Zambezi Expedition boasts one of the best settings in Zimbabwe’s famous Mana Pools National Park on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Comfortable and classic, this mobile 10-tent camp is the most intimate accommodation in Mana Pools, providing each exclusive guest with high-end pampering, top-quality guiding, and unforgettable game viewing.
Zambezi Expedition is a 10-bedded luxury mobile camp, set up prior to each guest’s arrival along various riverside campsites. Guest accommodations consist of just 10 Meru tents decorated in the classic safari style and set under the shade of winterthorn and ebony trees on the southern banks of the Zambezi River in the heart of Mana Pools National Park. From the director’s chairs out front, guests can look out onto the Zambezi River and witness the parade of resident hippos, waterbucks, and elephants come to its life-giving waters. Inside, “glamping” is at its most refined with en-suite bathroom facilities, flush toilets, alfresco hot bucket showers, campaign furniture, and 12-volt lighting and charging facilities for those essential safari cameras.
At the heart of Zambezi Expedition is a communal mess tent where guests gather for meals and relaxation. Meals are served around a single table in traditional safari style and feature three-course feasts of deliciousness. While modest, the hosts at Zambezi Expedition are experts in the kitchen and gracious in their service, always at the ready to prepare special dining arrangements under the stars on the banks of the river and welcoming guests into the Zambezi Expedition family with genuine kindness. Only enhancing the setting and service is the wildlife, which can range from baboons and vervet monkeys playing in the trees overhead or elephants wandering between the tents in search of a seedpod snack.
The real attraction of Zambezi Expedition is the stunning surroundings and top-quality guiding. The guides here are some of the finest in Africa and lead guests on exciting canoeing, walking, and 4WD game drive safaris while imparting their unprecedented knowledge of the African bush. Zambezi Expedition is specifically designed to give guests unique access to the Zambezi River, whether on adventure canoe safaris, tracking game on foot along the shore, or fishing for the legendary tiger fish. One of the highlights of the Zambezi Expedition experience, however, is a game drive along the floodplain into the heart of Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its plethora of big cats, plains game, and over 350 bird species.Request Information
