Lake Itezhi-tezhi, Kafue National Park

Explore the shorelines of Lake Itezhi-tezhi

Lake Camp has 3 uniquely design tented chalets looking over the Musa River and Lake Itezhi-tezhi shoreline. The focus of Lake Camp is exploring the Southern Kafue wildlife that is found around Lake Itezhi-tezhi. Here, the mega herbivores like elephant, buffalo and hippo are more common than down on the Plains and so the incredible diversity and variety that Nanzhila is known for delivering simply gets broader with the addition of Lake Camp. In addition to the variety of species, the open floodplains and shorelines around the edges of Lake Itezhi-tezhi make for a stunning wildlife experience.

“Lake camp is an excellent addition to their offering. So much game and felt so wild there! Our guide was excellent, we really appreciated how much he loves the bush and wanted to share it with us.”
– Mark Bennet, August 2021

3 reasons you should visit Nanzhila Lake Camp

Three unique elements which you will love about Lake Camp:

Don’t be surprised to hear buck crunching twigs underfoot, or the ripping sound of branches as elephants strip the trees close by.


The tented chalets are all situated along the tree line, giving guests an unobstructed view of the floodplain and shoreline ahead which has a constant flow of wildlife.


 Comfortable beds with mosquito nets are complimented by a large en-suite bathroom and vanity area and expansive covered verandah for midday game viewing.

“This gem of a lodge is beautifully designed and overlooks a waterhole that is alive with wildlife throughout the day. Food is miraculous, particular note to  our guides for arranging a full blown lion hunt with cubs on our first outing. This followed by six cheetahs.  We will return!”
– Marc L, August 2019
