Three tented chalets overlooking the Musa River and Lake Itezhi-tezhi shoreline.
Lake Camp is the new addition to Nanzhila Safaris and perfectly compliments the Plains Camp experience. The focus of Lake Camp is exploring the Southern Kafue wildlife that is found around Lake Itezhi-tezhi. Here, the mega herbivores like elephant, buffalo and hippo are more common than down on the Plains and so the incredible diversity and variety that Nanzhila is known for delivering simply gets broader with the addition of Lake Camp. In addition to the variety of species, the open floodplains and shorelines around the edges of Lake Itezhi-tezhi make for a stunning wildlife experience.
What you will love about Lake camp:
Don’t be surprised to hear buck crunching twigs underfoot, or the ripping sound of branches as elephants strip the trees close by.
The tented chalets are all situated along the tree line, giving guests an unobstructed view of the floodplain and shoreline ahead which has a constant flow of wildlife.
AUTHENTIC BUSH EXPERIENCE
Comfortable beds with mosquito nets are complimented by a large en-suite bathroom and vanity area and expansive covered verandah for midday game viewing.
What you can expect to find at Lake Camp
The location of Lake Camp is very private and in a prime game viewing area of the Southern Kafue. It is also very well positioned between the Nanzhila Plains area further south and the central Kafue River properties up north like Kaingu, Kasabushi, Mawimbi, Mukambi and Ila to name a few. As with Nanzhila Plains Camp, the focus of the rooms at Lake Camp is providing comfortable facilities with the focus being more on what’s happening outside the rooms! The Smith Family attention to detail and focus on warm hospitality is again evident throughout Lake Camp.

What is the accommodation like at Lake Camp
Lake camp consists of 3 safari tents under thatch with flushing toilets and hot water (by donkey boilers). The actual ‘bedroom’ component is smaller than Plains Camp but the Smith’s have combined the vanity and dressing area with a lovely en-suite bathroom. Another change from Plains Camp is the expansion of the covered verandahs to make the most of the views – at Lake Camp the verandahs are longer and more equipped and become your personal game viewing deck!

What safari activities are on offer at Lake Camp
Lake Camp will offer game drives and visits to the Elephant Orphanage. Many of the activities will spend time around the stunning Lake Itezhi-tezhi shoreline and floodplains with views over the Lake. The variety of bird and wildlife species compliments the Plains experience perfectly!
