Kanga Camp

Kanga Camp is a comfortable tented camp built overlooking the productive Kanga Pan in the interior region of Mana Pools National Park, about 90 minutes’ drive from the Zambezi River.

Kanga Camp offers a very exclusive experience in the inland wilderness area of Mana Pools, away from the busier Zambezi River shoreline. Walking is good in the area, though game drives are generally less productive than along the shoreline. The real attraction is Kanga Pan, a natural waterhole and pumped pan which attracts a huge amount of wildlife during the dry season. The camp is set right on the edge of the pan, which is the only permanent water source for miles around, and during the dry season the pan receives a steady procession of game, especially in the afternoons and evenings. The camp itself is comfortable and well run, with a friendly and welcoming team, good guiding and genuine bush atmosphere. We highly recommend this camp from August to early November for the waterhole action, and a complement to a stay on the river for an in depth Mana Pools experience.


Accommodation is for a maximum of 16 guests is in six comfortable tents which are built onto wooden platforms and set into the tree line around the pan. Each tent has either twin or double beds…
