Nanzhila Safaris operates in the closest true safari area in Zambia to the Victoria Falls and enjoys nearly 3000 sqkm almost to itself. An incredible variety of wildlife and birding species are to be found across our 2 magnificent camp locations that compliment each other perfectly. Our original Plains Camp and her rolling grasslands has recently been joined by our Lake Camp on the game rich shorelines where the Musa River joins Lake Itezhi-tezhi.
What you will love about Lake and Plains Camp:
Both Plains and Lake Camps are small, intimate bushcamps beautifully set overlooking game rich areas.
Game drives and safari walks at both camps are bound to reveal a wide variety of wildlife and bird species including 4 of the Big 5!
OWNER RUN EXPERIENCE
Your hosts are also the owners, which means you’re assured of faultless attention to detail and hours of stories about life in the bush.
The Nanzhila camps offer an all-round Kafue Experience
The ability to link up Livingstone with the Southern Kafue using Nanzhila Safaris’ Plains Camp has allowed safari enthusiasts to combine the Victoria Falls and a safari experience in a smoother way than any other safari region in Zambia. However, with the addtion of Lake Camp – it means that more of the 3000 square kilometre region known as the Southern Kafue is available for safari lovers heading south through the Kafue from Lusaka to Livingstone or enjoying a safari in the Kafue after having spent a few nights at Victoria Falls.
What the addition of Lake Camp means for safari goers:
PLAINS & LAKE COMBINATION
A combination of the wide open plains in the South and verdant shorelines around Lake Itezhi-tezhi is going to offer an all round Southern Kafue wildlife experience.
GREATER VARIETY OF WILDLIFE
The water dependant mega herbivores like hippo, elephant and buffalo around the lake shorelines will complement the staggering grassland and antelope species common on the plains with the big cat sightings being consistent from both camps.
With the Livingstone to Dundumwezi gate road a mere 3 hours, the development of Lake Camp and improved road to Itezhi-tezhi means getting to the Southern Kafue from Lusaka or the more central river based properties is quicker than ever before!
