Mama Out of Africa

The Mama Out of Africa is a unique self-catering indoor and semi-outdoor accommodation,  nestled amongst indigenous riverine trees and bush right on the banks of the Zambezi River on the private Kayube Estate, with the Zambezi National Park across the river.

Very often herds of elephants are seen across the river and hippos are seen wallowing in the water. Hyena's and hippos are heard during the night and from time to time a lion call will awake you. All this will make you feel part of the African Bush

The Mama Out of Africa was once a mobile dressing room for the 'Out of Africa'  Film Set starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. and for quite some time it was a mobile safari vehicle exploring the best wildlife parks in Africa.
