Day to day

Check in to your flight at Victoria Falls International Airport for your small plane transfer to Mana Pools airstrip, where you will be met by your guide for the drive to camp. Arrive at Nyamatusi Tented Camp to a warm welcome by the staff and a fresh beverage.

Before settling into your spacious, river-facing suite, you’ll have a moment to relax in the lounge as you are briefed on the lodge and your stay. This is the perfect moment to take a deep breath as you take in the peaceful African riverine setting and feel the weight lift off your shoulders.

Located close to the meandering Zambezi River which nourishes the lush surroundings, Nyamatusi opens its doors seasonally from April to November. This means that the animals in this area are free from human contact for up to six months of the year, creating truly raw encounters in season. Spot wildlife on walking safaris, game drives and even on canoeing safaris. Fishing and birding are also great activities to take in the surrounds at a relaxed pace.
