Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.


Talking about conservation is the easy bit. But actually turning words into actions, and creating a sustainable relationship with everything around one, makes a real difference. This is how we, at Anabezi, do it.

Conservation at home

What drives this cause


Both Anabezi and Amanzi Camps are built using the best ecological building practices. Both camps are almost exclusively supplied with electricity via solar energy systems. Most of the wood used in and around the camp is salvaged from the old Kulefu Camp, making sure there’s no waste. The raised walkways allow the camp to have a very light footprint and the wooden bridges allow for the game to wonder freely around the camp, making it easy for them to get down to the water. The camp has also been designed around the Ana Tree Pods trees that many of the animals like to feed on, so as not to interrupt their daily feast.

Since the origination of Anabezi, ZAWA and CLZ anti-poaching patrols have resumed their efforts in the Eastern part of the park – Anabezi providing the necessary support and back-up patrols, making sure it is protected at all times.

Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ)

What drives this cause


We’re big supporters of the CLZ, a Zambian non-profit initiative that was started to assist with conservation in the Lower Zambezi National Park and the areas that surround it. Committed to the sustainable use of natural resources and wildlife conservation, Anabezi does its bit to financially and operationally help with the deployment and back-up of anti-poaching teams on the east side of the park – to ensure that future generations are able to experience the same beauty we do today.

The Kayila Conservation Initiative (KCI)

What drives this cause


Run by our very own Community and Liaisons Manager, Jealous “Chops” Nyandowo, we deploy 7 scouts on the Western boundaries of the park in our anti-poaching efforts. This initiative, funded by Anabezi and its shareholders, and done in conjunction with the CLZ and ZAWA, has seen a major drop in poaching in the area.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

What drives this cause


We are the second camp in Zambia to go carbon neutral – which is how we take responsibility for the greenhouse gas emissions we create in our everyday operations. Working with BioCarbon Partners, we have purchased Carbon Credits from the Lower Zambezu REDD+ project, playing a vital role in the protection of the natural habitat and boundary in the northern part of the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Pack for Purpose

What drives this cause


Anabezi is a member of the Pack for Purpose initiative – an initiative that asks you to donate a small portion of your suitcase space, and pack supplies needed by the communities for their schools and medical clinics. This small gesture can make a very big impact on the lives of those who live around the camp.

Visit the Anabezi & Amanzi Camp page on the Pack for Purpose website, to find out what supplies are needed for our projects.
