Lodge style A royal retreat

Unveiling the Jewel of the Lower Zambezi

Nestled in the lap of Zambia's wilderness, just a stone's throw away from the stunning Lower Zambezi National Park, is the exclusive Zambezi Grande. This luxury safari camp offers the epitome of grandeur and intimacy in a setting that will make you feel like a character in an old-world expedition drama—think Ernest Hemingway meets modern elegance. It's this harmonious blend of the traditional and the contemporary that elevates your stay from merely memorable to positively transformative.

Built with an eco-conscious heart and designed with a blend of traditional African and modern aesthetics, the camp pays tribute to its rich surroundings while providing first-class comforts. Wooden walkways connect the camp to the untamed outdoors, offering you a sense of cohesion with the natural world as you move seamlessly from one exceptional experience to another. It's a place where the emerald Zambezi River complements the rustic charm of the canvas and wood, creating a milieu that captivates your senses.

Stepping into the accommodations at Zambezi Grande, you are immediately met with two exquisite options that promise serenity paired with rugged elegance—Luxury Rooms and Superior Suites. Each of these categories of lodgings isn't just a place to rest your head; it's a sanctuary designed to deepen your connection with Zambia's unmatched natural beauty.

Luxury rooms

For those who want to be cocooned in comfort while retaining a pulse on the wilderness, the luxury rooms serve as your personal haven. Limited to just five in number, these large, open-plan spaces perfectly encapsulate the camp's ethos of exclusivity. Wrap-around verandas offer you sweeping views of the grand Zambezi River, making every sunset a personal performance by Mother Nature herself. Inter-connecting rooms are also available, making it ideal for those traveling with children or larger groups. After a day out in the savanna, refresh in a well-appointed bathroom featuring an indoor shower, and indulge yourself further with a fully stocked mini bar and a tea and coffee station at your fingertips.

Superior suites

If the Luxury Rooms are an oasis, then the Superior Suites are an island of unimaginable splendor. Perched on the very banks of the Zambezi River, these suites feature large, open plans that amplify the sense of solitude and luxury. An exclusive veranda overlooking the river adds an extra layer of enchantment, ideal for private dinners or intimate conversations under the starlit African sky. The suite's bathroom elevates your stay to a new level of indulgence with a Victorian bath and a river-facing outdoor shower, blurring the lines between the indoor opulence and the majestic outdoors. As with the luxury rooms, a fully stocked mini bar and tea and coffee station are at your disposal, perfect for that spontaneous nightcap or early morning caffeine fix.

Each room type at Zambezi Grande serves as a gateway to different facets of the same luxurious experience, offering you the freedom to tailor your safari adventure to meet your own definitions of comfort and splendor.

Activities at Zambezi Grande

While the camp serves as an idyllic sanctuary, the array of safari activities is what truly elevates the Zambezi Grande experience. Choose from a variety of ways to explore the natural grandeur surrounding you. Immerse yourself in a boat safari on the legendary Zambezi River, where you'll cruise alongside crocodiles and make eye contact with hippos, all while savoring sundowners against the backdrop of a mesmerizing African sunset. If you prefer land over water, opt for our expert-led walking safaris to get an intimate look at the local flora and fauna. But for the ultimate wildlife spectacle, don't miss our open-vehicle game drives. Conducted by seasoned guides, these drives offer you the chance to spot an abundance of creatures, including many of the revered Big 5, in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Throughout your safari adventures, enjoy curated snacks and drinks, allowing you moments to pause and appreciate the pristine landscapes that surround you.

For the anglers, the camp offers an unmatched fishing experience. The Zambezi River is teeming with tiger fish and bream, offering both a thrilling challenge and a delicious reward. If it's big game you're after, jeep safaris venture deep into the heart of Lower Zambezi National Park, offering sightings of lions, leopards, and an array of antelope species, amongst other wonders.

Whether you're a seasoned safari veteran or a first-time adventurer, Zambezi Grande provides an immersive, luxurious experience that will leave you longing for your next sojourn into the wild heart of Africa.

We loved the bush dinner, the lunch in the forest and especially the river cruises for game viewing and birding. The Birdlife was incredible!
