Lodge style Feel like family
Piece of paradise
Here at Anabezi Camp, on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Lower Zambezi National Park, it feels like coming home: welcome to a very special place. This lodge is one of the few lodges permitted to be in Lower Zambezi National Park. The landscape surrounding the lodge is simply stunning and views include the Zambezi River and the Mushika River flood plain. There is a good chance to witness your most beautiful sunset here, while canoeing down the breathtaking Zambezi River. Counting the most stars you will ever see in the deepest black sky is also an entertaining evening activity. With only eleven spacious and very-well-appointed tents, the camp never feels overcrowded. Personal service is guaranteed, as is amazing bush cuisine and a knowledgeable management and staff. Managers Paul and Lynn will welcome you as family and spoil you with hospitality and kindness (no to mention incredible food and entertaining stories).
The camp consists of eleven luxurious tents, more like ‘suites’, boasting amazing views over the river. Your suite includes a big, comfy bed, sitting area, spacious private deck with inviting lounge chairs, en-suite facilities with bathtub and an outdoor shower (this will be the favourite part of your day). After your evening shower you can truly unwind in your private plunge pool while gazing at the stars. In between safari activities, the main guest area provides a cosy hangout. There is the bar for fresh cocktails and incredible vistas with just a turn of your chair. Breakfast, lunch and dinner - all prepared by the ‘great-cook’, Carle - are served on the deck; have your morning eggs while elephants splash in the river only few meters away. The pampering continues with an expansive high-tea in the afternoon (don’t miss out on the lemon meringue mini pies) and sundowners during the second safari activity. Feeling a little overwhelmed? Dip in the main pool and chill out while you look for hippos, lions, elephants, buffalos and other wildlife species that often happen to roam by.
Activities at Anabezi Camp
The guides at Anabezi Camp set a new standard for guiding, as they know all the holes and gullies of the area. Both the Zambezi River and the Mushika River attract copious wildlife, and the ability to spot animals while cruising down the river in a boat will add a whole new dimension to your safari experience. Up-close-and-personal encounters with elephants, hippos and large herds of buffalo and zebra are ‘business as usual’ at Anabezi Camp. Not only will the guides here seek the Big Five for you (do expect some breathtaking leopard and lion sightings), they will also take time to point out other, more intimate gems of the bush, painting you a complete picture of what the Lower Zambezi is all about. Walking safaris into the Kulefu woodlands are also a great way to discover secrets of this land, making your experience all the more encompassing. And are you a bird-enthusiast? Use the plentiful photographic opportunities to capture a portrait collection of the enormous variety of birds. Together with game drives and canoeing on the Zambezi River, you will leave with ever-lasting memories.
Tripadvisor comments Anabezi Camp
Anabezi is owned and run by a lovely family who makes sure that your visit is perfect in every way. The cuisine is delicious and varied. The accommodations are superb; large, beautifully decorated tents with two bathrooms-one inside and our favorite was outside. The guides are excellent and very knowledgeable. Game-viewing and birding was superb. This was my fifth safari in Africa and I highly recommend Anabezi. You will not be disappointed.Pamela1162 from Buffalo, New York
We spent 4 nights at Anabezi. The Game viewing was superb- especially lion and leopard sightings, plus some stunning birdlife. The chalets are of the highest standard and the food well balanced and delicious. Thanks to Nobby, who set such a high standard of guiding, and to Paul, Lynn, Jess, Trevor and the team for making us feel so welcome.Jake 8484 from Crawley Down, UK
What a fantastic place, everything was perfect! Our guide, Robert, was amazing and absolutely delightful to be around. He was so knowledgeable, patient, fun and knew exactly where to be at the right time for optimal game viewing. One morning he found a pride of lions, mother, father and three tiny cubs which apparently was a very rare sighting. I think he was more excited to see them than we were so his enthusiasm was infectious! He also took us on a canoe ride on the Zambezi River and I have to say I was very nervous about getting into a canoe with hippos and crocodiles in the water but he encouraged me to do it and put me at ease the entire time. I am so happy I did it, I highly recommend this activity as it is so serene and the perspective is fantastic!AntoniaNYC from New York, NY
