A real surprise!

We loved the location of this camp, set in amongst the trees with the superb waterhole stretching out in front of us. The tents were generally well-spaced giving plenty of privacy. Game viewing at the camp water-hole was exceptional; we saw elephants, buffalo, kudu, impala, leopard, baboons, porcupine, genet, civet, hyena, wild dogs and many birds, including thousands of doves that arrived in waves. Lions could be heard very close by. We hardly needed to leave the camp at all!

Our tent was spacious and well-equipped and there was great attention to detail, probably one of the best layouts we have experienced in a tent.

Service was excellent, our tent was always clean and comfortable and laundry was returned the same day. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Meals and menus were announced by 3 members of staff in English, Tonga and Shona and whilst it was good to hear the musicality of the languages the staff appeared a little uncomfortable doing it.

The food was always of a good standard but there was occasionally some confusion about my specific dietary requirements - on one occasion there was no main dish that I could eat and one of the vegetarians staying there shared his meal with me! The lunch provided for our trip to the river was outstanding and much appreciated.

We particularly enjoyed the walking with Richard and especially our approach to the wild dogs and the time we were able to spend with them. Our game drive to the river was also outstanding. It was exciting but ultimately frustrating watching the elephant which apparently stands on its hind legs to reach high branches. Unfortunately it was feeding from a tree which was JUST within its reach with a good stretch of the trunk!

It was great to have the plunge pool in which to cool off - very welcome in the 40+ temperatures we were experiencing.

Kanga Bush Camp review

Kanga Bush Camp is a very nice camp. Richard and Jillie were excellent hosts and made us feel at home. Staff was friendly and helpful. The camp's location overlooking Kanga Pan provided a great place to watch game and birdlife.

Rooms were private, comfortable and spacious.

Meals were consistently good.

long walking safaris

The camp itself is very charming, even if it's not so easy to reach.

The opportunity of walking safaris is certainly a plus, unfortunately the concession borders on a hunting area and this affects the behaviour of the animals, which seem to be extremely scared of human beings. In fact we weren't really able to spot lots of animals during our walks.

I probably wouldn't go back there considering the long way to reach it.

Kanga Bush Camp review

Lovely setting by the Kanga Pan in the Mana Pools area
What ever time of the day you sat watching from the deck there was always something going on.

We had the place to ourselves so were very fortunate in having such close attention.
Fisher our guide was very knowledgeable about the animals and the bush in general.
Camp staff very helpful and the cooks were very good.

We went on the inaugral night run following a bottle of champagne given by Richard and Gilly ( camp Managers). Saw herd of buffalo ,civet, scrub hare genet. Altogether a lovely place to spend 3 nights
