Nanzhila Plains Camp


Rating: Deluxe    

Nanzhila Plains Camp overview

Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp is a lovely small camp which was built on the site of the old Nanzhila Rest Camp which had been built in the late 1950's. It now has a large central lounge area and viewing deck with 6 rooms either side of the main lapa - 3 stone and thatch chalets and 3 tented rooms.

The camp is situated in the remote and seldom visited southern sector of Kafue National Park and is accessed from Ngoma airstrip around 2 hours game drive away.

The area around Nanzhila consists of lush woodlands of Miombo, Zambezi Teak and Mopane, beautiful plains and the stream that runs through it, after which the lodge is named.

There are good populations of a number of antelope species including Roan and Sable, Reedbuck, Defassa Waterbuck, Oribi, Hartebeest and Eland as well as all the major carnivores, with a particularly strong population of Wild Dog and Cheetah.

The birdlife is amazing throughout the year, and sightings can almost be guaranteed of the endemic Black-cheeked Lovebird, the Wattled Crane, Ground Hornbill and Saddle-billed Stork amongst others. This is a superb location for keen birders.

Julia Gapper

"Hosts were great - just the sort of people you want running a camp. I was unprepared for the cold but it was wonderful to have a hot water bottle placed in the bed by the staff! Very much appreciated the reliable and extensive transfer arrangements, the welcoming atmosphere, and the obvious commitment of all the staff to the operation. The only slight complaint I have is the lateness of the evening meal - one evening we didn't sit down until nearly 9pm as we waited for a tour group to return. With early mornings and regular activities, we were tired enough to want our beds at that time! Perhaps the meal could have been offered in two sittings..."

"This is a lovely little camp but there is not much in the way of big game or even mammals in this area.  Birding is superb and the food here is great.  The surrounding area of southern Kafue was badly poached and the game around here is still very skitish, hopefully this will improve in the coming years."
