Chang’s Safari Camp review

A beautiful lodge on Lake Kariba. Super location, excellent food and accommodation. An experience of a lifetime - sitting in our outdoor tub, watching elephants graze along the lakeside, listening to the hippos.

The lake is quite beautiful and unlike anywhere else we have been. The dead trees are extraordinary, magical and atmospheric especially at sunset. Thanks to Campbell for the boat trips on the lake.

Bruce, our guide for most of the time, is extremely knowledgable and we had a great walk and boat trip to the gorge. We were looking forward to tracking the lions on foot, but bumped into them whilst still in the car. The coalition of four males is very impressive.

Sarah is a terrific host and could not do enough to ensure that we had everything we could possibly need. The personal touches she provided were much appreciated.

A lovely camp in a quiet park. Our guide was young and so needs to gain in confidence, but was willing to learn about positioning for photography.

There was a film crew in camp for the start of the trip, which made things more interesting. A great stop for birders as the park offers lots of bird life, but also in camp, they have controllable sprinklers in your “garden” which attract all manner of birds, a great photographic experience.

The food was fabulous and the camp had a great atmosphere. The infinity pool overlooking the lake is lovely. Honourable mention for the lesser Bush babies who also call the lodge home.

Changa Safari Camp review

At Changa, the service again was very good, as was the food. We liked the situation of the lodge, in the bush on the edge of the lake. Our sleeping quarters were excellent.

The managers, Andrew & Jean Riley, are very pleasant. Our guide, Greg, was first class. Typically, we did a morning drive on land and then spent three hours or so in the late afternoon/early evening on the lake, fishing and observing the hippos and, to a lesser extent, crocodiles. On the land trips there was plenty of animal activity, principally impala and elephants, a wonderful lion that we observed from very close up, and a huge amount of different birds, which were very impressive.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Changa.

Changa Camp

This was a very comfortable camp. The position was beautiful, overlooking Lake Kariba. The room was one of the best thought out that we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail was amazing with every possible hook, accessory etc that one could wish for.

The activities were a mixture of game drives and boat trips on the lake. The variety of game was not as wide as we saw in the other national parks we visited but the mixture of land and water trips compensated for that. We met other travellers who were making this camp their last stop for a bit of luxury and R&R and it certainly was appropriate for that.

A highlight was the resident lesser bush baby that slept in the camp office during the day and was easily visible in the trees around the camp at dusk - it was habituated and very cute!

The camp had a swimming pool and the only reason we have given it good for facilities was the fact that the internet connection did not work.
