About Anabezi Camp
The name Anabezi is derived from the camp being situated on the Zambezi River and the many Ana Trees or Winter Thorns (Faidherbia albida) that surround the camp. These winter thorns drop corn yellow pods which attract a wide variety of animals to the area including many elephants, a welcome sight in the camp.
Anabezi is a 22 bed camp located on the banks of the Zambezi River at the Lower end of the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia. The accommodation consists of large luxurious tents, approximately 1000 sq ft in size, positioned on a raised wooden deck. The tents are generously spaced along the Zambezi River bank and the Mushika flood plain, allowing the game to wonder around the camp freely. The plain hosts year-round grazing and offers spectacular diverse game viewing from the comfort of your tent!
The Anabezi cuisine is a fusion of European and African cuisines designed by our passionate head chef, Merle. Fresh continental breakfasts are served, followed by a generous buffet lunch. Guests may indulge in an afternoon high tea of scrumptious treats and fresh fruits. Dinner is a three course plated affair served with some of South Africas finest wines.
The Anabezi River lodge can be found on the site of the old Ana tree lodge in the heart of the Zambezi National Park, in close proximity to the Zambezi river. Upon your arrival to the country you will be greeted and taken via small aircraft to the lodge itself, giving you a first taste of what to expect from the African plains from a truly mesmerising perspective. There are no roads to or from Anabezi - situated in the middle of the bush it is the definition of a remote getaway.
With it’s unique location the Anabezi lodge offers the potential for a vast array of wildlife sightings. Due to the yellow corn pods dropping from the Ana Trees in the surrounding area, many species are attracted to the region to feed and graze along the banks of the Zambezi river.

When to go
Anabezi Camp is closed from December to March due to the rainy season.
April and May - most of the rain has faded away, leaving a landscape that is green and lush, with clear skies and pleasantly mild temperatures.
June, July and August - the nights are generally much cooler, but the days are clear and warm. Make sure you bring warm clothes to wrap up in the early mornings and evenings, as some nights get very cold.
September and October - the temperatures climb and it can get very hot in October. However, the game viewing is spectacular as the animals concentrate around the limited water sources and along the river.
November is variable, it can be hot and dry like October, or, you may be lucky enough to experience the first spectacular storms of the season.
