Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River, Royal Zambezi Lodge offers luxury accommodations on the doorstep of the uncrowded Lower Zambezi National Park.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of fifteen spacious canopied suites arranged for maximum privacy. The eight Deluxe Suites include extra length mattresses dressed in fine linens and down pillows. The Family Suite is constructed of two conjoined Deluxe Suites with a shared seating area in between and is located closer to the main lodge. For the ultimate indulgence, there are seven Presidential Suites available which also come with an outdoor shower, free-standing copper bath, a large lounge area, and a private day bed on the spacious lounge. Each suite features a private deck with a plunge pool.
The camp is located near the Lower Zambezi National Park, the first carbon-neutral national park situated opposite Mana Pools National Park. Once the private game reserve of Zambia’s president, it is now a national park and comprises 2,542 square miles of true wilderness away from the large crowds. A small area on the valley floor is home to many of the bigger mammals including elephant, buffalo, hippo, waterbuck, kudu, zebra, and crocodiles, and occasionally, roan, eland, and the Samango monkey. There are plenty of birds in the area including fish eagles, red-winged pratincole, the elegant crested guinea fowl, black eagle, and vast swarms of quelea.
