When To Visit Mana Pools:

At Yellow Zebra, we think Vundu Camp is pretty special. With its fabulous location and first-rate guiding, it is ideal for travellers who want to really get to know the Zambezi and Mana Pools!

OVERVIEW:
The camp is owned and operated by Nick Murray, a Pro-Zim guide with almost thirty years’ experience of guiding in the country. Since 1997, Nick has been based in Mana Pools.

ACCESS & LOCATION:
Vundu Camp is situated among groves of riverine forest on the banks of the Zambezi River, in a private concession within Mana Pools National Park.

ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Vundu Camp is a very spacious camp. The main building is elevated above ground level to comprise a large deck with superb views across the river. On this deck, there is a large lounge area with plenty of comfortable seating and a small selection of reading material. There is also a dining area with a long table for communal meals, a bar, and a tea-and-coffee station that is available all day. Just outside the main building, beneath an ancient ebony tree, there is sandy terrain that provides a good spot for the camp’s fire, surrounded by chairs. And behind camp, there is a viewing platform positioned close to a waterhole – a great place to observe local wildlife!

Sandy paths through riverine forest connect the communal areas to the eight tented chalets, each with a wooden frame, concrete floor, canvas walls and a thatched roof. The family unit has a double bed and twin beds, the honeymoon suite a double bed, and the remainder either twin beds or a double bed. All have lounge furniture, rugs, a fan, and open-air en-suite facilities consisting of flush toilet, two washbasins and shower. The patterned clay washbasins are made by Nick Murray’s wife Desiree and add a lovely homely touch to the accommodation.

ACTIVITIES:
Activities from Vundu benefit immensely from Nick’s expertise and that of the guides he picks himself, Zim-Pro freelancers based in the region. Each day begins with a morning walk and/or game drive, following tracks that have appeared overnight or viewing the impressive game that inhabits Mana Pools. Lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, African wild dog, eland, kudu, waterbuck… there is a lot to see here! Game drives take place during the afternoon too. This is also the time to take a canoe trip down the Lower Zambezi, with an experienced guide on hand to negotiate the hippo and crocodile! Canoe trails lasting two to three nights are available for enthusiasts – just contact us for details.
