Kanga Camp is in a private concession in the Mana Pools region, built around a waterhole so you'll have 24 hour wildlife viewing on your doorstep, a veritable 'armchair safari'! You'll be able to explore on foot and by vehicle during your stay for a comprehensive safari experience, with the chance also to experience a night on a platform set beneath huge fig trees in the African bsuh.
Accommodation is in 6 walk-in tents, each with a screened, open air bathroom with running water for the shower, wash basin and toilet. To the front of the bedroom there's a veranda, perfectly positioned for watching animals around the waterhole. The larger family/honeymoon tent offers extra space, day beds, an open plane lounge-dining area.
With accommodation for a maximum of 16 guests, this is an intimate and friendly place to stay. There's a central lounge on a raised deck, shaded by trees. This is where you'll relax between walks and drives, putting your feet up and chatting to other guests. It's also where meals are served, which are eaten as a group, allowing you to swap stories of safari experiences as you dine. There are 2 main decks, with a plunge pool, camp fire and open air lounge. Bush meals in specially selected spots can also be arranged on request.
