Lower Zambezi Accommodation

The Lower Zambezi has abundant excellent lodges and camps. Beautifully crafted and designed with guest comfort a priority, the camps are like no other. What makes the camps so great are the safari game viewing experiences. 

Does life get better than when fishing on the Lower Zambezi, enjoying canapés and an iced cold beverage? Floating past elephants and hippos on the river bank whilst waiting for ‘the bite’. Perhaps, the traditional game drive? Sitting in the comfort of a safari vehicle, a highly knowledgeable guide teaching you the ways of the animal kingdom as you spot game and birdlife; stopping for a sundowner, drink in hand, nature as your soundtrack. Magic.

For an even more relaxing experience, canoe at your leisure along the Zambezi River, taking in the awe-inspiring scenery and gently steering between animals.

The accommodation options in the Lower Zambezi are exceptional. Each camp has its own style and personality and provides everything you want from a safari experience and more. Explore the accommodation options below.
