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.
