About Msaku-Mbezi Camp

Msaku-Mbezi Camp is nestled in the lush fringe on a gentle meander of the Zambezi River. The camp is slightly elevated over the river bank enhancing the game viewing experience of the abundant wildlife that visits the river. Watching the sunset after an exciting day's game viewing or fishing for the infamous tiger is a memorable and unique experience.

The lodge is located 10km from the Lower Zambezi National Park entrance and situated almost opposite Mana pools on the Zimbabwe side. Nestled at the foot of the Muchinga escarpment, the Lower Zambezi National Park offers a pristine wilderness of widely varied terrain, from vast grassy plains to tropical forests and peaceful backwaters. Famous for its elephant and buffalo herds, the Lower Zambezi never fails to supply an abundance of game. Bird watchers will find over 300 species of birds.

Experienced guides from the Lower Zambezi National Park will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you from the back of a custom built safari vehicle. Visitors will find the big four (buffalo, elephant, lion and leopard), along with many other species of game. For the more adventurous, an exciting bush walk or canoeing safari can be arranged. A boat cruises down the Zambezi River also offers a different perspective of the river and its wildlife.

Since animals wander through camp, we provide an escort to accompany the client to their chalets after dark.

For self-catering guest, boats and 4X4 vehicles can be provided with some forewarning.

Msaku-Mbezi Lodge is constructed from beautiful stone collected from the river that forms the boundary (Msaku) and the Zambezi (Mbezi). The lodge is thatchd.

Bordered by Royal Zambezi Lodge and Mvu Lodge, the Msaku-Mbezi Lodge is considered one of the most beautiful lodges along this stretch of the Zambezi. The lodge is also very popular with the guests from Lusaka because of the tiger-fishing and yellow-belly bream. Anglers and fly fisherman can fish the mighty Zambezi and experience the thrill of catching of a fierce game Tiger. Clients should bring their own fishing rods.
