Kanga Bushcamp

about Kanga Bushcamp

Kanga Bush Camp is in a remote part of Mana Pools on the isolated Kanga Pan, along the seasonal floodplain of Ruckomechi River. This part of Zimbabwe is a real game magnet, being the only water reserve in quite some distance. The diverse range of habitats here has resulted in a vast array of different species in the area so it is fantastic for wildlife tracking. With the added bonus of being able to get out of your vehicle here and track the animals on foot, safaris here are unforgettable.

Guests stay in solidly-built meru style tents and there are some great facilities in the main area for them to take advantage of.

This original location is very isolated and you will rarely see other travellers whilst out on safari.

lodge details

Style

Comfortable and safe tents in a stunning location, surrounded by the untouched wild.

Setting

Kanga Camp is below the Zambezi River; about 15km away the surrounding landscape has everything from the pools themselves and open vleis to mopane woodland and riverine forests. Access is via chartered flight or road transfer.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 6 Meru style tents, sleeping up to 12 guests, are built from log pillars and metal framework, with canvas as the walls and ceiling. There are large double beds and an en-suite flush toilet, separated by a canvas wall. There is also an outside bathroom with 3 canvas walls, the fourth overlooking the plains. Here you will find a wash basin and safari shower. Each tent has its own private veranda, equipped with an amazing view!

The main area is shaded by large trees and built on raised decking. This intimate area has lots of little quiet hideaways and books to pore over. There is also a bar and lounge area, as well as an extension jutting out into the waters edge, leading to a waterside fire pit.

Kanga Camp also has a splash pool.

Dining

The camp provides home cooked meals which guests can enjoy in the company of the guides and rangers. This is a great time to plan the activities of the day or share stories after your game drives.

Activities

Game drives are done here in open top safari vehicles with professional and knowledgeable guides. These are usually done in both the morning and the evening, and there is the added bonus of being able to leave your vehicle and do some tracking on foot. Canoe safaris on the Zambezi River can also be organised on request.

Child Policy

Children are allowed but this camp is not recommended for under 16’s. Please discuss this with your safari expert.

Responsible Travel

The camp is employing more and more eco-friendly systems as time goes on, even using recycled glass. The emphasis here is on low impact safaris, encouraging walking when possible to lessen the impact on the environment and the wildlife.
