Overview

Camp Zambezi is a static camp (a mobile camp that does not move) offering rustic luxury set up on the bank of the mighty Zambezi River. Guests can experience the full range of safari activities including game drives, canoeing and walking. With no set itinerary, each trip can be customised to the expectations of each individual group. The camp is perfect for those wishing to relax before starting of finishing another Natureways Safari.

Games drives are in open 4×4 Toyota Land Cruisers. These drives may take you away from the river, to investigate the different inland habitats and the diverse occupants that make up the ecology of the area. Walking to explore and learn about the area, with your Professional Guide it is the best way to experience the incredible diversity of animals, insects and flora at Mana Pools. The guide carries a weapon at all times. Mana Pools can provide some amazing experiences if guests are looking for close encounters with game. Mana is famous for its bull elephants, and if we are lucky enough to encounter one of these gentle giants on foot, it is an experience never to forget!

Canoeing is a wonderful way to take in the tranquillity of the bush, gliding past herds of animals often unaware or uncaring of our presence. Canoeing is done in 5.5m (18ft) Canadian style canoes, fitted with comfortable seats and cushions.

We are only too happy to cater for guests with any particular special interests, such as birding, photography, botany etc. Please advise us of any special interests prior to arrival. Ideally, each guest should have his or her own set of binoculars to maximize the safari experience.

Fishing is also a popular activity from Camp Zambezi particularly towards the end of the dry season – Sept/Oct -when the tiger fish are biting. Camp Zambezi is the perfect launch point each day for the fishing enthusiasts. You can canoe out from the camp each day and explore some of the islands and channels and spend the whole day fishing if you like, without the pressure of having to get to the next canoe camp down the river, as per a canoe trail.

Itinerary

Itinerary
Day 1
Fly by air-charter into Mana Pools National Park where you will be met by your guide with ice cold drinks. You will then embark on a half hour drive through Jesse bush and mopane scrub to Camp Zambezi arriving in time for lunch. You may, by then, already have met a few of your new neighbours - elephant, kudu, zebra, impala and many birds!
A mobile tented camp will have been set up by the camp staff - walk-in mosquito-proofed tents with an en-suite chemical toilet, external long-drop toilets, hot showers and a dining area next to the fire where iced drinks and sumptuous bush-prepared meals will be served. Our chef will have prepared a delicious lunch to give you strength for the first afternoon’s walk - a familiarisation walk to see the lay of the land. Then back to camp for sundowners, a hot (or cold if you prefer) shower, and a fine dinner.
Although tempting to stay awake to listen to the neighbours going about their nightly activities, but the beds are very comfortable and warm so it may be difficult to stay awake!
Itinerary
Day 2
To make the most of your day we suggest an early morning wake up, the hand basins outside each tent are filled with hot water before first light to allow you to shave or freshen up. Go straight out to check for spoor and animal activity around camp. Enjoy a beautiful sunrise and, on your return to camp, a light breakfast will be served with tea and freshly brewed coffee.
After breakfast, set off on your morning’s activity, you may take to the river for the day (or morning), go by vehicle or on foot to explore the National Park. Whether you opt for land or water activities, half or full day, you can be assured of incredible
experiences. The guide will carry a weapon, a first aid kit, a packed lunch and extra water. Clients may carry extra personal water and personal items for the day.
Finally, back to camp for the night where a wonderful meal, hot shower, cold drinks and friendly staff are waiting.
Itinerary
Day 3
Another day along the lines of day two - the choices are yours to make the most of this amazing spot. This third night will again be spent at Camp Zambezi - with all the trimmings.
Itinerary
Day 4
Depending upon the guests time of departure, or if guests are moving on to a canoe trail or alternative camp, they may either take another early walk before breakfast or have a bit of a sleep in! After that, there will be a short game drive to
the airstrip or Nyamepi, Mana Main Camp, where we bid you farewell!
As you depart with your memories, we know that this experience will have enriched your life and touched your soul!
