Little Nyamoumba is a hidden oasis destination, with just three luxurious chalets, offering everything you could want for a small group or romantic getaway. Built against the breathtaking backdrop of the Kariba Gorge, the lodge has its own private beachfront and each room has expansive Zambezi River views. Whether relaxing or out on our customised boat birding, game viewing or fishing, the camp provides the perfect base.
Situated at the very end of the Kariba Gorge, 27km from the iconic Kariba dam wall and 40km from Chirundu Town, Little Nyamoumba is nestled up against the dramatic rocky backdrop of the gorge. With the Zambezi River right on the camp’s doorstep, most activities are water-based in our specially customised boats. Small and intimate, Little Nyamoumba is perfect for casually luxurious private getaways.
Bird and game viewing by boat and on the neighbouring islands are on offer, with boat trips right up into the Kariba Gorge itself. Birding is particularly good here with frequent siting of the rare Pel’s fishing owl, Black Eagles and Narina Trogons in season, with viewing by boat offering a unique edge to your birding trip. Life jackets are worn on all water-based activities.
Catch and release fishing of all species is another exciting water activity, with this stretch of river home to the highly sought-after Tiger Fish. A fierce fighter, this game fish offers excellent sport and toothy trophy shots when landed. Our specially equipped boats have USB charging points so you will never miss recording your catch or siting.
We will be offering game drives on the mainland and walking safaris by request shortly so please confirm these activities with us when booking. Our professional guides are as at home on the water as on the land, so every trip is a discovery, with our seasoned boat captains in the know of all the best spots on the river. Private booking of boats and vehicles can be arranged by prior request at an additional charge.
