Sometimes you just selfishly don't want to tell the world about a hidden gem that you find. Amanzi is THAT place. It's more than a stay, it is an experience. Wildlife sightings were outstanding! The rooms are private, have full view of the river, are spacious, comfortable and well-stocked (whiskey bar, fridge full of drinks, toothbrushes, etc). The experience of Amanzi is about the people that work there. The cuisine was incredible. Chef Oscar is a truly gifted chef. I really really wished I could eat more! Robert is very engaging, knowledgeable, considerate (to us and the animals!) and personable. Every jeep/boat ride was full of excitement. Biggie is a very welcoming, conversational host. Thanks to Clement for his excellent spotting as he caught us off guard many times. The rest of the staff were so good. We laughed a lot at Amanzi with Robert and Biggie. So many stories to tell about this place. You really need to get there!

This is a small and very intimate camp which was wonderful. We enjoyed having the whole camp to ourselves [our family], the rooms were comfortable and decorated beautifully, the staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful and the food from chef Oscar's kitchen was really good! The boats and vehicles were new and in good condition and the game viewing as well as the walking safaris were wonderful. A great team running a great little camp!! Well done!!

Staying at Amanzi was a very special experience. We were a group of 6 and as there are only 4 luxury tents, we were fortunate to have the whole camp to ourselves. Biggie is an excellent manager and from the moment we were introduced to everyone, the service was not only outstanding but so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We felt so at home in these spectacular surroundings with views of the Ngwenya channel right in front of us leading into the Zambezi. The rooms are equipped with everything you need with distance between each for privacy. There is an outside deck with a hammock to laze in and one afternoon lying quietly, I was able to watch warthog grazing a couple of metres away from me. The food everyday was exceptional and lovingly prepared by Ivan the chef who amazed us with the different delicious dishes that he was able to conjure up so far away in the bush. The planning must be meticulous and it shows in the upkeep and running of this magnificent lodge. Robert was an outstanding guide and he was assisted by Clement as his tracker. We saw lots of different leopard, lion and herds of buffalo and elephant with babies as well as the elusive wild dog. At night we were also extremely lucky to see civet, spotted genet and even porcupine. We have stayed at many luxury lodges over the last 30 years and Amanzi is well and truly at the top of our list for accommodation, game viewing (both in the bush and on the river), food, intimacy and friendliness. We will definitely be going back and highly recommend that others have the same magical experience that we had.

Amanzi Camp, was perfect! The small team were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. The camp is in a great location for a mass of game which meant there were lions and leopards everywhere. The light in the acacia forests next to the Zambezi was fantastic for photography, and with the guide Robs 28 years of experience, he always got you in the perfect spot

Thank you for an amazing stay!

We spent 3 nights at Amanzi as part of a trip through Botswana and Zambia, because of the opportunity to fish for tiger fish on the Zambezi. The staff were extremely warm and friendly. The tent cabins and other lodge facilities were very well maintained, clean, and comfortable, with views over the river. Tiger fishing was successful, but the wildlife and birdlife were the real highlights.
Our guide Robert was very experienced and explained the local environment and animal life well, and achieved good leopard sightings every day, along with sighting over 80 species of birds in drives and boat rides around the camp. Clement guided the boat trips, including the successful tiger fishing.
Food was excellent. Chef Oscar produced great restaurant quality meals, going through the evening menus in detail before serving dinner. Overall, Amanzi was the best experience we had on a very good trip!

Amazing facility with wonderful hosts who saw to our every request.
Robert and Celment both amazing guides and Oscar was a wonderful chef.

Best thing is after 11 other safaris, finally saw the wild dogs here.
They balanced beautifully between the river boating excursions and the game drives…lions, leopards, elephants and hippos daily!

From the luxury accomodation, to the delicious food created by Oscar, our fantastic guide, Robert and spotter, Clement, the breath taking view, the welcoming and helpful team and not forgetting the array of game on the doorstep - it all created a perfect stay in the Lower Zambezi National Park and created memories to treasure.
Thank you team Amanzi Camp!

I Spent four nights at the camp with my whole family. It was far beyond my expectations!! I couldn’t recommend staying here enough. The safari drives are amazing with Roberts expansive knowledge and the rooms are beautiful. You also will have the opportunity to go on a sun set cruise down the Zambezi. We were all lost for words and couldn’t stop smiling throughout our stay!

We had the most incredible experience at Amanzi! Our guide Robert showed us the best time- his skills, his experience and his kindness blew us away and made our trip. By the time we left we felt like family:) We will forever remember all the wildlife he showed us that made us feel like we were living in a nature movie, the exciting fishing trips and the lovely sundowners as the glowing sun dipped below the horizon. The hotel and location are gorgeous, the room relaxing and beautiful, the food top notch and the whole staff amazing. We really could not have asked for a better time.

We had an amazing stay for 4 nights. The staff were so welcoming, the food delicious and the tents so luxurious! Robert the guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and charismatic.
Would highly recommend this as a place to experience a safari in Zambia. The park is stunning, not busy and so many animals to see.
