Tusk and Mane is an exceptionally wild yet beautiful combination of three camps in the Lower Zambezi run by born and bred bush boys Luke and Kyle. With a huge focus on conservation, they have found the prime spots in the Lower Zambezi for excellent game viewing by foot, boat or vehicle. With top of the range equipment, the camp is for those who really want to get back to basics without any unnecessary luxury whilst not compromising on wildlife sightings. Affordable and comfortable, this is the ultimate place for those looking to have an adventure exploring remote African bushland.

We recommend a 4-night stay with two nights at each camp
Tusk and Mane have just four tents which they move round their three locations, from a ‘private island’ at the main camp to the bush camps further upstream and up in the mountains. All locations are unique and in places that have relatively been unexplored (except by the boys themselves). As well-experienced guides they know exactly where to look for top sightings.
Both Luke and Kyle grew up in the bush moving to Zambia as their careers flourished, ending up in the Lower Zambezi. Having spent a few years working at other camps in the area they decided to team up and open their own camp. With a huge passion in conservation the guys have set up an incredibly eco-friendly moveable camp in areas they know are the absolute best for wildlife. Their passion for the area and its inhabitants is infectious as is their passion for adventure. If you are looking for an authentic adventure in the style of Livingstone back in the day these are the people who will make it happen! It is an absolute joy to have these experts guide you when you come to stay.
The camps themselves get back to the roots of a bush camp with bucket showers, ice cold beers, comfortable beds and good hearty food. A surprise from the two guys in this rustic location is the exceptional level of cooking. Having spent the day exploring you can come home to hearty dishes and refreshing salads. With the usual generous African portions, you can refuel after your activities! Dinner time isn’t just about the food though, this is an excellent time to sit with your hosts and learn about how they came to set up camp and share stories of wildlife encounters.
