Description

Located on one of the most remote stretches of the Lower Zambezi, Amanzi Camp, offers an intimate safari experience with only four tents. Here you can enjoy a diverse stay with excellent game viewing and a range of safari activities on offer.

The tents and central guest area all enjoy uninterrupted views over the Ngwenya channel with a mosaic of islands in front which often play host to herds of elephants and pods of hippos. The camp has a central swimming pool with loungers on a raised teak deck which looks out over the river, making it a fabulous spot for a lazy afternoon of game viewing.

A sister camp to the larger Anabezi Camp, Amanzi Camp is the perfect choice for those looking for a relaxed safari experience in rustic luxury surroundings. There is a diverse menu of safari activities on offer with canoe safaris, walking safaris, boat cruises and fishing on offer in addition to traditional day and night game drives.

Accommodation

Accommodation is in four spacious tents which are each situated on elevated teak decks which are connected by wooden boardwalks. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, 24 hour power, private deck looking out over the channel with swing seats, and a spacious sitting area. Two of the tents are interleading which makes them ideal for families with younger children.

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.
