Nyamatusi Camp Zimbabwe Sunset Activity Zambezi River

Located along the banks of the Zambezi River, Nyamatusi Camp offers a unique blend of elegance and adventure. An extraordinary destination where design, luxury accommodation, and exhilarating safari experiences converge in the pristine wilderness of Mana Pools.

Nestled within the magnificent wilderness of Mana Pools, Nyamatusi Camp boasts a design that seamlessly integrates with the natural landscape. The lodge is carefully positioned to offer breathtaking views of the Zambezi River and the surrounding floodplains. The main communal area features open-sided structures, thatched roofing, and elevated decks, providing guests with a sense of openness and connection to the environment. The camp's design is inspired by local materials and cultural elements, reflecting the rich heritage of Zimbabwe.

Every aspect of Nyamatusi Camp's design showcases meticulous attention to detail. The interiors are tastefully adorned with a fusion of contemporary and African-inspired decor, creating an atmosphere of understated luxury. Natural textures, earthy tones, and carefully chosen artwork reflect the surrounding wilderness and create a soothing and welcoming ambience. Comfortable seating areas, elegant furnishings, and soft lighting complete the overall design, ensuring a relaxed and unforgettable experience.


The main camp has six luxury tented ‘suites’ with uninterrupted views of the river and the Zambezi escarpment beyond - a vista revered by many who have visited this area.

Next door, the same camp is repeated, named Nyamatusi Mahogany and is set up for guests travelling with children or in a group and is family-friendly. Both lodge’s guest tents come decorated with soft drapery, curtains and ceilings to give a more suite feel, more than a tent.

Further, excellent additions include air-conditioning (a life-saver in the Mana Pools heat), indoor and outdoor showers, a private viewing deck with comfy seating, and a plunge pool. Charging points are within your guest tent for those all-important cameras and phones, with the latter serving only as a camera, as this area is a black hole for the world of cellular! Your Mana Pools safari follows the gentle ebb and flow of life on the river. 

The main deck is separate, consisting of a beautifully constructed double level with an upstairs library, seating area and bar, and downstairs is the dining area with a fire pit, swimming pool and deck for star gazing. From here, you can marvel at the incredible sights and sounds of one of Africa’s last remaining wilderness hinterlands.

For fishing enthusiasts, Mana Pools offers excellent opportunities for catch-and-release fishing, allowing you to try your hand at landing the iconic tigerfish or bream.

Discover the beauty of Mana Pools on foot with guided walking safaris, allowing you to appreciate the smaller details of the ecosystem and get closer to the wildlife. Walking safaris provide a unique opportunity to learn about the flora and fauna of the area and gain a deeper understanding of the delicate balance of the ecosystem.
