Royal Zambezi Lodge

Very few places on earth offer the absolute freedom and untouched wilderness like the National Parks of Zambia in Southern Africa. Lower Zambezi, the first carbon neutral National Park in the world, provides a platform for unforgettable, unspoiled wildlife experiences on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.

This piece of Africa combines a diversity of natural wonders, creating a wildlife rich landscape between the backdrop of the Zambezi escarpment and one of the world’s most intriguing rivers. This incredible phenomenon forms a natural wildlife corridor – boasting a profusion of wildlife and sanctuary sculpted by Mother Nature herself.

Royal Zambezi Lodge offers the discerning traveller a front row seat to these unique wilderness experiences, all the while welcoming you ‘home’ to luxury tented and thatched lodges overlooking the Zambezi River.

There are fifteen tented rooms and suites that include a family unit and three Presidential Suites. All stand-alone and spacious, the large green canvas tents under thatch roofs are positioned for maximum views and complete privacy.

All tents are impeccably furnished with a contemporary style, comfort, and muted bush colours. With size and en-suite facilities being the differentiating factors, all tents and suites include king size beds, comfortable sofas, and airy verandahs. Tents are also equipped with mosquito nets, fans, and hairdryers (on request). The central building with its lofty thatched roofs and open plan is comprised of a reception area, dining room with fireplace and elegant lounge with more cushy sofas. This is surrounded by a wide shady deck with copper roof for al fresco dining or afternoon tea. Timber decks and terracing extends over the floodplain where there are evening campfires to gather around to share epic stories of the day’s game viewing.

Finally: this camp offers amazing spa-treatments. The Royal Zambezi Bush Spa won several awards over the years and includes two treatment rooms, a steam room, jacuzzi and refreshing plunge pool. Pamper yourself with a recovering body massage, or a nourishing sea mud wrap; all therapists use local products enriched with indigenous ingredients.
