Lower Zambezi
Anabezi & Amanzi Camp

Anabezi and Amanzi are two luxurious tented sister lodges in the Lower Zambezi National Park, set just 3 km apart from each other on the banks of the Zambezi River.

Anabezi is made up of 12 spacious tents, while Amanzi is smaller and more rustic, consisting of just four traditional safari tents.

Both camps are perfectly placed for exploring the park with its large elephant numbers, and river safari activities such as canoeing and tiger fishing.

Facilities & Activities

There is a great range of activities on offer, with two per day included for guests. Choose from game drives (with a maximum of four guests per vehicle), a night drive and a walking safari into the Kulefu woodlands and surrounding areas. Accompanied by expert guides, you’ll follow animals including lions, buffalos, rhinos and herds of elephant, learning about their natural habitat along the way.

Active broods can try their hand at canoeing down the river, with a guide pointing out the wildlife and rare birds as you paddle past everything from crocodiles to hippo pods. For an even more leisurely water expedition, hop onto a boat trip and watch the surroundings drift by with a drink and snacks in your hand. Fishing, bird watching and day trips down the Mapata Gorge are also available.

Facilities include pools at both camps and WiFi at Anabezi.

Dining

The cuisine fuses European and African influences, with dishes designed by the camp’s head chef. Fresh continental breakfasts are served, followed by a buffet lunch and later an afternoon high tea of sweet treats and fruit. Dinner is a three-course meal, served with some of South Africa’s finest wines. Meals are taken on the deck, which offers spectacular views of the plains with its roaming animals as you eat.

Rooms

Rooms at Anabezi are as sumptuous as can be for a safari tent, with gauze sliding doors opening onto a private deck, indoor and outdoor bathrooms and private plunge pools where you can cool off while drinking in the marvellous views just beyond your deck.

At Amanzi, each of the four tents comes with spacious sitting areas, indoor bathrooms, a private deck overlooking the Ngwenya Channel and four-poster mosquito nets above teak beds.

Family

Children under the age of 8 years are not allowed in either camp unless they are part of a group booking (minimum of 8 people) and there are no babysitting services. However, for those looking for interconnecting rooms, Amanzi has a family unit – 2 of the tents back to back allowing for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom family tent, ideal for groups with young children.

Anabezi has 2 common areas, the Zambezi Deck and the Mushika Deck, which can be booked exclusively by large families or groups looking for private space.

Sustainability

At Anabezi and Amanzi, they believe that ethical and sustainable wildlife tourism and conservation go hand in hand. In tribute to the natural landscape from which they operate, they remain dedicated to supporting grassroots preservation efforts operating within the Lower Zambezi National Park, and across Zambia.

They are involved with Conservation Lower Zambezi, Zambezi Wildlife Trust which has funded a range of community projects such as tackling the issues of human-wildlife conflict, education and sustainable agriculture; Reduced Carbon Footprint and Conservation at Home.

They also launched Zambezi Harvest in 2023 – which is a community-based program that supports local farmers and promotes sustainable agriculture. It sources fresh produce from local farmers, provides training and resources, and partners with businesses to promote locally sourced produce.

Location

Surrounded by wilderness, the camps sit happily on the edge of the Zambezi River at the Lower end of the Lower Zambezi National Park. There are a number of different ways to reach them, but flying is the quickest and easiest option. From Lusaka or Livingstone, fly to Jeki Airstrip, a 40-minute drive from camp, or to Kulefu Airstrip, which is approximately 15 minutes from camp.
