Changa has a very calm atmosphere and it is wonderful to watch the elephants and hippos from the deck of your 'tent'. The food is excellent and the staff could not do enough for us.

AMAZING!!!! Great team, amazing and exciting animal sightings. Very relaxing area with an occasional dose of adequate adrenaline. Sarah and her team are amazing. If you haven't been to Zimbabwe and you haven't visited the sanyathi gorge you are nowhere close to Zimbabwe

We were here from 23 to 26 September 2016. The food and drink was gourmet; the tents are unique, luxurious and romantic! The sound of hippos and other night life was exhilarating. The spoors of lions having passed a few metres from the camp topped it up. Seeing the lions in the wild was orgasmic! The trip to Sanyati Gorge... More

CHANGA SAFARI CAMP MATUSADONA NATIONAL PARK, ZIMBABWE CHANGA SAFARI CAMP is located on the shores of Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe and provides the unique experience of combined Game & Fishing Safaris. Situated on a private concession in the famed Matusadona National Park, and with its own 4.5 Km of lake shore, you can realize the total raw African experience from tastefully furnished, fan-cooled, spacious deluxe East African-style tented suites, each with its own private deck and stunning views of the mysterious Matusadona Mountains across the inland sea of Lake Kariba.This rich wilderness area offers exceptional game drives as well as walking and fishing safaris, all in the company of highly trained professional guides. Matusadona is best known for huge elephant populations, as well as being one of the last remaining sanctuaries of the endangered Black Rhino. Birdlife is prolific, with 350 species of birds having been identified in the area.With breathtaking scenery and nestled beneath shady trees, the camp lends itself to total relaxation. Listen carefully for the strident call of the iconic fish eagle and enjoy the unequalled beauty of a Lake Kariba sunset.Meals are relaxed and laid back, set around a large table in the dining room or under a canopy of trees on the vast wooden deck overlooking the lake. Scrumptious food is freshly prepared in camp everyday by our Chef, always with an imaginative and friendly approach. We invite you to experience this remote wilderness with us and our pledge will be kept if your last thought of the day is - "Can it get any better than this!" ... more   less
