Changa Safari Camp


Authenic safari charm on the game-rich shores of Lake Kariba

Secluded on the shore of Lake Kariba, Changa Safari Camp sits within a private concession of Matusadona National Park. A retreat from the stresses of everyday life, this rustic oasis  has been thoughtfully designed. Against a shaded backdrop of mopane trees, the swimming pool is a delight overlooking gorgeous views of the lake. Inside, the open-air lounge invites you to relax in giant leather sofas while the bar, fashioned from the hull of an old boat, is an unapologetic spot for sunset G&Ts. There are just eight tented rooms in the camp, each one designed as an authentic bush escape. The views are fantastic, and the African-chic interiors ooze classic safari, with olive canvas walls, a private deck and an outdoor bathtub indulgently decorated with pretty tree-lanterns and candles.

This is the perfect retreat for an authentic safari experience. Here, superb local guides will accompany you on two game drives a day – expertly tracking game in the wild and game-rich landscapes of Matusadona National Park. For a different vantage point, track buffalo on foot with an expert guide or take to the lake on a boating cruise to see the wildlife on the banks. If being land-based is enough, the park is a prolific bird-watching haven, or you can  try your hand at fishing on the lakeshore; a vast variety of endemic species can be found here, from the world-famous tiger fish to the mighty tilapia bream.
