Changa has been designed to blend in with the environment as much as possible and the natural materials, thatched roofs, wooden decks and walkways merge with the surrounding bush. The main lounge and library is comfortably furnished in an eclectic style, integrating leather, linen and cane to create a relaxed, homely vibe. The lounge is completely open to the gentle breeze, shaded by a thatch roof with sprawling views of the main deck, beach and lakeshore.

The main deck with its sweeping curved stairway leading onto a lower deck, fire pit and wide beach of glittery white sand, is the perfect spot to sit and relax whilst enjoying a refreshing drink. The swimming pool is a wonderfully shaded haven equipped with sun loungers and private seating areas, this is a place where you can revel in the stunning scenery overlooking the bay.

Meals are relaxed and laid back, set around a large table in the dining room or under a canopy of trees on the vast wooden deck overlooking the lake.

An incredible camp from which to explore the Matusadona National Park and Kariba area.
