Lower Zambezi National Park

Royal Zambezi Lodge Location Map

Royal Zambezi Lodge is an intimate family-owned property situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River in Zambia, on the edge of the unique Lower Zambezi National Park and directly opposite Mana Pools. The lodge is surrounded by a game management area which offers fantastic game viewing in open woodland, grassy floodplains and riverine forest. The Lower Zambezi National Park, only a 5 minutes drive away, is home to huge herds of elephants and buffalo, and offers frequent and reliable lion and leopard sightings.

One of the best ways to experience the true beauty of the river and get up close to animals on the river banks is on a canoe trip. There are few things more relaxing than drifting gently down the river in a canoe. Whether you are exploring the water-hyacinth studded channels, getting up close to elephant, buffalo and hippo, or bird watching, this is truly one of the best ways to experience the Zambezi.

The Classic Suites are private units complete with shady verandah and spacious en-suite bathrooms. The Deluxe Suites have private pools, a day bed (sala) and an inside and outside bathroom (shower and copper bath) giving guests the choice of showering inside or under the stars. These airy canopied canvas suites nestle under mature trees, and each is positioned for maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views and complete privacy. The Presidential Suites have private pools, outside showers, baths and private salas, and provide ultimate luxury and are ideal for families (an extra bed can easily be accommodated) and honeymoon couples. The Family Suites consist of 2 separate suites linked by an outside lounge area - ideal for families with older children.

The open plan reception area, dining room and lounge have classic architectural lines and lofty thatched roofs. Two enormous fireplaces, comfortable sofas and armchairs, white linen tablecloths and cheerful personalised service create a haven of easy luxury. A wide copper-roofed verandah provides an informal space for al fresco dining or taking tea in the afternoon. Timber decks extend over the river shallows, perfect for fine dining under the stars, or sitting around the campfire listening to the sounds of the African night.

In the evenings guests gather at the legendary Sausage Tree Bar, unquestionably the best watering hole on the river. Built around an ancient tree, its timber deck extends right out over the swiftly flowing channel, the perfect spot for sipping an ice cold G&T while the sun sets in a fiery spectacle. Next to the bar is a long oval infinity pool set in a stunning natural timber deck, the perfect place for cooling off with a tall cocktail or sun tanning next to the river after a morning game drive.
