About
Description
Kavinga Safari Camp is a new 14 bedded semi-tented camp situated on a cliff, overlooking the dry Ruckomechi Riverbed, within a private concession on the southern boundary of Mana Pools, Zimbabwe - just 8 More km away from the famous Chitake Spring. En suite rooms are on high platforms, overlooking a large pan, which offers a photographic hide at water level for amazing photos & game viewing. If it's adventure you seek - be it tracking lion on foot, exploring the hills, sitting in our hide for that perfect shot of an elephant closeup, game-driving amongst a herd of buffalo or just admiring the view of the escarpment from your private verandah - Kavinga offers you a unique experience in an untamed wilderness.
