Rhino Safari Camp

Lake Kariba, Matusadona

Browse listings

An old fashioned bush camp. Unpretentious, owner managed, situated on the shores of Lake Kariba, within the unspoilt wilderness of the Matusadona National Park. No fences - just pure nature.

Enjoy a highly personalised photographic safari experience, guided walks, game drives and evening cruises on the lake. Fishing, birding and superb relaxation, close to nature.

Accommodation is in thatched stilted platforms with en suite facilities, and solar lighting at night.  Freshly prepared homestyle meals, in the double-storey wooden dining/living/bar area.  A small, rustic, splash pool provides relief in the heat of summer. 
Close encounters with the Big Five, stargazing, dinner beneath the stars. Enjoy a memorable and magical safari with us. We look forward to welcoming you to this stunningly beautiful area.

The camp is accessible by scheduled air service into Kariba from Harare or Victoria Falls, followed by speedboat transfer from Marineland Harbour (one and a half hours, weather permitting). Also by air charter flights into Bumi Hills or Rokari airstrips, (with a short boat transfer across to the camp).

This jewel of a camp, one of Africa's best-kept secrets, is the place to be when you need to restore your soul and spirit and be at one with Nature. The rustic, yet charming, wood-under-thatch chalets are set along the shoreline and you reside amongst the wildlife and enjoy panoramic views of the lake from your open-to-the-air, elevated room. Service and guiding is excellent, with game viewing, fishing and walking on offer. Walking is my favourite! What sets this camp apart from many others is that it is owner-managed - and Jen is always on hand to take care of every little details of our safari.

This camp ticks all the boxes for an authentic experience of 'the bush', in Africa. So unspoilt and unhindered by man, yet it provides all one needs to experience a true closeness with nature evoking it's richness and vulnerability.

Some safari camps and lodges seek to insulate you from the bush, with aircon and raised walkways and the trappings of so-called - and usually very costly - "luxury". Others gently encourage you to blend in with your surroundings and focus on what, in my opinion, should be the real essentials: simple but comfortable accommodation, good food, and a top quality wilderness and wildlife experience that isn't ruled by the clock. Rhino Safari Camp ticks all my personal boxes, and moreover is located at the heart of some of Zimbabwe's finest scenery, looking over elephant-dotted grasslands to Lake Kariba on the one hand, and the backdrop of the Matusadona mountains on the other.
