kanga-campOn arrival to Victoria Falls airport you are met and assisted to your flight to Mana Pools. Here you stay at Kanga Camp.

At Kanga, the most unique and exciting activity is tracking wildlife on foot with a professional guide: the possibility to leave your vehicle, or even walk out of the camp with an experienced professional guide is a rare experience in National Parks, and this is one of the best walking territories in Africa. You will enjoy thrilling nature walks to areas unreachable by car, and get even closer to nature and the animals. The Kanga pan is the only perennial water source for quite a distance, and  provides a regular watering point for elephant, buffalo and an array of plains game and their associated predators (particularly lion and wild dog).

Day 4 – 6 Hwange : Somalisa Camp

You can look forward to guided walks and game drives, as well as game viewing from tucked away hides. All are led by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you.

Each of Somalisa’s six canvas tents is decorated to tell the story of Africa; from its ancient roots to colonial opulence. Visit the camp’s main area to read at the library, relax at the sitting area, or lounge in swimming pool. Somalisa Camp endeavours to be low-impact, utilizing solar lighting out of respect for the surrounding environment.
