Need to Know

  • We take a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 8 people (special arrangements can be made for larger groups upon request).
  • Our minimum age limit is 14 years - there is no maximum age limit but common sense should be used.
  • No previous canoeing/walking experience is necessary but guests should be reasonably fit and healthy.
  • There is no maximum luggage weight, as luggage will be transferred by vehicle from camp to camp.
  • Natureways Odyssey Safari Camps have no permanent ablution facilities, however camps are served by the luxury of long drop toilets and, for night-use, all tents have en-suite chemical toilets. Guest can also revel in a luxurious hot shower underneath the star-studded expanse of the African sky.
  • All Odyssey Safaris are fully backed up with a Natureways team and 4x4 vehicle. The team will take care of all our guests’ needs and camp chores. During our mobile safaris the camp will be taken down and all equipment and guest luggage will be transferred to the next campsite by vehicle after guests have left for their day’s activity be it canoeing or walking.
  • Additional nights can be added to any safari - for example, start a safari with a
    Camp Zambezi so you are well rested, before starting a 3 day Mana Shoreline
    Canoe Safari, or alternatively end a canoe safari with a Camp Zambezi so that you have an extra day to relax on the shores of the Zambezi.
  • Our Odyssey Safaris are true bush camps, but offering a little rustic luxury – there is no electricity or plumbing and there are no permanent structures. It is a taste of the way a safari used to be - a truly authentic, African bush experience. Camps are eco-friendly, designed to be erected and dismantled within hours, leaving no trace on the environment.
  • Odyssey camps are fully equipped with a mobile kitchen run by an experienced
    bush cook, bar facilities and a dining area with full waiter service. All produce is brought in fresh and meals are prepared in camp by one of our
    famed bush cooks. All breads and pastries are freshly baked on the open campfire. Vegetarian or other dietary preferences can be catered to providing Natureways is advised 14 days prior to the safari.
  • All Odyssey Safaris include a supply of local beers, spirits, imported wines, minerals, cordials, mineral water, tea and coffee. Drinks are served by our friendly camp staff whilst guests relax. We recommend you contact Natureways with any drink preferences i.e. if a particular brand of local beer is preferred. Clients are also free to bring their own beverages, cooler boxes can be set aside for this purpose. There is no limit to the amount of beverages you may bring.
  • Odyssey Safaris do NOT include transfers. Clients are able to charter return flights to Mana Pools National Park to maximise time spent on safari. Commercial flights can be arranged to and from Harare, Kariba, Victoria Falls, Hwange, Lusaka or Livingstone.
