#5 of 18 Speciality lodging in Mana Pools National Park
Kavinga Safari Camp is a 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 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.

From the comfortable, clean, lovely accommodations to the incredible staff, delicious, fresh food and amazing guides, Kavinga Safari Camp is unforgettable. We spent some of our honeymoon here and could not have asked for a better experience. Being able to watch elephants come to the watering hole right in front of the camps was a big highlight. Amazing walking safaris in the morning with Mark and Luke and game drives in the evening were the best. Thank you to Theresa for running the camp so well! We will be back.

Our stay from start to finish, and everything in between was fantastic. Our rooms were very comfortable and had the best view of the pan. (Rooms 6 & 7) The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. The guides were knowledgeable and had a knack for being in the right place at the right time for all our sightings! Would definitely recommend a visit to this little eden tucked away in the mana pools area!

We stayed for 3 nights in October. In a semi tent on a high platform with an amazing view. Mano Pools is a beautiful destination. The staff were wonderful, attentive, thoughtful in a pleasant way. Young and enthusiastic. Flexibility of the guides. Food is excellent. Great sightings. Also the watering hole. The hide was awesome. We get there amazing photos. Wildlife nearby. You sit at the table and the game walks by...Game drives were excellent. A great stay. Thank you all.

Had an amazing 3 night stay just before the rains hit. The animal sightings were absolutely out of this world. The camp is beautiful and as wild as you can get these days. The staff were wonderful, attentive without being overwhelming. The attention to detail and the food was excellent. Definitely visit in the cooler months and before the rains start.
