Nyamatusi Camp
Mana Pools National Park

Nyamatusi Camp is the latest addition to the Africa Bush Camps collection of safari lodges newly opened in Spring 2019. This chic lodge sits on the river banks of one of the oldest rivers in the world, the mighty Zambezi River, and is located in is some of the most untouched, pristine wilderness areas in Africa.

The tale of the ancient custodians who respected the river as the source of life is clearly visible in the lodge design, with subtle elements of water throughout the design. In keeping with their other wilderness camps, the elegant infusion of water honours the immense beauty of the mighty Zambezi River. Similar to the other Africa Bush Camps the Nyamatusi Camp is small and intimate, comprising of six luxury tented suites with a maximum occupancy of 12 people (the child policy is 7 years and older, sharing with parents). The suites are built on wooden platforms with a unique private splash pool to cool down in the midday heat. A canvas covered patio allows for lazy afternoons watching the game saunter past. The main areas of the camp are styled in a more traditional fashion with wooden platforms and walk ways, and relaxed furnishings.

The focal point of the lodge is the Zambezi; an expansive bank that ebbs and flows with the tides of the river is a busy meeting spot for herds of elephant, general game and excellent bird watching. Lead by the camps experienced guides, guests are able to enjoy a range of activities including game drives, walking safaris, bird watching, canoeing and fishing on a catch and release basis. The guides know the best spots for game viewing and are able to give insightful knowledge of the wildlife and birdlife, as well as the topography and flora – African Bush Camps guides are often cited to be the best in the business! Walking safaris are a real highlight, as you explore all the bush has to offer, and the Lower Zambezi is the perfect setting for an adventurous canoeing safari as you take in the pristine scenery of Mana Pools National Park.

The camp combines well with Zambezi Expeditions for an extended walking safari. Note that Nyamatusi Camp is closed December, January, February and March

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
