We spent a short 4 day honeymoon at Changa. It is a tented camp with only 4 tents and thus not many guests. They are far apart from each other to ensure privacy. The tents all have a few of the lake and include outside shower and bath as well as comfortable and clean beds.
They were pre-warned that this was a honeymoon and were prepared with everything that we would want. The boat to pick us up at Kariba was present on our arrival and we got a very warm welcome from all the staff. The service was generally excellent. All our needs were catered to from the candle light dinner on the beach on the day of our arrival, to the quality of the food.The quality of the guides is excellent, neither my husband nor I are easy to please here and were pleasantly surprised.
Our majour concern was housekeeping, the room was not as clean as it should have been, bins were not emptied once during the course of our stay.
I would really recommend this camp to others.
