Nyamatusi Camp is in a wonderful unspoilt wilderness location by the famous Zambezi River. Days are spent immersed in nature as you enjoy land and water-based safaris observing the diverse wildlife of Mana Pools National Park, interspersed with downtime at the camp.
There are only six suites for a maximum of 12 guests so there's never a crowd at Nyamatusi. The large central area includes a two storey open-fronted building with ample space for relaxing, chatting, dining and enjoying the magnificent views towards the river. The deck to the front has additional seating and leads down to a firepit, perfect for sundowner drinks and star gazing. To the side there's a small pool and deck with sunny and shaded areas.
Your tented suite is a real haven. Spacious and air conditioned within, it has a lounge and en-suite bathroom with both a bath and shower, supplemented by an outdoor shower. Your private deck faces the Zambezi and has an indulgent daybed and a plunge pool where you can relax as you sip a chilled drink from your minibar.
Nyamatusi offers an all-round safari experience with game drives, guided walks, canoeing and bird watching, all led by skilled guides keen to show all that Mana Pools has to offer. Catch and release fishing from the riverbank adds yet more variety to your time at Nyamatusi.
