CHANGA SAFARI CAMP MATUSADONA NATIONAL PARK, ZIMBABWE CHANGA SAFARI CAMP is located on the shores of Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe and provides the unique experience of combined Game & Fishing Safaris. Situated on a private concession in the famed Matusadona National Park, and with its own 4.5 Km of lake shore, you can realize the total raw African experience from tastefully furnished, fan-cooled, spacious deluxe East African-style tented suites, each with its own private deck and stunning views of the mysterious Matusadona Mountains across the inland sea of Lake Kariba.This rich wilderness area offers exceptional game drives as well as walking and fishing safaris, all in the company of highly trained professional guides. Matusadona is best known for huge elephant populations, as well as being one of the last remaining sanctuaries of the endangered Black Rhino. Birdlife is prolific, with 350 species of birds having been identified in the area.With breathtaking scenery and nestled beneath shady trees, the camp lends itself to total relaxation. Listen carefully for the strident call of the iconic fish eagle and enjoy the unequalled beauty of a Lake Kariba sunset.Meals are relaxed and laid back, set around a large table in the dining room or under a canopy of trees on the vast wooden deck overlooking the lake. Scrumptious food is freshly prepared in camp everyday by our Chef, always with an imaginative and friendly approach. We invite you to experience this remote wilderness with us and our pledge will be kept if your last thought of the day is - "Can it get any better than this!"

We spent 3 weeks in Zimbabwe and absolutely loved every minutes of it. Our last stop was the Changa safari camp and it was wonderful. Every body went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable. Donna, the camp manager, was always present when we had questions. The « tent » was very comfortable and it was lovely to sit on our porch and admire the hippos and the elephants drinking at the lake. The swimming pool was big and clean and the food excellent. Our game drives with Sean were fascinating.

What an amazing property! Our tented living space was spacious and beautiful with a lovely outdoor shower and bath. The food was amazing and the staff was top notch. Our walking safari tour with Daffy was magical and our fishing/boating adventures with Kenneth were so fun! We had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Angus and Pam. What great people with a great vision!

I had read very good reviews about Changa Camp on Trip Advisor. I included this camp in my itinerary because my grandson Hunter, with whom I was traveling, wanted to fish on Lake Kariba. Nothing really prepared me for exactly how excellent this camp is. The manager is superb and is involved with every aspect of the operation. The location is divine and the camp itself is lovely, not super luxury, but exceedingly comfortable. The food is delicious, one of the few places during a one month safari to very upmarket lodges where we were continually disappointed with the food. Since most of our time was spent fishing, David was our primary guide and he was superb. He is an asset to the organization; he is charming, knowledgeable, and very kind and considerate. I did a walking safari with another excellent guide (please forgive me that I cannot remember his name) who was also first class. Game viewing will be greatly enhanced bu the introduction of animals by African Parks which was to commence the week after we left. With that addition, this should be oil all traveler's lists who plan a safari in Zimbabwe. Kudos to all of you and thank you for making our stay so memorable. Joan and Hunter Kosove

Changa Safari Lodge is one of those rare gems that made me want to write a review. Location determines the best spot for any choice in land investment, and Changa couldn’t be better placed to have everything necessary for a true African Safari experience that is both wild and thrilling, and yet safe and comfortable in every way. With a determined management focus on wildlife conservation that partners with world leaders like African Parks, visitors will experience Africa at its finest. The word “adventure” springs to mind and you just don’t know what’s around the corner. Whether you are a wildlife enthusiast, fisherman, birder or simply want to sit back and relax within the Changa complex, you are not going to be disappointed. From the hospitality staff through to the rangers, you will feel taken care of every moment of every day and that’s due to a high level of management that has chosen only the best quality individuals for each position. One has to understand the challenges of operating an exquisite and remote lodge to fully appreciate the effort made by lodge owners to make a guest’s stay truly memorable. Go see for yourself. It’s the real deal. Mike and Shirley Donald
