Zeanwi, 57, died last year unexpectedly in Brussels where he was being treated for an undisclosed illness.
Sudanese media said that Bashir will also hold talks with Ethiopia Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn on developments regarding relations between Khartoum and Juba with respect to the progress on implementing cooperation agreements they signed this year.
Ethiopia has been the main venue of negotiations between Sudan and South Sudan and also played a crucial role in helping bridge differences over the years.
