ACCOMMODATIONNanzhila Plains Safari Camp is the most southerly lodge in the Kafue National Park. Unfenced and deep in the bush, it brings the visitor right into the heart of nature. Accommodating on 12 guests at a time, Nanzhila Plainsoffers a tranquil, intimate encounter with Zambia's finest wildlife.
Main LodgeThe spacious main lodge is a raised, grass-thatched structure (called an insaka) with a beautiful teak deck. Elevated above the Nangandwe pool, it comprises a lounge and dining area, bar and verandah. An adjoining communal open-air fireplace is a great gathering place in the evening, where stories are exchanged under the stars.
Enjoy game-viewing and bird-watching from the cool verandah, shaded by a huge jackalberry tree (also known as the African Ebony), which provides an unhindered view of the dambo(vlei or wetlands).
Thatched cottagesThe thatched cottages bring you into close proximity to nature - don't be surprised to hear buck crunching twigs underfoot, or the ripping sound of branches as elephants strip the trees close by.
The three well-appointed, unobtrusive chalets accommodate six guests (two to a chalet) and are situated along the tree line, giving guests an unobstructed view of the pool.
Here, peace and tranquility reign. To make that bush experience all the more authentic, chalets are lit with paraffin lamps and hot water comes from donkey boilers. The en suite facilities include a hot and cold shower, toilet and double basins.
The cottages are spacious and private with large, comfortable beds protected by mosquito nets.
