Nyamatusi Camp Zimbabwe
Nyamatusi Camp Zimbabwe Sunset Activity Zambezi River

Nyamatusi Camp Zimbabwe is a new camp within Mana Pools National Park. Mana Pools is simply one of the wildest and most remote parts of Africa on the banks of the Zambezi, yet it is accessible on daily bush flights. The camp offers luxury and comfort in the bush and is eco-conscious and stylish without pretension. Fully solar-powered and built from all-natural materials, it is definitely elegant sitting on the banks of the Zambezi, where your Mana Pools safari plays out against this stunning sweep of a riverine landscape. Here, you can expect epic encounters with Africa’s jaws, claws and paws, leopard, lion and sometimes cheetah. 

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.

Nyamatusi means’ wild game’ - here, you will certainly spend your time walking in the footsteps of ancient explorers and elephant ‘corridors’ across the floodplains. If you’re lucky, you’ll see one of the larger, well-known bulls stand on his back legs to reach up for the remaining fresh leaves. Irrespective, you’ll definitely watch the drama of nature play out before your eyes on game drives or thrilling canoeing safaris. Fishing on the Zambezi River (catch and release only) and birding safaris are highlights. All these activities are included in your stay and led by professionally qualified and passionate guides keen to share their knowledge and love of the bush with you. Children over the age of 7 are welcome at Nyamatusi Camp Mana Pools, with no age restriction at Nyamatusi Mahogany. Mana Pools Mana Pools National Park walking safaris and canoeing are very adventurous and, as such, are only possible for children over the age of sixteen years.
