Camp Zambezi is a luxury static camp set up on the bank of the mighty Zambezi River.

Games drives are in open 4x4 Toyota Land Cruisers. These drives may take you away from the river, to investigate the different inland habitats and the diverse occupants that make up the ecology of the area. Walking to explore and learn about the area, with your Professional Guide it is the best way to experience the incredible diversity of animals, insects and flora at Mana Pools.

Canoeing is a wonderful way to take in the tranquillity of the bush, gliding past herds of animals often unaware or uncaring of our presence. Canoeing is done in 5.5m (18ft) Canadian style canoes, fitted with comfortable seats and cushions.
Day One:
 
Fly by air-charter into Mana Pools National Park, where you will be met by your guide with ice cold drinks. you will then embark on a half hour drive through jesse bush and mopane scrub to Camp Zambezi arriving in time for lunch. you may by then, already have met a few of your new neighbors - elephant, kudu, zebra, impala and many birds!
 
A mobile tented camp will have been set up by the camp staff - walk-in mosquito-proffed tents with en-suite chemical toilet, external long drop toilets, hot showers and a dining area next to the fire where iced drinks sumptuous bush-prepared meals will be served. Our chef will have prepared a delicious lunch to give you strength for the first afternoon's walk - a familiarisation walk to see the lay of the land. Then back to camp for sundowners, a hot (or cold if you prefer) shower, and a fine dinner.
 
Although it is tempting to stay awake to listen to the neighbors going about their nightly activities, the beds are very comfortable and warm so it may be difficult to stay awake!!
 
Day Two:
 
To make the most of your day we suggest and early morning wake up, the hand basins outside each tent are filled with hot water before first light to allow you to shave or freshen up. Go straight out to check for spoor and animal activity around camp. Enjoy a beautiful sunrise and, on your return to camp, a light breakfast will be served with tea and freshly brewed coffee.
 
After breakfast, set off on your morning's activity, you may take to the river for the day (or morning), go by vehicle or on foot to explore the National Park. Whether you opt for land or water activities, half or full day, you can be assured of incredible experiences. The Guide will carry a weapon, a first aid kit, a packed lunch and extra water. Clients may carry extra personal water and personal items for the day.
 
Finally, back to camp for the night where a wonderful meal, hot shower, cold drinks and friendly staff are waiting.
 
Day Three:
 
Another day along the lines of day two - the choices are yours to make the most of this amazing spot. This third night will again be spend at Camp Zambezi - with all of the trimmings.
 
Day Four:
 
Depending upon the guests time of departure, or if the guests are moving onto a canoe trail or alternative camp, they may either take another early walk before breakfast or have a bit of a sleep in!
