I stayed here a while ago but feel confident to write the review now because it was truly a very special place. I cannot wait to go back. It is wild, comfortable and everything I want from a bush camp.I can't speak highly enough of this magical spot and its wonderful host, Jenny. Steve was the guide when we were there and he went out of his way to ensure our stay was the best ever. We saw lion, a magical rhino greeting, hippo, elephant and so much more. We caught tiger fish, bream and laughed til we cried. We felt relaxed, priviliged and safe in the wild African bush. MAGICAL, MAGICAL,MAGICAL!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An luxury rustic bush camp, situated within the Matusadona National Park on the shorelines of Lake Kariba. Guests are accommodated in seven twin bedded stilted wood and thatch chalets, each with its own en suite open air shower and flush toilet. Each chalet is on the edge of the jesse bush, facing the lake so they benefit from the cooling breeze from the water. It is not uncommon to have the wildlife walking in front and around the rooms, which allows for "close and personal" encounters with the game. Game viewing activities include drives, walks and tracking, and sunset cruises all in the company of a professional guide. For those guests who like to drop a line in the water, we also offer fishing for bream and the world renowned tiger fish, and Elephant Point is regarded as an excellent area to fish in. The Matusadona National Park is home to the Big Five, being lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and the endangered black rhino as well as a host of smaller plains game and over 350 species of birds recorded in the area, making it a birders paradise. Rhino Safari Camp can be accessed by speed boat transfer from Kariba or from the nearby Kiplings/Rhokari and Bumi Hills airstrips. Meals are homestyle and freshly prepared at camp and meal times revolve around the game viewing needs of our guests. The guides and camp manager/owner host guests and offer them a relaxed homely environment in which to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the wilderness of the Matusadona National Park. We look forward to your visit....NO FENCES - PURE NATURE ... more less
