We are visiting here in September. We are keen photographers and have been asked by our travel agent if we would like to book a private jeep. The budget for the holiday has already been exceeded so we are concerned at paying for something we don't need. We love to spend time with an animal and not just tick it off and we are concerned that others may not want that plus sometimes if others don't take photos they can get irritated by the shutter sounds. I would really welcome some feedback as to what people think . Are the jeeps crowded and are people generally like-minded and patient so we could all get along. Also, from what I've read this is a safar by armchair camp and perhaps long trips aren't needed in the jeep.
Many thanks .

Thank you very much for your query regarding Kanga Camp and the private vehicle. We are delighted that we will have the opportunity to host you in September and share with you some authentic experiences and life long memories of the magical Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe. September is a fantastic time of year to visit Kanga Camp due to the fact that the camp is delicately built around the Kanga Pan, which is the only known water source in the area year round for a 10km radius. That means that during the dryer months from September to November, the waterhole in front of camp becomes a hub of activity for wildlife and there are increased opportunities for up close and personal encounters with a variety of species including your predators, right from the comfort of the Main Lounge Area. This is why we have coined the term "the Armchair Safari" experience at Kanga Camp. Your Travel Agent has asked you the question of whether you require a private vehicle to ensure that all your personal requirements and wishes are taken care of and that you were given all options from the outset. Whilst a private vehicle can enhance your experience and allows for more flexibility to be able to have control over the length of time spent at sightings or indeed the length of time out on an activity, it is not a necessity and we believe you will still have some incredible experiences without the private vehicle if it is not within your budget. Kanga Camp sleeps 12 people in total (6 tents) and we allocate no more than 6 guests to one vehicle. Whilst we have no control over the type of people you may have on your vehicle, in our experience, most people on safari at Kanga Camp are like-minded travellers, eager to learn more about the animals, surrounding vegetation and the area as a whole, as opposed to randomly driving around ticking off the species. Our guides are passionate individuals who are eager to share with you their knowledge and love of Africa, and as such there is never a dull moment whether in camp or on a game drive as there is always something new to discover or learn. If you wanted to include a full day trip down to the river during your time with us at Kanga, then it may be worthwhile spending the extra amount for a private vehicle for one of the days that you are in camp, however during this time of year, there is often a lot of action happening at the Pan in front of camp and previous guests have preferred to relax in camp and watch everything unfold in front of them than head out on game drives. As with anything on safari in Africa, it is luck of the draw as to what happens each day in the bush and one can never guarantee what wildlife or action will happen from day to day. I am confident however that with or without the private vehicle you will have an exceptional experience with us at Kanga Camp that will leave you with some fantastic stories to pass on to friends and family afterwards.
Please feel free to contact us or your Travel Agent should you have any further queries. We look forward to welcoming you to Kanga Camp and Zimbabwe in September.
