What guests are saying about Plains Camp

“Miles and miles to yourself!
Nanzihla Camp was just perfect. Great location in the middle of nowhere with outlook onto a game rich pan. Staff and management were very pleasant, knowledgeable and happy to share their wealth of experience. No generators no noise just the bush. Blissful. We had great game drives and saw some rare sightings – serval, and the blue cheeked lovebirds. Also lion. The Kafue Park has amazing potential.”
– November 2021

“The prize of the Kafue! Words are never enough to convey the true magic of places such as Nanzhila Plains. Highlights included sighting 7 lion cubs, 2 honey badgers, a Serval, hyena and a porcupine.”

“Unbelievable hospitality!
From the moment we arrived at camp we felt very much at home. We enjoyed nights around the fire, exceptional meals & so many lion sightings! We hope to return again in the near future.”

August 2019,  TripAdvisor


“A hidden gem… particular mention must go to our guides for arranging a full blown lion hunt with cubs on our first outing. This followed by six cheetahs. We will return.”
