Tusk & Mane - Chula Camp

Lower Zambezi

Tusk and Mane is an owner operated safari operation offering a back to nature wilderness adventure. Owners Kyle Branch and Luke Evans both have extensive experience and knowledge of both Zambia and the Lower Zambezi National Park and either Luke or Kyle will on hand to host each safari.

The primary focus of a Tusk & Mane safari is the wilderness itself.  An experience that takes you back in time to those legendary “Hemingway” escapades in a part of Africa that will reconnect you with nature and replenish your senses. They offer flexible safaris currently between two Fly Camps in the heart of the lower Zambezi national park. The camps are simple with old style luxury camping, under the stars and around the campfire.
