Lovely accommodations. Excellent wildlife viewing. Guides, staff, management were all friendly and very knowledgeable. All that and delicious meals too! Although many people go to Lake Kariba for the fishing which I can't comment on, we had some of the best wildlife viewing in my experience and this was my 4th trip to Africa.

Probably just further confirmation of the other reviews but we had the best time ever. There were seven of us and we were extremely well looked after. Bruce and Sarah are excellent hosts and the rest of the staff faultless. Genuinely friendly and with the clear intention to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms were spacious (we had...

We spent Easter Holidays at Changa with our two kids, 3 and 6. As most resorts in Zim are either too snobby or too inflexible to cater for kids we didn't know what to expect. However, the Changa team were so accommodating and nice. Kids could eat dinner when it suited us - and the food was always home made,...

I cannot recommend this place enough. Kariba is maybe my favourite place in Zimbabwe, and Changa celebrates everything about their gorgeous location. From an outdoor bath and shower, to dinner under the stars every night, and with huge (netted!) windows in the tents, you are always surrounded by nature. The tents themselves were enormous with plenty of storage space, VERY...

We flew in from Vic Falls and had a very comfortable stay. One highlight was seeing the resident Bush Baby jumping about in the trees right next to the lounge area. I love the way the lodge is nestled in the trees and felt so private whether you were sitting by the pool or on the veranda at your lodge....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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!" ... more   less
