The Camp

Guest accommodation

All accommodations have an attached, fully equipped bathroom, mosquito nets and (mostly) double beds. Tents and chalets were set up along the edge of the forest and overlook the dambo near the camp, where animals often gather to drink. The camp welcomes children of all ages on request. In any case, they must share the tent with their parents.


Central facilities

The thatched main building, set up between two trees, lies on a platform and overlooks the landscape unfolding in front of it. There is a lounge area, a bar and two large dining tables for communal meals. In front is the swimming pool, on the side a fireplace on a stone platform.


Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp offers its guests both game drives and bush walks to experience the biodiversity of Kafue National Park up close. After sunset, game drives are also accomplished, in order to be able to spy a few nocturnal animals. Experienced guides are always at the guests' side to introduce them to the secrets of the local flora and fauna. If you want to learn more about local culture and life, you can also take a trip to the nearby village of Shezongo to gain an insight into the everyday life of the villagers.



Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp shines through a unique secluded location. It is the most southern accommodation in Kafue National Park, situated in the middle of pure wilderness. An incomparable safari experience is guaranteed here! The bush land in front of the camp is also very impressive. It catches a lot of water in the rainy season which remains in the dry season as ponds and pools, so-called dambos. The dambo near the camp is an attraction for numerous wild animals that come here to drink. Grandiose Wildlifesichtungen can often take place directly from the veranda of the tent. Last but not least, the rich biodiversity of the region, which can be admired on the bush excursions offered, makes the Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp a very special place.


The Kafue National Park impresses with its immense biodiversity. On the daily game drives and walking safaris offered by Nanzhila, numerous representatives of the African animal world can be observed with a little luck: Lions, elephants, buffalos and leopards are at home here, as are cheetahs, hippos, waterbucks and zebras. Maybe you're even allowed to spot some wild dogs. Not least for bird lovers, the region is an extremely attractive destination.****
