"Kavinga Safari Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 15 Aug 2021
"Kavinga was the surprise hit of my time in Zimbabwe. While I had spent time near the river and floodplain on a previous trip, this was my first time inland. The combination of foothills, dry riverbeds, rocky cliffs, and old research roads was surreal.

The setup at Kavinga provides everything a traveler needs. And I want to specifically highlight the food as top notch by any measure.

Getting out and walking through the hills along with driving through the riverbeds was a wonderful combination. You never expect to see multiple leopards in any given day (or even one), but here that's a real possibility; and it's not uncommon from what they say. But nothing beats the surprise of watching about a dozen hyena chase an impala into the waterhole in front of the camp and proceeding to finish it off in about 15 minutes.

And getting the opportunity to spend time with only Zimbabweans (both staff and other travelers) offered a really interesting perspective on the country.

Kavinga is quite a gem in Mana; and if you have time to spend in this part, you'll be fascinated with what Kavinga offers." See all these reviews: 18n in Zimbabwe
