Amanzi Camp is a remote tented lodge set on the steep banks of the Zambezi’s Ngwenya channel, in the central/eastern Lower Zambezi National Park.

Amanzi Camp is a very exclusive and comfortable tented lodge which will appeal to those who enjoy small, quiet camps and a high level of comfort. The tented accommodation is really very spacious and luxurious, and very tastefully furnished. The camp has a beautiful location with an elevated position and lovely views, and it has a very relaxed feel. With its swimming pool overlooking the river it is certainly the kind of place where you can ‘slow down’ and spend time relaxing in camp. The camp is run efficiently, the food is good and the staff and guides are very friendly and competent, however Amanzi would not be our first suggestion if a key priority was to enjoy a hosted, social camp atmosphere as meals tend to be individually served (though they are flexible when guests decide to join together). The area around camp, mainly to the west, is very productive for game viewing and as with all camps in the Lower Zambezi, the range of activities on offer is fantastic.
