Just an hour from Kasane Airport lies a refuge in an exclusive setting called Camp Kazuma and it lies hidden in the trees of the untouched Kazuma Forest Reserve in the famous Chobe region of Botswana. Discover luxury open plan canvas and stone suites in this wildlife mecca, the best of both worlds, for sure.
Camp Kazuma is ideally located on the famous elephant corridor between Chobe and Hwange, on the border with Zimbabwe, and it’s remote and stylish so a must-see destination on your Botswana safari.
Elephants are common at the waterhole in front of the camp, under the mopane trees, and other wildlife moves around within the camp boundaries for incredible ongoing wildlife sightings all day. It’s the ideal habitat for such creatures, the borders of Chobe National Park and the renowned Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, constantly being recognised for its eco-tourism initiatives and commitment to people and planet in sustainable tourism model.
It is ironic that Kazuma means ‘hunter’ that the camp is committed to saving some 200 000 elephants living in this region as part of the Elephants Without Borders programme. Elephants dominate your vision every day, enormous breeding herds and bachelor herds and they move on their ancient routes over borders, across farms and roads, to food and water.
This is the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA) and Kazuma Camp is one of the top boutique lodges here. Privileges guests at this Chobe camp can explore 11 800 ha of untamed Kazuma Forest Reserve and the open plains of the Kazuma Pans. Look out for all majestic creatures you ever dreamed of seeing – rare sable antelope, roan, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, lion and leopard on early morning and evening game drives.
Camp Kazuma’s dedication to nature conservation is evident in its green ethos that permeates the camp design and facilities – all life is revered with the camp being built on stilts and all wooden walkways are above the vegetation.
The 7 luxury suites retain their elegance in an off the grid set up and an innovative eco-sewage system that recycles all kitchen waste and water. Solar power and a off grid Photo Voltaic system stores energy in batteries during the day, for the night’s usage. Camp Kazuma wants to decrease their carbon footprint and it’s working.
The chic tented chalets still offer classic amenities from Victorian bath tubs to fancy leather couches, silver service teas sets, outside showers, king size beds and lovely private decks.
Exciting night drives, boat cruises on the river, bush walks and bird watching all focus on the diversity of wildlife Camp Kazuma. Other activities centre around a fascinating community outing to see the local school, a market and tribal life or a day trip to the World Heritage Site, Vic Falls, for a lunch and walk around this eye-catching natural wonder.
See thousands of elephants at Camp Kazuma, situated in the main corridor for these majestic mammals between Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe and Chobe National Park in Botswana, a luxury safari never to be forgotten.
The camp is easily accessible from Kasane airport, a mere hour’s drive, yet remains remote and wild, in a haven of grassy plains and rivers. The Kazuma Forest Reserve is a special conservation area and the lodge of the same name, which means ‘hunter’, actually goes out of its way to conserve the elephants and all biodiversity in the region.
Eco principles make the camp work well – solar energy and geysers, water recycling systems, batteries and raised boardwalks to ease the pressure on nature. Welcome to a private and exclusive safari lodge with a green conscience located on more than 20 000 hectares of private game viewing concession.
There are only 7 tented chalets, allowing an intimate camp experience too and fewer cars out driving to find wildlife. Other activities include wellness treatments and massages, boat cruises, birdwatching, bush walks and game viewing all day from your private deck overlooking the active waterhole.
Sit around the fire pit at night after an exciting night drive and star gaze, eating stunning African cuisine made fresh and tasty. Large deck areas, luxury furnishings and Victorian bath tubs entice guests to relax in classic safari style, for sure.
