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!
After a hearty breakfast, we leave Nanzhila Plains and head 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 Mawimbi Bush Camp. This camp is situated on the riverbank of the beautiful Kafue River and is the perfect destination for water activities, bird watching and photographic opportunities as you have a superb dambo behind the camp and a beautiful stretch of river in front..
what you will love:
tented safari camp
The riverside accommodation is stunning with constant bird activity and the sounds of the wild in the background. These well appointed safari tents are beautiful comfortable and perfectly positioned.
The section of the Kafue River around Mawimbi is stunning and the canoe trips are an absolute must on this trip to complement a bush walk experience.
As Mawimbi is river-based, it offers a different perspective to the game viewing experience to Nanzhila making the 2 camps a superb and complementary combination.
