African Bushcamps - Kanga Camp

Mana Pools

Kanga Camp is situated within a private concession in Mana Pools National Park and is a very special untouched wilderness paradise. The camp lies adjacent to the remote Kanga Pan and aside from the Zambezi River many miles away, this pan is the sole source of water in the dry season, making this an absolute haven for wildlife. This diverse area has multiple vlei lines and mixed woodland types from Mopane woodland to Jesse bush and riverine forests. Kanga Camp offers an "arm-chair" safari in the hot season, where animals will come to the watering hole right opposite the camp and guests do not have a go on a game drive if they don't want to!
