An authentic yet luxurious tented camp, Zambezi Expeditions is located on the banks of the Zambezi River in Mana Pools National Park, and the setting is fantastic.

With just six tents, Zambezi Expeditions can be booked either on a shared or exclusive basis, so is ideal for both small groups and families. The large tents have adjoining bathrooms with flush loos and bucket showers, and the vast beds are extremely comfortable.

Dine under the stars on the banks of the Zambezi River - expect three course meals rather than picnic baskets - and the food is delicious. Lunch is buffet style, allowing guests to regroup and unwind in between game drives.

The team at Zambezi Expeditions excel in service, and the guide/host is particularly brilliant. Not only does he share his unprecedented knowledge of the African bush, but makes guests feel extremely welcome and at ease.

Activities include guided walking safaris, game drives, canoeing and fishing. Expect to see a plethora of wildlife, from hippo, herds of buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog, crocodile, zebra, eland, sable, kudu antelope, and over 350 bird species - that is to name but a few.

For an all round Mana experience, combine a stay at Zambezi Expeditions with sister camp Kanga Bush Camp which is situated inland in Mana Pools.

Canoeing along the Zambezi River from the camp is a great way to see the wildlife.
