Kafue National Park camps - Nanzhila Plains Camp
Nanzhila Plains Camp
Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp is a new development located on the site of the old Nanzhila Rest Camp which was built in the late 1950's set in an area of miombo woodland in the remote area of the southern part of the Kafue Park. The chalets are tastefully decorated and homely, made out of teak and unusually, totally enclosed with windows.
There are no other camps or lodges in the southern part of the Kafue and so the sense of isolation is palbable and definitely a large part of the attraction of being here. Added to this is the chance of seeing a handful of birds and beasts not easily seen elswhere in the Park, or indeed Zambia (eg Black-cheeked Lovebird and Spring Hare).
The enterprise is an udertaking of the Smith family and it is fascinating to hear from them the challenges of running such a remore operation. Nanzhila is ideally suited as a break on a mega-trans-Kafue trip from Livingstone in the south to Busanga Plains in the North but if you do make it here be sure not to rush away before getting a feel for the area as it is very different from the rest of the Park.
