Perfectly located within Mana Pools National Park, Kanga Camp is an unspoiled wilderness paradise. Overlooking Kanga Pan, Kanga Camp delivers an authentic safari experience away from the traditional riverside camps of Mana Pools National Park. Apart from the Zambezi River Kanga Pan is the sole source of water in the dry season, this makes it an absolute haven for wildlife bringing them right to your doorstep.
The camp comprises six tents all raised on wooden platforms that provide an elevated view over the Pan. While the Meru-styled tent is simple it boasts floor-to-ceiling mesh windows to let in ample natural light and a cool breeze during the warmer parts of the year. All the tents are complete with en suite bathroom, toilet, outdoor shower, hot water and a private deck.
Kanga Camp also has a family tent with a wraparound terrace facing the pan. Private seating and dining areas for family meals is also included. Guests can relax on the upper deck under the Mahogany tree or sit on the deck below near the splash pool and soak in the uninterrupted views of Kanga Pan’s busy watering hole – this is the perfect “armchair safari”.
This area of Zimbabwe is very hard to access during the rainy season as the dry riverbeds fill with rainwater 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 November.
