Rich in history


Built as the Governor’s retreat, very few knew about the wonders of the Lower Zambezi River – and many hoped to keep it that way.

Declared a National Park in 1983, the Cummings family decided to explore the area, setting up a camp in 1989. With very few roads and little infrastructure, Zambezi River Safari’s opened.

And as time goes on, the Lower Zambezi National Park is continuously recognised as one of the best parks in Africa – both for its incredible, untouched beauty, and the camps that blend in harmoniously with the area. A true gem, enjoyed only by a very lucky few.

Why the great outdoors?

When I joined the safari industry there was lots of poaching and I wanted to contribute to the conservation of wildlife.

How did you learn about the bush?

My grandfather taught me about the bush. I grew up in the nearby village of Chiawa and my grandfather spent a lot of time with me teaching me about our home.

What do you like most about your job?

I like hosting guests, and getting to know them. I like teaching them about the bush, and about conservation of the bush. My most memorable guiding moment was seeing a lion killing a warthog on the river bank while I was in the boat with guests. Right place, right time.

Guide – 8 years

Why the great outdoors?

When I was young, I was part of the Chongololo conservation club, which
taught me all about the bush, wildlife, plant life and birds, while growing my
passion for it.

How did you learn about the bush?

The Chongololo conservation club gave me good, strong basics, and the
people around. It’s always felt quite natural to me, like this is what I was
meant to be.

What do you like the most about your job?

I love seeing all the animals so few get to see. One night, we spotted
lion, leopard and African wild cats on one drive. It was incredible.

Why the great outdoors?

When I was young, I went to a workshop in south Luangwa. Here I learnt
about wildlife, tourism and how we could connect them in meaningful ways.

How did you learn about the bush?

All kinds of influences around me, from when I was very young, to
working in the industry – Robin Pope, from Robin Pope Safari’s being one of
them.

What do you like the most about your job?

Talking to different people from different countries. I get to learn a
lot about places I’ve never been to.

Why the great outdoors?

When I joined the safari industry, there was a lot of poaching. I wanted
to stop it – to contribute to the conservation of wildlife.

How did you learn about the bush?

My grandfather taught me. I grew up in the nearby village of Chiawa
where he introduced me to all kinds of animals and birdlife, teaching me why
it’s important to look after them.

What do you like the most about your job?

Being able to make a real difference by helping with conservation, and
teaching those I meet about it too. I also witnessed a lion killing a warthog
right on the riverbank whilst in a boat with guests – talk about “right place
at the right time”.

Guide - 5 years

Why the great outdoors?

My dream began many years ago as a member of the Chongololo conservation club, when I was a child.

How did you learn about the bush?

I learnt a lot from my father while living in the bush. The Lower Zambezi national Park is special to me, for the natural beauty and also because it is close to my home village of Mugurameno.

What do you like the most about your job?

I like leading walking safaris, and interacting with the guests who stay at Anabezi and Amanzi. My best moment during my time at Anabezi was one memorable night drive, where we were lucky enough to spot two aardvarks, and a lioness with her three cubs.

Camp Guide


Guide – 9 years

Why the great outdoors?

I have a passion for the bush, which started at the age of 14. I used to
collect birds’ nests, which is why I’m a keen birder today.

How did you learn about the bush?

I was born in a village in the southern part of Zambia, right in the
middle of the bush – which is where my knowledge grew. I learnt about guiding
and advanced walking techniques when approaching dangerous wildlife.

What do you like the most about your job?

I love bird watching, bush walks and canoeing on the mighty Zambezi River
- which is why they’re the best part of my job.
