The beautiful, abundant rains have come to an end, the park is looking lush and we welcome our staff back to camp. Anabezi is now open for guests and Amanzi opens on May 1st. The season has got off to a very wet start with the Chiwengwa and the Mushika still flowing from what has been one of the wettest seasons in years.
Our builders have been hard at work at Anabezi, moving 5 tents to the opposite side of our Zambezi deck. All 12 tents are now river facing and a family unit has been added onto the tent closest to the Mushika deck. In answer to popular demand to accommodate for families, we have designed the perfect tent. The Anabezi family unit features a connected room with two single beds, outside shower and toilet, leading off the private deck. Both Anabezi and Amanzi now have family suites.
For the first time in more than a decade, there has been a positive siting of a cheetah in the Lower Zambezi National Park. What looked like a large male, was spotted behind Sausage Tree Camp. This is exciting, because it was thought that cheetah had died out in the park due to predator competition. However, this recent development means there is a chance that a viable population is still present in the park!
