Kanga Camp: Our View
Set in the most remote part of the World Heritage Site that is Mana Pools is the Kanga Pan. The Kanga Pan is the only known water source in its area 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 – this is where you find Kanga Camp.
Besides game drives and walking excursions, an hour’s drive brings you to the Zambezi flood plains in Mana pools for canoeing and fishing excursions. One of the main highlights during your stay is “Kanga Under the Stars” - an opportunity to sleep out on an open platform and experience the magnificence of an African night lit up solely by a sky studded with stars.
This tented camp has six luxury tents including a family tent, all with en-suite bathroom facilities and outdoor shower and basins overlooking the water hole. The family tent has its own private dining and seating area. The main area has a comfortable lounge and dining area offering you uninterrupted views of their very active water hole. Relax in the upper deck lounge under the shade of a majestic mahogany or sit on the deck below near the splash pool and enjoy Kanga Camp - the old Africa in a new era.

Kanga Camp: The Details
Kanga Camp is built on wooden platforms around the edge of a water pan in a remote area of Mana Pools National Park. Their luxury tents have fans, an en-suite bathroom, flushing toilet, outdoor shower, hot running water and a veranda. Kanga Camp accommodates children from the age of 7 years. One of the luxury tents at Kanga Camp is a romantic honeymoon tent.
The whole camp is solar-powered. A comfortable and relaxing lounge-dining area and splash pool are raised on decking under the shade of huge trees overlooking the pan, usually allowing for excellent wildlife viewing in comfort!
The waterhole at Kanga attracts large concentrations of animals and birds, especially during the dry season. Elephant, lion, wild dog and leopard are frequent visitors. A photographic "hide" under the main decking provides a perfect spot for remarkable wildlife photography without disturbing the animals and birds at the waterhole.
