Kanga Camp

Quietly secluded, Kanga Camp offers the luxury of a true wilderness experience in the beautiful Mana Pools National Park. Situated along the floodplains of the Ruckomechi River in its own private concession, the camp offers an array of game viewing possibilities, walking safaris and game drives. For a more relaxed game viewing experience, the waterhole around which the camp is built is always very popular with the local wildlife.

The accommodation at camp affords guests an authentic under canvas experience, with 6 spacious Meru style tents all of which are comfortable and possess large twin or double beds. In between activities guests can relax on their private veranda and enjoy the fantastic views over the waterhole. Solar power provides lighting in the tents, helping to minimise the camp's carbon footprint. All tents feature en-suite bathrooms, with flush toilets and showers. For couples, the honeymoon suite at the property boasts a private section with a large bath.

Protected from the elements by a large canvas roof, the main area at Kanga is elevated off the ground on wooden platforms. Here, guests will find the lounge, bar and dining room and plunge pool- an excellent place to relax during the day.
