nanzhila plains

The closest big game safari camp to Livingstone and Victoria Falls which retains a wonderful sense of wilderness and isolation.

The Classic Kafue package begins in Livingstone with a 3 hour road transfer to Dundumwezi Gate where you will be met by the Nanzhila Plains safari team. Enjoy a game drive into camp and settle into the beautiful rooms with views over the dambo to enjoy a 3 night stay. Nanzhila is the closest true safari destination in Zambia to the Victoria Falls and enjoys nearly 3000 sqkm of the Kafue National Park to itself. An incredible variety of wildlife and birding species as well as a quite magnificent location overlooking the dambo make Nanzhila one of the most memorable safari camps in Zambia.

what you will love:

owner run experience

Your hosts at Nanzhila are the owners – Steve and Cindy Smith – which means you are assured of faultless attention to detail and hours of stories around the fire about life in the bush!

DAMBO FACING ROOMS

The chalets or safari tents all have beautiful views over the dambo and the gauzed windows allow all the wonderful sounds of the African night to reach you clearly!

LAND BASED ACTIVITIES

Game drives and safari walks around Nanzhila are bound to reveal a wide variety of wildlife and bird species including 4 out of the Big 5!

day 4 – 7: 3 nights

kaingu safari lodge

A serene lodge on the banks of the Kafue River

After a hearty breakfast, we will leave Nanzhila Plains and head out through the Ngoma Forest towards Lake Itezhi-tezhi (there is also the option of stopping to visit the Elephant Orphanage) before arriving at the ITT shoreline. Stopping at an appropriate shady spot, we will enjoy a picnic lunch watching the antics of the wildlife around the lake before meeting the team from Kaingu. Kaingu is magnificently situated in the riparian woodland on the banks of the Kafue River with stunning views. African finfoot, hippo and a wide variety of birdlife are on constant display and river based boat cruises and canoeing is a must on this portion of the Kafue River. Kaingu also conducts game drives in a stunning section of the Kafue National Park.

what you will love:

wildlife encounters

As Kaingu is river-based, it offers a number of bird and wildlife species that are not found in Nanzhila so the combination of the 2 camps really gives you the full Kafue Safari feel!

 

river facing tents

The riverside accommodation at Kaingu is stunning with constant bird activity and the honking of hippos in the background. These well appointed safari tents are beautiful, comfortable and perfectly positioned.

river BASED activities

The section of the Kafue River around Kaingu is stunning and the boat cruises and canoe trips are an absolute must. The variety of river activities form a great complement to the other more traditional safari activities on offer.
