This is a hard review to write and therefore rather lengthy, as in some ways we really loved this camp. African Bush Camps is a great company, with very good staff and guides. We were blessed to have Bono as our guide for the 4 days we spent here, and he is certainly a great guide! Sadly the wildlife here...

The camp is beautifully situated overlooking a pan. They made my birthday weekend special and unforgettable. The rooms are superb, the outdoor shower was amazing. I showered whilst watching elephants shower at the pan:-). The services, food, care - everything was perfect. The team are friendly and King, our guide, was excellent. Thank you everyone.

We didn't go out in the truck - just stayed and did an armchair safari from the deck all the usual together with Leopards, lion, serval, porcupines, hyena, honey badger and mongooses. Good food and a good guide Kingsley.

Arrival at Kanga Camp was special, it's not often you have an elephant at the bar area looking in, still a dangerous elephant but he was a regular visitor at the Camp. The tented accommodation was very good with large beds and large outdoor shower/toilet area. Camp unfenced so you need to be escorted early evening or at night. Camp...

Hello Thank you for reviewing Kanga Camp! We are delighted to hear your feedback!

Dear Chris Thanks you for your delightful review of Kanga Camp. We love to hear back from guests and their stories! How exciting that you got to see a kill right in front of camp.

Walking and game-drive activities in the area can be complimented with trips to the Zambezi flood plain experience. Water based activities such as fishing and canoeing can be arranged in advance and on special request. Camp opens:from May to October included. Rates are all inclusive. ... more   less
