A traditional old style safari camp that is not going to win any awards for style. However, what it lacks in safari chic is more than made up for in warmth and character. Owned by professional safari guide Nick Murray, who is supported by a loyal, skilled and dedicated team, Vundu, and its sister camp a few Kilometers away, Little Vundu, are one of a kind type camps. Here the focus is fully on introducing guests to the real Mana Pools where they may experience never to be forgotten close up interactions whilst tracking wild dog and lion on foot. We wouldn't necessarily recommend either of the Vundu Camps or indeed the similarly awesome Goliath Camp for first time safari goers due to the very raw nature of the wilderness experience here. However if you have good sense of adventure and are worldly well travelled in rustic countries shall we say then perhaps it'll be right up your street. For safari purists or repeat Africa clients though, this is gold!
Vundu is a typical example of why one shouldn't judge a book by its cover. One has to look beyond its dated décor and vehicles, which may have seen better days, and focus on Nick, his team, the game and the experience. No nonsense and down to earth Nick is passionate about Mana Pools and is hugely pro-active when it comes to supporting anti-poaching initiatives in the Zambezi Valley.
As well as Little Vundu, Nick and his team operate a 2 night canoe trail down the Zambezi known as Ruwesi Canoe Trail and an extremely wild, walking only safari camp deep in the heart of the park Chitake Springs Mobile Camp
