Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp

In 2015, Anabezi’s sister Camp Amanzi opened for those travelers who prefer a more rustic feel. Amanzi camp is situated directly on the banks of the Ngwenya channel. The name "Amanzi" means water in the Tonga language and draws inspirations from the site’s intimate position on the Zambezi.  

The camp consists of 4 tents, each on a raised teak deck. The tents have an indoor shower and bathroom, as well as a private sitting area and balcony overlooking the Zambezi.

The camp is intimate yet private with the tents generously spaced and connected with a raised walkway to the main area. Two of the tents are configured to function as a family tent which makes it perfect for small groups and families wanting to share an experience with this beautiful part of the world. 

The main area offers stunning views over the Ngwenya channel and a mosaic of islands that are home to a group of elephant bulls.  The main area has a pool that share the bank with the river and is surrounded by a teak sun deck. 

Amanzi Tent
Accommodation consists of 4 traditional safari tents, approximately 500 sq ft in size, positioned on a raised wooden deck. The tents are generously spaced allowing the game to wonder around the camp freely.

There is a family unit which is essentially two of the tents back to back allowing for a two bedroom, two bathroom family tent perfect for groups with young children.

Each of the luxury tents boast:
• indoor bathroom;
• a spacious sitting area;
• two teak double beds or placed within one well designed mosquito net;
