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 semi-mobile camp offers the kind of intimacy with nature that only exists by immersing yourself in the heart of the wild.

At Zambezi Expeditions, you will connect with nature deeply and meaningfully beside the life-giving Zambezi River, where you’re free to become one with the wild. Set under the shade of winter thorn and ebony trees, six Meru-style tents powered by solar feature ensuite bathrooms with hot bucket showers and space for leisure overlooking the wilderness outside. While under the comfort of canvas, you’ll fall asleep to the sound of the river and chuckles of hippos and wake up with the dawn chorus to a spectacular African sunrise.

Peppered across the Nkupi camping site, Zambezi Expedition’s main area boasts a shared dining space with camera charging facilities, and a glistening pool for reprieve on warm days. Outside, under the glitter of stars, a fire is lit each evening where you can gather with family and new friends on your return to camp. Wholesome meals are prepared by our chefs using fresh ingredients and served with the same warm service you can expect at all African Bush Camp properties.

With privileged Zambezi River frontage, your days will be filled with adventurous canoeing safaris, tracking game along the riverbanks by foot, and casting a line for catch-and-release tiger fishing. Don’t miss 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.

Accommodating just 12 guests at a time, Zambezi Expeditions is positioned for privacy and bush solitude, inviting you to disconnect from the everyday and find luxury in the wild.

Reviews

  • 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!

Mambanje Community Garden

Food security and access to healthy food and produce are major challenges faced by communities surrounding our camps. The Mambanje community is located near the Hwange National Park border. This community has about 160 households in the community. The scarcity of food in this community has a massive impact on the livelihoods of the communities with many struggling to feed their families.

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.

Mola rural district (village) is located parallel to the Bumi wildlife area and is roughly a 1.5-hour drive from our Bumi Hills Safari lodge in Kariba Zimbabwe.
