Client Reviews

  • Amazing Amanzi

    We spent four nights at the Amanzi Camp, It is probably the only camp where have said wow on entering the room, it was very very spacious with great views over the river, with your own private deck with two hammocks, table and chairs. The beds were very comfortable, there was a large sitting area with a mini bar. Having a hair dryer was a refreshing change. There was a large shower with lots of hot water. The camp had a very nice dining area and bar and we did make use of the swimming pool. The food we had was of a very high standard.

  • One of our favorite safari camps ever…

    Loved this camp and LZNP. One of my all-time favorite safari camps. Stayed 3 nights with my parents at the end of June 2017. A small camp with only four rooms and very personalized service. Solly the manager is excellent at his job. Always enthusiastic, very talkative, and nothing too much trouble. Rooms we had were great and well-spaced. We had the two rooms on the end—a family unit connected by a small bridge between the bathrooms—doors lock if that is a concern. Dinner was a la carte ordered pre-evening activity and breakfast and lunch a buffet.

  • Luxury in Paradise

    This camp is very intimate with only 4 very spacious tents. The guides as well as the management are excellent in knowledge and in quality. The food is top, the surroundings lovely. You feel like in a garden of Eden, everything is there and everyone (game and people) is relaxed. Many thanks to all of you for 3 marvellous and unforgettable days “in paradise”.
