Zambezi Expeditions
Mana Pools National Park

Zambezi Expeditions is an exclusive mobile camp situated in one of the most glorious settings in Zimbabwe’s iconic Mana Pools National Park. Overlooking the majestic Zambezi River, the camp is the brain child of African Bush Camps and offers an unparalleled wildlife experience in a beautiful African wilderness - getting away from it all takes on a whole new meaning!

Comfortable yet classic, the six tents (with a maximum of 12 people) are set up under winter thorn and huge ebony trees, providing welcome shade after a day of expeditions in Mana Pools National Park. The tents each have en-suite bathroom facilities, with hot bucket showers. The child policy is seven years and older, sharing with parents. The main tents have charging facilities so you can recharge your cameras for the next day’s sightings and adventure. Completely immersed within your natural surroundings, this is a nature experience like no other; fall asleep to the sound of the river, wake with the dawn chorus and see the most spectacular African sunrises and sunsets.

Here, the focus is entirely on the experience – living up entirely to Ampersand’s motto “luxury is in the experience”. With unique access to the Zambezi River guests can explore Mana Pools by canoeing safaris, fishing, walking safaris and tracking game by foot along the river banks, game drive and bird watching with some of the best guides in the business. The absolute highlight of Zambezi Expeditions however is a game drive in an open top 4x4 across the flood plains into the heart of Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you’ll be able to see magnificent wildlife indigenous to the area and explore hidden spots for the best game viewing.

Zambezi Expeditions are closed from December to March.

Client Testimonials

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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, 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
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
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
