Mana Pools National Park

Kanga Camp


Mana forests

In a private concession deep in the forests of Mana Pools National Park, Kanga Camp is surrounded by an utterly untouched wilderness. It takes its name from the adjacent Kanga Pan whose waters attract off manner of wildlife during the dry season.

Six Meru-style tents sit raised on individual wooden platforms for an elevated view over the pan. Simple yet elegant, each boasts floor-to-ceiling mesh windows to let in ample natural light and a light breeze, en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers. There’s a larger family unit with extra beds and a secluded honeymoon tent with a rolltop bath.

The main area has a refreshing plunge pool, dining area and deck area over a wildlife hide where you can watch and wait for the elephants to come to you.

    The Hide

    A highlight for photographers, Kanga’s unique hide offers a beautiful way to experience nature from a safe, immersive vantage. Capturing wildlife during a copper sunset bathed in the soft, amber light of ‘magic hour’ is an experience not to be missed.

Community & Culture

The African Bush Camps Foundation works with the local communities with the goal of community upliftment through tourism by creating a long-lasting positive impact.


As a company operating within the travel, tourism, and conservation space, African Bush Camps know the importance of making every effort to build their camps in a sustainable way. Sustainability is embedded in the design of each of their camps with materials locally sourced and low impact construction, especially so with tented camps like Kanga which is also solar powered.
