Nestled at the foothills of the Zambezi Escarpment, Mana Pools, lies Kavinga Safari Camp. With the Zambezi river flowing almost 50km away, the terrain is different to that of the Mana Pools floodplain. Views from the camp overlook an open floodplain which is riddled with elephant paths – Gwashas as they are known by the locals. With the rains being a distant memory, and the temperatures increasing daily, water is the big attraction – not so much for us, but for the wildlife. The elephants return, following the same paths, trampling the grass to form a soft carpet which seems to silence their footsteps as they make their way towards the water. The camp is built on a high bank overlooking a water-hole, where guinea fowls flock every morning without fail, and animals of all shapes and sizes gather to quench their thirst. Spend an afternoon in the hide watching the elephant wallow ~ a wild perspective!
