Changa Safari Camp Reviews & Information

Use the drop down below to find out more information about Changa Safari Camp.

Overlooking Lake Kariba, Changa Safari Camp is sure to give a sense of wonder unlike no place on Earth! Located in Matusadona National Park, Zimbabwe in a private concession with four and a half kilometres of private lake shoreline.

Each of the six double or twin en-suite deluxe tents and two luxurious family tents, are individually styled with tasteful African influences, can sleep a total of only twenty guests, ensuring a feeling of exclusivity. Wake up to the smell of coffee as its hand-delivered to your door, eat your breakfast al-fresco on the wooden decking enhanced by the sounds of the African bush and the ripples of the adjacent water.

The central area, which has wifi, contains a well-appointed lounge and library, a separate dining room enabling you to choose to have meals shared around a long table or set in a private spot on the sands of the private beach. The separate bar area allows you to relax around after dinner drinks, and the infinity swimming pool and spacious decking to entice you to relax and feel at one with the natural rhythm of the African day. All areas are beautifully finished and overlook the stunning views that surround you.

The camp has a solar-electricity supply and a generator. All outings are designed to enhance your experience of being in the African wilderness. A variety of walks with one of the professional guides are available, from the shorter ones along the edge of the lake, where you will be amazed by how nature works as one to the more adventurous following the route the elephants take into the mountains.

Or take it easy and be taken on a safari drive in a 4x4 where you will have the opportunity to see several favourite wildlife spots known to the rangers. Take a day to fish for tiger fish with an experienced guide who will assist you to land that catch, or choose to sit and watch the fantastic array of birdlife who visit the water's edge. The sundowner boat cruise is sure to take your breath away, as you watch the sunset reflect on the water of Kariba and surrounding mountains.

By Air
Flying in over Lake Kariba is a magical experience, and will provide you with an understanding of the expanse Lake Kariba is. You will enjoy views of the Matusadona mountains, the islands, and the picturesque image of the white trees peeping out of the still water with herds of elephants roaming around the edge of the lake.

Flights from Hwange, Harare, Mana Pools and Victoria Falls are available.
The chartered flights will land at Fothergill Island or Kariba Airport, depending on the weather, where the Changa staff team will greet you. Then its either a scenic 15-minute game-drive to Changa from Fothergill Island or a forty-five-minute cruise on the boat leaving from Kariba’s Marineland Harbour.

By Road:

Leaving from Harare by road, it will take you about four hours, 370km, to get to arrive in Kariba, where you will join the boat transfer at the Marineland Harbour and continue your journey with a forty-five-minute cruise across the lake. We advise you to book that you book this in advance with us.

If you are a 4x4 expert, you may choose to take the self-drive option directly into Changa Safari Camp.
The travel time from Harare is approximately ten hours, a map and directions on request.

For those driving through Zimbabwe, either from Victoria Falls or Harare direction, there is the option of a boat ride that takes you across the length of Lake Kariba – 1250km. With a 22 to 24-hour boat ride where you can relax and take in the beautiful views accompanied by your vehicle travelling with you. The Kariba Ferry runs on set departures, and this must be planned and booked in advance.


On site parking facilities are provided for guests.
