Rhino Safari Camp

Rhino Safari Camp is situated on the shores of Lake Kariba, a massive man made lake formed by the damming of the mighty Zambezi River in the late 1950’s. It is also situated within the Matusadona National Park, a remote wilderness area which has been designated as an Intensive Protection Zone for a small but successful population of the endangered black rhino.

The remoteness of this protected area combined with the plentiful water supply provided by the lake combine to make the Matusadona home to a wide variety of wild animals. The big five: black rhino, elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo are all found here. Hippo and crocodile and a wide variety of water birds make use of the lake. Kudu, Warthog, Zebra, Bush buck, Impala, and numerous antelope species as well as over 350 documented bird species are also here. The call of the African Fish Eagle will never be forgotten, nor that of the Ground Hornbill. Vultures, bateleurs, storks, geese, ducks, plovers and other water birds abound.

Tonga Style Stilted Huts

Unique eco friendly huts on stilts set out along the shoreline. Built of wood and reeds with thatched roofs. Being above ground opens up the view, and allows air to circulate through the spacious living area. The huts are open fronted with reed mats that roll down if needed. The side walls do not reach the ceilings allowing movement of the air in the warmer months. The thatched roof extends to cocoon the interior. Each has en suite open air shower, with flush toilet and hand basin beneath the eaves. Situated at the back of each unit at a slightly lower level. The spacious huts have twin beds with jumbo sized walk in mosquito nets. A comfortable seating area at the front comprises a couch and coffee table, and a dressing table and stool. The wardrobe and towel rack are situated at the back of the room so you can enjoy the views of the lake and the wildlife without obstacles.
