Lapped by the waters of Lake Kariba, shaded by Mopane woodland and hidden from the world, Changa Safari Camp is an oasis of tranquility and an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Changa has been designed to blend in with the environment using natural materials. The camp furniture has been built using Zimbabwe’s finest teak and the bar has been fashioned around the hull of an old boat.
Features & Amenities
We have 6 standard tents which accommodate 2 people. The camp also has two sets of interconnecting family tents, which allow children to move freely between their tent and their parents’ in complete safety and privacy.
Each one of the eight luxury tents has been created to reflect the environment, providing you with an authentic bush experience. The unique landscape surrounding Changa, provides each tent with its own breathtaking view of the unspoilt environment. Discreetly positioned in the front facing trees, are small sprinklers that may be turned on, inviting a flurry of feathers to your doorstep where you can watch the colorful birdlife darting in and out the spray.
All tents are a classic safari olive canvas and have been mosquito proofed with specialized netting, allowing you to comfortably fall asleep with a gentle breeze and the distant call of the wild.
Each tent has been individually and tastefully decorated with an East African influence and come with:
- An open netted front with views from both the bed and bathroom
- Private deck with a seating area and a hammock under the trees
- Bathroom vanity with double basins, separate toilet and shower and luxury guest amenities
- Outdoor bathtub and shower, with candles and decorative tiles
- Dressing table, with locally made mirrors and ample cupboard space
- Universal plug points
- Chilled water in a flask with glasses
- Lockable safety deposit bag for all your valuables
- Hairdryers on request at check in
“Spent three nights at this wonderfully well-appointed “tent chalet”, very private camp. Management, guides and all other staff were exceptionally friendly and professional.
Food was superb; really don’t know how they manage given the resupply logistics!
The “tents” are thoughtfully appointed with great attention to detail and many excellent features. The “public/communal” areas are great with a variety of “spots” and “venues”.
Stunning location and views. While being aware of its existence we had not previously visited Changa – loved it and will certainly return.”
TripAdvisor Review, September 2017
Changa Safari Camp’s cuisine will certainly be a highlight of your stay. Using only fresh ingredients, the taste and presentation of each dish, will leave you looking forward to the next meal. Breakfast and lunch are both served al fresco on the main elevated deck either under the shaded thatched open air dining room or under the Zig-zag terminalia tree overlooking the private beach and shoreline. We serve an afternoon tea with a selection of teas, local coffee and a sweet treat. A candle-lit dinner will be served with the beat of the drum at 7.30pm at a different location each night of your stay.
Should you have any dietary requirements please do let us know at the time of your booking and we would be happy to accommodate these.
The open-air lounge area is comfortably furnished with inviting leather chairs and sofas, shaded by a thatch roof with bursts of colour from the individually designed mosaic tiles. It is a lovely area where you can relax on your own, taking in the beautiful surroundings, or to socialize with others and share stories about your day. Wi-Fi is available in this area along with a central charging station.
Edewell and Marksen warmly invite you to relax and enjoy a refreshing drink at any time in the bar which is well stocked with a wide range of soft drinks, beers, wines, spirits and a wine list including a selection of South African wines.
