Vundu Camp is a small camp with a long-standing reputation. It lies amongst a grove of ebony and tamarind trees on the banks of the Zambezi River, in the heart of Mana Pools National Park. The surrounding landscape is made up of game-rich flood plains interspersed with oxbow lakes, the remnants of old meanders of the Zambezi River. The camp’s riverside location means that in the dry season game is pretty much guaranteed, as the animals come from the parched interior of the park to the river to drink.
Our view of Vundu Camp
Vundu Camp comes with few pretences and without the luxury, or safari chic, that most new safari camps and lodges seem to aspire to. Also, being blunt and erring on the side of pessimism, it’s not always a highly social camp, and so may not the place for you if this is a vital ingredient of a successful trip. However, in terms of purely the safari experience – which boils down to the activities, area, the game and the guiding – we rate Vundu as one of the finest on the subcontinent. Mana Pools is a really stunning park; the game in this area is great; and the guiding is absolutely top-notch.
