Nestled amongst groves of stunning riverine forest on the bank of the famous Zambezi River, Vundu Camp is a small camp known for the excellent reputation of its expert owners and their attention to details and guest’s needs.
The camp is comprised of eight spacious chalet-style tents. Inside the tents, large wooden beams support a high thatched roof with canvas walls and shade-mesh windows. Each chalet features comfortable twin beds on polished concrete floors and cooled by freestanding fans. The family chalet comes with two bedrooms, one twin and one double, which are both en-suite and are separated by a lounge area with comfortable wicker chairs, low tables, and shelves. Guests can enjoy both outdoor and indoor showers with hot and cold running water, hand basin, and flush toilets. Best of all, each chalet has its own private veranda open to the Zambezi River just ten meters away with canvas chairs for relaxing and watching impala, warthog, and elephants wander by on their way to the river for a drink.
The camp sits on the banks of the Zambezi River in the heart of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, shaded by a grove of ebony and tamarind trees. Mana Pools is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its lions, leopards, and hyenas. It is also part of the Zambezi Valley, a western extension of the Great Rift Valley. Vundu Camp is owned and run by an extremely knowledgeable Zimbabwean, Nick Murray and his wife, Des. Nick has a degree in zoology and wildlife management and started off as a guide in Matusadona National Park.
