Vundu Camp is situated in the heart of Mana Pools National Park overlooking the Zambezi River. The camp is a very animal-active-camp with elephants visiting daily to drink and feed on the nutritious ana tree pods, resident leopards, wildlife regularly frequenting the camp's nearby waterhole and wild dog and lion also passing through. The main lounge and dining area are under thatch and elevated providing guests with picturesque views of the Zambezi River.

Bushlife Safaris has an incredible professional guiding team, who can safely guide guests for up-close wildlife encounters. The activities available at Vundu Camp include game walks on foot, game drives, canoeing, fishing and sight-seeing on the pontoon. There is no set daily itinerary for these activities, and they are tailored for guests’ preferences.

Game Drive Walking Safari Canoeing

Children are welcome however there are no children’s programs.
The minimum age for children is 6 years old and they request that a private vehicle/guide is booked for children 12 and under. The minimum age for walking and canoeing is 10 years old at the guide’s discretion (we personally would not recommend children under 12 years on these activities). 
There is one family unit

Vundu Camp operates from 1st May - 30th November

Bushlife Safaris is actively involved in wildlife conservation in Mana Pools, and community engagement through Bushlife Conservancy and Bushlife Support Unit.

Bushlife Conservancy is their funding partner, which is based in the USA, and Bushlife Support Unit is their boots on the ground anti-poaching team. Over the last year, their focus has been on collaring the iconic elephants, and the Large Carnivore Project with Zimparks which also involves collaring. The Bushlife Painted Wolf Conservancy is a branch of Bushlife Support Unit Trust and specialises in the research and conservation of the African Wild Dog. Nick Murray was the lead guide for the Painted Wolf episode of the global BBC Earth Dynasties series narrated by Sir David Attenborough, which brought much-needed attention to the plight of this endangered species.
