex Ruckomechi River system, with mixed woodland types mixed with grasslands and marshy areas that attract a large variety of wildlife and birds - excellent for exploring on foot. The Kanga Pan in front of the camp is the only perennial water source in the area, making it a hub where game congregate all year round.

Varied game activities

Game drives (night and day), birdwatching and bush walks with an experienced guide are all part of daily life at Kanga. An hour's drive away is the Zambezi floodplains of Mana where you can fish and go game-viewing by canoe. By prior arrangement, it's also possible to enjoy long-term stays at Chitake Springs. The area is known for its lion sightings, but also the rare, lesser spotted game like leopard, civet, genet, honey badger and a variety of plains game, including the large eland and other antelope.

Getting there

Because of its remoteness, the best, easiest way to get there is by air. It's a 2½ hour flight from Victoria Falls to nearby Dandawa airstrip and a 1½ houf flight from Harare. By road, it's a gruelling 4 -5 hour drive from Vic Falls - and only experienced 4x4 drivers are advised to attempt this.

Our take on Kanga Camp

Kanga is a little oasis of luxury, warm hospitality and excellent safari opportunity in one of the most unspoilt, pristine areas of southern Africa. It's one of those difficult-to-get-to places, but we believe you should try to get there - at least once in your life. You won't ever regret it.
