The BBC camp, named after the installation in this space of the teams of the famous chain during one of their video shootings, corresponds perfectly to the experience that we had come to seek in self-drive to Mana Pools. For more details on the National Park, see our review of Mana Pools.
A few kilometers from the reception of the national park, the camp is located at the edge of the Zambezi, with a breathtaking view on the escarpment.
Like all the exclusive camps located in Mana Pools, the space is privatized day and night, not allowing any car to circulate to the campsite. Several camping spots are offered to the new owner of the place, who can choose his favorite location on the hundred meters that the camp offers along the river.
We settled in the shade of tall trees, with a clear view of the river. Amazing!
Just at the entrance of the camp, the road dominates the river, for a splendid overhang. The sunrise is particularly striking. One regrets, without any importance, the opposite with an other camp.
The equipment of the camp is restricted: besides a small braai site provided for this purpose, the ground is used to make its fire. No water, no toilets. Nyamepi is not far away, we will remember.
