      Kavinga Camp

      Raised Lodges with Views in a Mana Pools Private Concession

      Kavinga Safari Camp is situated in a private concession in the southern part of Mana Pools National Park, and opened in 2016. The camp is set on a cliff overlooking the magnificent Ruckomechi riverbed with the extraordinary backdrop of the Zambezi Escarpment Mountains. Just below is a wildlife-frequented pan with a carefully-disguised viewing hide at its edge, allowing incredible, close-up, photographic opportunities. Kavinga Safari Camp consists of five comfortable raised lodges, built on the edge of the cliff, facing east, with a view of the rising sun above the magnificent Zambezi Valley floor. Each lodge unit has been designed with an emphasis on privacy and is surrounded by insect repellent gauze allowing the air to circulate contributing to maximum coolness. Inside are two comfortable beds and en-suite bathroom facilities. A veranda falls in line with the edge of the cliff, in front of each lodge, giving a feeling of infinite space. The central dining and lounge area have a spacious deck providing a magnificent view across the dry riverbed and to the pan below. There is a fire pit by which to relax at night, gazing at the stars and looking out for nocturnal visitors. Enjoy your delicious dinner with a glass of wine to the sounds of lions calling and hyenas whooping. Approximately 5.5 miles from the lodge is the renowned Chitake Spring, which has a legendary reputation for superb game viewing and predators. The herds of buffalo and other animals that drink at the Chitake Spring through the dryer months also visit Kavinga, as there is another spring in the Ruckomechi River below the camp. Most evenings, herds of elephant gather in the riverbed providing a wonderful wildlife spectacle and shyer species, like leopard, visit the pan right below the camp under the cover of darkness. The professional guides have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge about the movements of the various species in the area. This has enabled them to allow incredible photographic opportunities so that guests can capture once-in-a-lifetime shots. Activities at the camp include walking, tracking, exploring the hills and river systems, studying the birds, or simply relaxing in camp.

        Game-Viewing Hide

        When the animals can't see you, they go about their business as if you aren't even there. A game or photo hide allows you to get closer for some incredible views and photos.

        Night Drive

        At night, the nocturnal animals awaken and treat you to a show that daylight game drives miss.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
