Changa Safari Camp is a unique, 5-star tented camp on the edge of Lake Kariba within the majestic Matusadona National Park. Situated on a private 4km stretch of beach on Lake Kariba’s shoreline, you would not even know the camp is there at first as it has been built to blend into the bush.
With breathtaking scenery and nestled beneath shady trees, Changa Safari Camp lends itself to total relaxation. Listen carefully for the strident call of the iconic fish eagle and enjoy the unequalled beauty of a Lake Kariba sunset.
Meals are relaxed and laid back, set around a large table in the dining mess or under a canopy of trees on the vast wooden deck overlooking the lake. Scrumptious food is freshly prepared in camp every day by our Chef, always with an imaginative and friendly approach.
Changa Safari Camp invites you to experience this remote wilderness with us and our pledge will be kept if your last thought of the day is – “Can it get any better than this!”
We have 6 standard tents which accommodate 2 people. The camp also has two sets of interconnecting family tents, which allow children to move freely between their tent and their parents’ in complete safety and privacy.
Each one of the eight luxury tents has been created to reflect the environment, providing you with an authentic bush experience. The unique landscape surrounding Changa, provides each tent with its own breathtaking view of the unspoilt environment. Discreetly positioned in the front facing trees, are small sprinklers that may be turned on, inviting a flurry of feathers to your doorstep where you can watch the colorful birdlife darting in and out the spray.
All tents are a classic safari olive canvas and have been mosquito proofed with specialized netting, allowing you to comfortably fall asleep with a gentle breeze and the distant call of the wild.
Things to Do
There are several activities at Changa Safari Camp, providing guests with a choice of how they wish to spend their day. From early morning game walks, fishing for the famed fighting tiger fish and photographing wildlife whilst on a game drive – these are just a few of the adventures on offer.
For those that want to take some time out to relax, you do not have to venture too far from camp to see wildlife as there are regular visitors including elephants, bushbabies, monkeys, squirrels and on the rare occasion, a resident leopard.
Going on safari is an exciting prospect and, for many, when the dust has been wiped off your boots and the hat hung up till next time, there is no greater pleasure than poring over the special moments you’ve captured on camera.
One of the best ways to experience and feel a part of the African bush. Our professional guides have expert knowledge of the area and accompanied by them, you can be introduced to the Matusadona National Park in a completely different way.
Fishing is available throughout the day and we have experienced guides specifically for this activity.
Sanyati Gorge Trips
A short boat ride across the lake will bring you to the scenic Sanyati Gorge, where you can meander peacefully through the steep cliffs for up to 10 km.
