Royal Zambezi Lodge
Why we like it
- Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, on the edge of the Lower Zambezi National Park
- Activities on offer are day and night game drives, walking safaris, boat trips for game-viewing, photographic safaris, canoe trips and fishing
- The Royal Zambezi Bush Spa is the first and only bush spa in Zambia
- A beautifully designed contemporary lodge
- Boasting ten classic suites, four deluxe suites complete with a private plunge pool and one Presidential Suite
- An impeccable camp and an excellent choice for a honeymoon
In the evenings gather at the teak bar built around an ancient tree, relax with a drink whilst the sun sets behind the distant mountains.
It took Chris Hamlin only a short time to find out what we wanted, and tailor a proposal which was perfect. He also adapted quickly to necessary modifications, over all, a perfect start!
