Nottingham Estate

Nottingham Fishing Camp is located on Nottingham Estate – a functioning citrus plantation owned by the Knott family. The estate is located just over the Limpopo River in Zimbabwe, a short drive from Beitbridge but deep into the magnificent bush.
Throw in a line, keep an eye out for wildlife, and relax surrounded by the splendor of Africa’s wilderness.

Nottingham is located in the heart of the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Park, which spans South Africa’s World Heritage Mapungubwe National Park, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

The area is renowned as the cultural centre of Southern Africa, where the African Renaissance began and the land and its people have centuries of history. Nottingham itself has many amazing ancient rock art sites, but is also the home to a huge diversity of animals and birds – elephants and hippos to buck and leopard, fish eagles and herons to kingfishers.

At Nottingham Fishing Camp it’s all about enjoying the great outdoors under African skies, watching the stunning sunsets and catching some whopping fish.The camp itself is perfectly situated overlooking the large dam which is stocked with bass, bream and barbel. There are plans to expand the camp to include mountain bike trails and walking tours to the rock art sites and some of the other incredible features on the property.
