Kanga Camp is an untouched wilderness paradise, situated within a private concession in the Mana Pools National Park. The camp is situated adjacent to the seasonal Kanga Pan offering a truly authentic Mana Pools Safari experience. The Zambezi River is many miles away, therefore the Kanga Pan is the sole source of water during dry seasons, creating a haven for wildlife. Kanga Camp works well in collaboration with Zambezi Expeditions where you can enjoy the excitement of canoeing as well as catch and release fishing on the Zambezi River.
With sustainable tourism in mind, Kanga Camp is fully solar-powered and features six spacious tents that are raised on wooden platforms to take advantage of the exclusive Kanga Pan. All tents offer an elegant yet simplistic approach to design offering floor-to-ceiling mesh windows allowing for ample natural lighting and a light breeze. These tents are equipped with fans, an en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet, outdoor shower, hot running water and a secluded veranda.
The family tent is quite unique, boasting a wraparound terrace facing the pan and offering private seating and dining areas. For couples exploring Zimbabwe, the honeymoon tent features a rolltop bath on the adjoining deck which is perfect for a romantic starlit bath.
The inviting upper deck lounge under the shade of a mahogany tree is a super place to slip away to for some quiet time. Find refreshing respite at the plunge pool. Every home-style comfort is taken care of at this Kanga safari lodge, even a battery charging station for your all-important cameras.
To experience Mana Pools efficiently, Kanga Camp has tailored several activities to make the most out of this untouched land. Enjoy walking safaris and exciting game drives led by qualified rangers and guides who love sharing their knowledge. Keeping step with African Bush Camps’ family-friendly nature, children over the age of 7 are welcome at Kanga. Due to the adventurous nature of this Kanga safari lodge, however, walking safaris are restricted to children over the age of 16.
The Mana Pools National Park is regarded as one of Zimbabwe’s best parks and is one of the finest wilderness areas in Africa. Mana Pools National Park is a superb safari destination suited for wildlife enthusiasts of all sorts. Situated at the northernmost point of Zimbabwe straddling the Zambian border, Mana Pools is remarkably beautiful: a riverine wilderness on the Zambezi River of pools, floodplains, baobab trees and forests that feels totally remote and never gets crowded.
The park is famous for its huge elephant herds and is known for great sightings of lion and leopard as well as being one of the best places in Africa to find endangered wild dogs. The appeal of the park is not just its wildlife – it’s how you get to experience the bush in immersive ways: staying in unfenced campsites in the midst of the wilderness and going on walking and canoeing safaris to see animals without the noise of a car. Mana Pools is also one of the only parks in Africa where you can walk without a guide (although this isn’t recommended for safety reasons unless you have a lot of bush experience).
Staying in one of Mana Pool’s exclusive unfenced campsites along the Zambezi River is a highlight for many intrepid visitors to the park. Booking one of these campsites for just your group means you’ll be able to have a totally wild experience in the bush with no one else around – just the wild animals that might wander in between your tents.
Mana Pools is one of Africa’s best places to do walking safaris – the thin vegetation means that visibility is excellent, so you’ll have the chance to get up close to big game. In addition, the walking guides in the park are among the best in Africa.
Canoeing safaris in Mana Pools are an incredible way to experience raw nature at its best: you spend your days paddling along the Zambezi past pods of hippos and scores of animals drinking on the banks, and at nighttime, you’ll camp under the stars on untouched islands.
