  • African Bush Camps were excellent and looked after us very well indeed. The accommodation was amazing and so well thought out. Our guide was very knowledgeable and looked after us very well indeed. The children loved seeing all the animals and we were so lucky to see the wild dogs as well as a lion kill – very special. They did an amazing bush supper for us one night which was just so lovely – under the stars by the fire with lots of singing and dancing.

  • Nyamatusi Mahogany is like heaven on earth. The facilities are stunningly beautiful. The rooms are luxurious and the lodge is beautifully decorated. And the food is great! But what makes this place special are the people.

    Lori C via TripAdvisor

  • We so enjoyed being able to spend our time in camp, at meals and around the campfire with our guide, our hosts and the extended staff. It was a lovely opportunity to get to know them better and hear about their experiences. We were so touched on our last night when we were surprised by a dance party and celebration in honor of a couple of major events in our family (an anniversary and a recent engagement). The kindness and thoughtfulness of the entire staff of Nyamatusi was just remarkable.

  • Mana Pools is probably my favourite place in the world. Nyamatusi Mahogany really does this stunning place justice.

    We went as a family of 4 with kids aged 7 and 10. Both us and the kids were treated like family/royalty. Nyamatusi is split in 2 with Mahogany being child-friendly – way beyond friendly really.

Our Local Foundation projects

The Vukani Group Project

The Vukani Group Project is a community of women who are making beautiful, handcrafted necklaces, bracelets, and napkin rings out of recycled magazines. This project takes items that we typically throw away and repurposes them into something beautiful. Items are for sale at the ABC trading post in our camp.

Mana Ranger Anti-poaching Unit

Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park is one of Southern Africa’s most remote and idyllic wildlife destinations. It is an acclaimed UNESCO world heritage site. Being so remote and secluded on two countries’ borders makes it an attractive target for wildlife poaching.
