Mama ‘Out of Africa’

‘“Africa has her mysteries, and even a wise man cannot understand them.
But a wise man respects them.”
— Miriam Makeba

Your Out of Africa Dream
on the Banks of the magnificent Zambezi River

The Mama Out of Africa set amongst Riverine Trees. Right on the river’s edge, when the river is high you can fish from your deck..

Epic History

The Mama Out of Africa was once a mobile dressing room for Out of Africa film cast– the romantic, academy award-winning film starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. For quite some time it was a
mobile safari vehicle exploring the best wildlife parks in Africa.

Immersive, Romantic and Serene

Very often a parade of elephants and buffalo herds come to graze and drink across the river and hippos are seen wallowing in the water. Hyenas and hippos can be heard during the night and from time to time a lion may interrupt your slumber with its call. A symphony set to make you feel part of the African Bush.
