An Exclusive Mobile Camp overlooking the majestic Zambezi River

Zambezi Expeditions showcases one of the most magnificent settings in Zimbabwe’s iconic Mana Pools National Park. Comfortable yet classic, the camp offers the kind of intimacy with nature that can only be achieved by immersing yourself in the heart of the wild. Fall asleep to the sound of the flowing river and chuckles of hippo and wake-up with the dawn chorus to a spectacular African sunrise. At Zambezi Expeditions you will connect with nature in a deep and meaningful way.


Set under the shade of winter thorn and ebony trees, each tent has en suite bathroom facilities with hot bucket showers and the main area has charging facilities for your all-important cameras. With unique access to the Zambezi River, your days will be filled with adventurous canoeing safaris, tracking game along the shorelines by foot, and fishing for the iconic tiger fish. An absolute must, however, is a game drive in an open 4 x 4 along the flood plains and into the heart of the Mana Pools UNESCO World Heritage Site.


  • Zambezi Expeditions left my wife crying when we left because of the personal touch the staff gives everyday. This camp is amazing on every level. Cloud was an amazing guide that took us canoeing on the Zambezi and Henry took us walking up to lions, hippos, elephants, and african wild dogs. Sabastian, Jorge, and Michelle were so nice and went way above and beyond for our stay, but every staff member did.

  • My husband I stayed 3 nights with friends and fellow photographers. The staff were absolutely outstanding, they treated us like VIPs. You were looked after and made feel very safe. You were escorted to you tent each night with a guide. The food and accommodation were 5 star. We can’t wait to stay again.

  • We enjoyed a fabulous end to our honeymoon. The most authentic and rustic camp, as close to nature as is possible, but still superbly appointed and luxurious. We were looked after by a wonderful team: guides, hosts and all the staff were engaging, helpful and good company. Fabulous wildlife with sympathetic guiding. We enjoyed walking and canoeing, and especially meeting Mitch, the hippo!
