A Must Tourist Destination In Zambezi, Zanzibar

In the Zambezi Region (formerly known as the Caprivi Strip) in northern Namibia lies one of southern Africa’s most famed camps.

Ngepi is an oasis for over landers on long journeys.

The camp has a lovely river setting, a croc-proof swimming pool for cooling off in, good food in the restaurant, an open-air bar and a range of accommodation options, from riverside camping spots to family bush huts and tree houses set right on the river, with an open wall so you can lie in bed looking out on the hippo-dotted water.

What’s really special about Ngepi?  Is its quirkiness.

There are funny signs all over the camp (like “Please keep on the grass”), and the toilets are probably the most memorable you will ever come across.

Take your pick of ablution spots from the double-storey Poopa Falls, the Royal Throne (with its spectacular river view from the “throne” seat), and the Garden of Eden, a loo set within a wild garden.

Also, Get up close and personal with marine life in your bedroom at this underwater hotel in Zanzibar.

Attached 250 metres off Pemba Island, the room sleeps just two people, and has a deck at sea level with a lounge, as well as a rooftop deck for sun tanning.

Downstairs below the water level is the bedroom, with a double bed surrounded by four glass walls, offering 360-degree views of shoals of tropical reef fish, as well as a few resident bat fish and a trumpet fish named Nick which are always swimming around the room. By night, the underwater spotlights around the room attract more unusual species such as squid.
