Surrounded by pure African beauty, Amanzi camp is where you nestle into a swinging chair on the porch and listen to rustling leaves of the Ana trees, as an elephant-family roams by to dig into these juicy greens. It is the most recently opened camp in the Lower Zambezi and as a sister lodge of the famous Anabezi Camp, you know the quality standard is high.

ACTIVITIES AT AMANZI CAMP
The Zambezi River is perfect for gentle canoe trips. The current is never too strong and you can glide down at a slow pace, with plenty of time to look around and experience this serene expanse of water. Not surprisingly, canoe trips are usually scheduled in the afternoon at this camp.
Morning game drives are of course also provided. The comfortable 4x4 safari vehicles offer everyone an optimal viewing spot, and the experienced guides go above and beyond to offer you a memorable ride.
For those who feel like a trip on the Zambezi River isn’t complete without casting a line, catching a fierce-fighting Tiger Fish can also be part of your itinerary.
The ultimate way to end the day is with a boat trip on a pontoon, as you explore the fourth largest river in Africa during sunset to view huge hippopotami pods and crocodile crowds, who call the 1,390,000 square kilometres of the Zambezi their home.
And now it is time to make this place your temporary safari home too: it has all the ingredients for an unforgettable, pure safari trip that will forever have a place in your heart.
