Kanga Camp is a seasonal bush camp located in a private concession overlooking the Kanga Pan in one of the more remote parts of Mana Pools National Park near the Ruckomechi river. The camp has six en suite Meru-style tents, built with solid wood beams and metal frames, with canvas walls and meshed windows. All feature hot and cold running water, electricity and an open-air bathroom with bucket shower, and a private veranda with views out to the pan.
The communal camp area is raised on decking overlooking the Kanga Pan, which is the only above-surface water source in the area, and where lions, leopards, wild dogs, elephants, buffaloes, various antelope species and a multitude of birds are often seen. Meals are taken communally in the central dining area with cuisine focusing on fresh home cooked meals. There is also a small library, lounge and fire pit area.
While day and night drives are offered in open-sided 4x4 vehicles, the highlight of any stay at Kanga are the walking safaris in the camp's private concession. The area around Kanga Pan is very diverse and has multiple open vlei lines, dry riverbeds and mixed open woodland. This open environment allows for safe close-up encounters with all types of wildlife. Canoeing safaris on the Zambezi can also be organised on request in advance, as well as full-day excursions along the Zambezi river.
