Our Thoughts

The location is everything here – this lodge has three kilometres of unspoilt river frontage, which acts as a springboard for game drives, boat trips, canoeing excursions and walking safaris. It is also home to one of Zambia’s very few bush spas, and during a stay make sure you request a private candlelit dinner, which will be memorably set up on an island in the river.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast overlooking the Lower Zambezi River, where the team of expert chefs will prepare dishes to order or simply whizz up a healthy smoothie.

Lunch need not interrupt a good day's fishing or game drives. With the option of a gourmet picnic lunch or a full outdoor buffet in the National Park, complete with white linen tableware, the concept of outdoor dining takes on a new dimension.

Dinner is served at private tables under the stars, or by a roaring fire on a cooler night. Alternatively guests may relax in their rooms and have dinner brought to them on their private deck. To celebrate special occasions, guests may enjoy drinks by a camp fire and a candlelit dinner on a deserted island on the Zambezi.

There are ten Classic Suites and four Deluxe Suites at Royal Zambezi Lodge. The entry level Classic Suites stand alone and are complete with shady verandas and en-suite baths with flush toilets and large showers. The large canvas tents nestle under mature trees and are all positioned for the maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views and complete privacy. The tents are impeccably furnished with a contemporary, understated elegance. Natural tones, luxurious textures and comfortable armchairs create the perfect retreat after a morning game drive while extra length sprung mattresses with pure cotton linen and feather pillows ensure a blissful night's sleep.

The Deluxe Suites are the epitome of the luxury safari experience. Two of the suites offer the same tented interior as the Classic Suites whilst also offering an outdoor bath and shower and plunge pool. A further two Deluxe Suites push luxury to an even higher level. These suites are not tented and due to a larger surface area they also have an indoor lounging area. Outdoors they offer a sala overlooking the river in addition to a shower and copper roll-top bath, sunloungers and private plunge pool. In all, the Deluxe Suites provide ultimate luxury whilst allowing guests to interact with the wilderness that surrounds them. Ideal for honeymoon couples, special occasion holidays, or for those who simply want to experience Zambia's finest safari accommodation.

The location for Royal Zambezi Lodge was chosen particularly for the wide variety of activities available, including game viewing, fishing, fly-fishing, sunset river cruises, professionally guided canoeing trips, open vehicle guided drives, night drives, walking safaris, birding safaris and photographic safaris.
