Plan your journey

Location

The camp sits on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Overlooking a floodplain and riverine forest, Anabezi is in the remote, eastern end of the park, close to the confluence of the Zambezi and Mushia Rivers. Both the rivers attract an abundance of wildlife and the area has one of the highest densities of game and birdlife in the Lower Zambezi.

Rooms

12 huge tents are linked to the main area by elevated walkways, below which warthog and hippo roam the grass. Each open-plan room has neutral toned décor with polished wooden flooring, dark wooden furniture and bright floor-to-ceiling windows. The en suite sits in the middle of the space, flanked by a comfortable seating area with a coffee table and writing desk and the bedroom. Large sliding doors open out to a balcony with a private plunge pool and loungers, a pleasant spot to watch the wildlife around the camp.

Communal Areas

The whole camp is built on raised decks and walkways with the Zambezi escarpment as a wonderful backdrop. The open-sided main area, elevated by felled tree trunks, offers multiple lounge areas with plenty of sofas and armchairs to relax in. A central water feature is surrounded by the bar and dining area and a wraparound deck offers more shaded space for dining. To the side of the main area, rolling lawns house a swimming pool with loungers and a small campfire for post-dinner drinks. On the opposite side of camp, another intimate deck is on offer where a small lounge, bar and dining area offer views across the floodplains.

Activities

Guests can take day and night drives with knowledgeable and experienced local guides, go on escorted walking safaris into the Kulefu woodlands or take to the water in canoes for riverside game viewing. Sunset boat cruises on the river are also available, ending with sundowners.

WET SEASON – ‘EMERALD SEASON’

Wettest time of the year, with rain falling most days of the month, although rarely prolonged in nature. Temperatures are a very pleasant, averaging 30°C/86°F midday, while the nights average 20°C/68°F. During this period the park transforms into a lush green landscape, a stark contrast to the dry season.

Like the rest of Zambia, the Lower Zambezi has very distinct wet and dry seasons; rain is common, usually in the form of sharp thunderstorms from November through to early May, the rest of the year clear skies dominate. We would generally recommend visiting the park during the peak of the dry season; as the landscape dries up wildlife becomes more concentrated around the rivers and watercourses whilst at the same time thinner/ drier vegetation improves visibility. Having said this, there is a lot to be said for the ‘emerald season’; beautiful green scenery, fantastic birding, large flowing rivers and fewer tourists can make for a wonderful and unique experience.

Game viewing can be spectacular during October; however, temperatures continue to rise before the start of the rains, with midday temperatures over 40°C/104°F not uncommon. We suggest early morning starts during this time to make the most of the cool temperatures!
