“The setting on the edge of a dambo is breathtaking. Chalets are very well appointed and perfectly comfortable. Food is simple but delicious and most importantly, the game drives are fantastic with plenty of wildlife!” - Ximunbtz, Paris, TripAdvisor

Our park gate is only 3 hours from Livingstone

Alternatively, we can fly you into the park with a charter flight from Livingstone or Lusaka. It is a 1.5 - 2hr game drive into camp from either the Ngoma airstrip (for charters) or the Dundumwezi gate (past the Black-cheeked Lovebirds).
