Zambezi Expeditions Camp (formerly Lifestyles Camp) is situated in the Mana Pools National Park, Northern Zimbabwe, below the Zambezi River. The Camp lies on the shores of the Lower Zambezi River.
Access to Zambezi Expeditions is either via charter flight to Mana Pools main airstrip, a scheduled road transfer from Harare, taking five hours, or on a self-drive basis, in a 4x4 vehicle, but for seasoned off-roaders only!
Expeditions is a cosy mobile 8 bedded camp allowing access to the Zambezi River. The camp operates between May and October and has a minimum stay policy of 3 nights for two people.
The tents have en-suite bathroom facilities that include flush toilets and an alfresco hot bucket shower. Although a mobile camp, Zambezi Expeditions is best described as a luxury experience, evident in the furnishings and facilities, including 12 volt lighting and charging facilities.
There is a well serviced mess tent, with a dining and seating area, where surprisingly elegant meals are served. The experience is enjoyed by people who seek adventure on the Zambezi River whilst absorbing the peace and tranquillity around them.
Activities at Zambezi Expeditions Camp include canoeing, walking, game drives and fishing. Canoeing takes you close to an abundance of elephant, hippo, big herds of buffalo, as well as fantastic bird species.
Walking safaris offer the chance of spotting the large mammals, like lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog, zebra, eland, sable, kudu antelope and giraffe.No previous canoeing experience is necessary, but one should be fit as you will be paddling in a steady current, although no rapids will be paddled.
Fishing is possible during the excursions on the river, either from the banks or off an island in the middle of the Zambezi River.
Game drives along the flood plain in open 4 x 4 land cruisers are bound to offer excellent game sightings.
Mana Pools is a legendary National Park, well known for its wildlife rich flood plains, the mighty Zambezi River and the magnificent views of the back drop of the Zambezi escarpment.
Zambezi Expeditions offers a perfect combination with Kanga Camp, situated inland in Mana Pools.
