Nyamatusi Camp


Safari sophistication meets the wild Zambezi at this luxury tented camp in Mana Pools National Park

The latest addition to the African Bush Camps collection, this intimate tented camp offers the ultimate in luxury safari living. Located within the remote eastern fringes of UNESCO-listed Mana Pools National Park, regular wildlife sightings here include elephant, lion and the endangered wild dog. With the Zambezi River on its doorstep, the sweeping views at Nyamatusi Camp are exquisite. There’s a real sense of seclusion here, and the elegant design is especially nostalgic of the wild setting that surrounds it. The camp sits right on the riverbank, and the main two-tiered lodge is indulgently open-plan. At the top, a spacious lounge leads into a gorgeous wood-topped bar area, while beneath, a contemporary dining room leads out to a soft-cushioned fire pit and splash pool. Throughout, soft neutral colours complement contemporary African furnishings, and each level includes an expansive viewing deck to maximise after-hours game viewing opportunities.

There are just six elegant suites spread out along the riverfront. Each one is tented and luxurious, and the views are just superb. Designed with a sophisticated style in mind, the canvas tents are raised onto wooden decks and include fold-back screen doors and cosy indoor seating areas. At the rear, the bathrooms include an outdoor shower, and a couple  indulge with a private bathtub. With the ultimate luxury in mind – especially for when the  summer temperatures soar – the suites include an individual plunge pool, set into a large private viewing deck overlooking the river.
