Royal Zambezi Lodge
The Lower Zambezi National Park spans 1,500sq miles of vast, rich wilderness, the playground of many an Elephant, Zebra, Lion, Hippo, Buffalo and plenty other incredible creatures.
Poised on the edge of this reserve is the Royal Zambezi Lodge, right on the banks of the Zambezi River with far-reaching views of an untamed land and its wandering wildlife.
This Zambian safari lodge has been made to segue subtly into the scenery, comprising just 15 canvas homes for guests sheltered beneath sturdy thatched huts. Each is roomy, with a minimum floorplan of 62sq m, and evokes a natural ambience with solid wood features, white mosquito nets billowing over king-size beds and wide windows framing the bush and river just outside. Conveniently, all of the guestrooms sport private pools and verandas, though if you’d like to push the boat out a little further then opt for one of the Presidential Suites, which also feature freestanding copper tubs and daybeds overlooking the river.
Every day, friendly guides take visitors out into the bush on game drives, walking safaris and birdwatching excursions, or down the river on boat tours, canoeing trips or fishing expeditions. There’s plenty to see and do here, then when you’re ready to unwind you can look forward to delectable meals throughout the day, a rather special Bush Spa, dips in the shared pool or your private plunge pool, drinks on the veranda and quiet moments spent reading in the lounge.
However you prefer to relax, the Royal Zambezi Lodge has you covered.
