Kavinga Camp is located very close to the famous Chitake spring, a natural spring set in the middle of a river bed. During the driest months of the year this spring becomes one of the only water sources in the area creating an absolutely incredible hotspot for wildlife. A real thrill to experience when on foot! The lodge itself also has a waterhole – with a hide, which too becomes a hotspot!
This exclusive Camp consists of five comfortable raised tents, built on the edge of the cliff, facing east, with a view of the rising sun above the magnificent Zambezi Valley floor.
The Camp has a central dining and lounge area with two decks, providing a fabulous vista across the dry riverbed and to the waterhole below. Cozy up on the sofa with a book and your binos or linger over a cool gin and tonic at the sun set plays with the colours of the valley floor. What more can you ask for?
There is a firepit to relax by at night, gazing at the stars and looking out for nocturnal visitors. Enjoy your delicious dinner with a glass of wine to the sounds of lions calling and hyena whooping.
The tents have been designed with an emphasis on privacy and is surrounded by insect repellent gauze, allowing the air to circulate, contributing to maximum coolness. Inside each tent are two comfortable beds in flexible arrangements, as well as an en-suite bathroom. In front of the tent is a private verandah directly over the edge of the cliff, giving a feeling of infinite space.
One of the best experiences at Kavinga Camp is the hide. Get right among the wildlife in this termite mound shaped hide. Creatively designed to keep you cool and give you an astonishing 180-degree view of the water hole from elephant-foot level. During the day see herds of game and beautiful and rare birds from the amazing vantage point. After the sun sets, you may watch the predator’s approach, and catch a glimpse of those elusive nocturnal animals such as porcupine, leopards, honey badgers, or even an aardvark. Very special indeed!
