Nanzhila Plains Camp


  • Nanzhila Plains Camp


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.
