Location & Directions
Lower Zambezi, Zambia
Amanzi is located on the eastern side of the Lower Zambezi National Park, bounded by the Zambezi Escarpment to the North and the mighty Zambezi River to the South. It's perfectly placed to explore the parks wildlife and also to take a trip through the Mpata Gorge.
When to go
The Lower Zambezi has a moderate to sub-tropical climate with three distinct seasons: from November to March is the Emerald, or the rainy season, April to July is Zambia's winter, when the weather is cool and dry, and August to October is summer, when the weather is hot and dry. In terms of game viewing, the drier months, meaning a higher concentration of game at the permanent water sources, are a superb time to visit. Alternatively come for some superb birdwatching at the end of the rains.
