Changa Safari Camp in Matusadona National Park

Set on the shores of Lake Kariba, with views of the Matusadona mountains, Changa Safari Camp promises all visitors a classic Zimbabwe wildlife experience in a five star tented lodge in a private Matusadona National Park concession.

Welcome to a place that captures the essence of natural beauty, oozing serenity, seclusion and an unusual blend of landscapes, views and scenery. It was founded by a team who share a passion for conservation, the land and the magnificent African wildlife. Notice how close to nature and true wilderness you can get – you’ll find yourselves in awe of the majestic and gentle elephants that you share the land with. 

Changa Safari Camp radiates a warm, welcoming and personal hospitality, and the team will be delighted to get to know you and ensure that you get the most out of your safari experience. It’s your turn to be cosseted in luxury in one of 8 spacious tents that feature outdoor showers and deep chic baths plus private verandas and floor-to-ceiling windows. Comfy beds, tasteful linens and décor complete the interiors of these lavish havens of tranquillity. 

The camp is perfectly located in the shade of huge old Mopane trees, the swimming pool almost merging with the Lake where guests love to just sit and gaze over the water, cocktail in hand. Retire to the open air open plan lounge just up the boardwalk under thatch and decorated in wonderful vibrant ethnic touches, mosaic tiles and comfy chairs. The spa is a special pampering refuge for massages and other therapies and there is also Wi-Fi for those who need it. 

Set among the shade of Mopane trees, the inviting swimming pool overlooking the lake, provides a great location for a poolside cocktail or an afternoon dip in the heat of the day.

Matusadona boasts diverse wildlife sightings on exceptional game drives every day, as well as exhilarating walking and fishing safaris, all in the company of highly trained professional guides. Healthy populations of predators, including lion, leopard, hyena, and cheetah as well as elephant, buffalo, and antelope frequent the shoreline. Hippos and crocodiles are abundant in the cool waters. Birdlife is prolific, with 350 species having been identified in the area.

The history-making Matusadona National Park is named after the Matusadona hills on its skyline beside the huge expanse of the Kariba Dam waters. The Ume and Sanyati rivers flow through the park which is now a stronghold for the elephants and critically endangered black rhino. Kariba offers the perfect blend of water activities, game viewing and jaw dropping vistas. And we have all the best package deals on offer right here. 



Changa Safari Camp in Zimbabwe offers visitors a bit of everything – luxury accommodation, game drives into Matusadona National Park, boating trips and some of the best safari packages in Africa! 

From the superb bushveld of this magnificent country to keen exploration of Matusadona National Park and access to the huge Lake Kariba, we can ensure that your African holiday in Zimbabwe is packed with surprises when you book your holiday package for Changa Safari Camp on Lake Kariba.

Did you know that this huge water source was completed and filled between 1958 and 1963 and that it stretches a vast 220km? In some places, the dam is 97 meters deep, making Kariba the biggest dam constructed by man at the time, as huge as the country of Wales in the United Kingdom! And the cherry on top is that Changa Safari Camp is one of the most recent tourist attractions in Matusadona National Park, offering superb luxury accommodation and five-star service!

At Changa Safari Camp, guests are surprised by the competence and friendliness of the staff who are part of this Zimbabwean luxury accommodation within its own private concession where elephants and other regal creatures spend their days simply surviving. Here, you sit back after incredible game drives with a glass of champagne and allow the wilderness to enshroud you, your inclusive safari accommodation package making the most of the setting, the food, the hospitality and real African activities.

We can entice you with thoughts of venison dinners cooked to perfection, game drives at dawn as the sun peeps through the ancient trees and lunchtimes spent idling at the swimming pool while houseboats meander by and the dead trees in the lake form perches for fantastic Fish Eagles. Changa Safari Camp is both romantic and adventurous, a paradise setting in a partly man-made and partly wild environment where nothing matters except your comfort and satisfaction with everything on offer.

Matusadona is best known for its huge elephant populations, and it remains one of the last remaining sanctuaries for the endangered Black Rhino. Birdlife is prolific, with 350 species of birds having been identified in the area. Changa Safari Camp lends itself to total relaxation so kick back and relax, listening carefully for the characteristic call of the iconic fish eagle as you take endless photos of glorious sunsets. 

Chilled out meals around a large table in the dining room or under a canopy of trees on the vast wooden deck overlooking the lake bring all the visitors together to discuss this sensational region. Check out our special deals to Lake Kariba and Matusadona with extras thrown in such as a few days in Vic Falls or Botswana.
