Lion, leopard, hyena and cheetah occur in good numbers and a few, very endangered black rhino are present.Birdlife is prolific with in excess of 350 species having been identified in the Park. Of particular interest are the many different species of water fowl seen on the shoreline or perched on one of the petrified and partially submerged trees that have become an iconic marker on the Lake Kariba vista. Here on the shores of Lake Kariba, with the Matusadona mountains in view, the proximity to nature and true wilderness is unparalleled… four and a half kilometers of shoreline on a private concession ensure that this luxurious tented camp becomes a relaxing remote retreat. Remote and off the beaten track, the game drives and safaris in this region are simply spectacular. Changa Safari Camp is a bright and beautiful spot on life’s demanding horizon, a place of romance and luxury that promises peace and seclusion in an unusual blend of landscapes.
