Vundu Camp is situated in the heart of the Mana Pools National Park along the banks of the great Zambezi River. The camp itself is nestled amongst a grove of beautiful rivirine forest, including trees such as huge old zambezi figs, ebonys, raintrees, wild mangoes and tamarinds. Vundu Camp opened in 2009 and is run by Nick and Desiree Murray.
There is a beautiful pan behind the camp with a tree stand for sitting , relaxing and watching the game come down to drink . All the rooms and the main lodge have a view of the Zambezi River, being on average about fifteen meters from the bank .
The area is teaming with wildlife. There is a pair of resident leopards who leave their tracks scattered along the pathways almost every night, the lions come wandering past often and one can hear their distinctive calls most nights, elephants visit daily to feed on the thick vegetation in camp and to have a mud bath in the pan. Large herds of impala live around the camp and drink at the pan and this brings in the wild dogs, as they are their preferred prey. A troop of monkeys makes the canopy above camp their home, and they often get a family of honey badgers trying to raid the kitchen at night time, so everything has to be badger proof!!
Vundu Camp is suited to both those looking for that extra bit of adventure or to those who want a more relaxing time.
