Royal Zambezi Lodge
Royal Zambezi Lodge, a spacious but intimate privately owned lodge, situated in Zambia on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River just minutes from the Lower Zambezi National Park and directly opposite Zimbabwe’s famous Mana Pools World Heritage Site. Royal offers the ultimate in luxury and cuisine while enjoying and participating closely in the sights and sounds of the African wilderness.
Royal Zambezi Lodge was designed by people with a deep interest in Africa, its heritage and its wildlife. Our vision incorporates a need to let people from throughout the world enjoy the best that Africa has to offer without compromising comfort and well being.
Our property extends over 200 hectares of the Chiawa Game Management Area on the northern bank of the Zambezi River with its own 3.5 kms of unspoiled river frontage and the scenic mountain backdrop of the valley escarpment. Royal is directly opposite the World Heritage Site, Mana Pools in Zimbabwe and minutes from the Lower Zambezi National Park.
As the setting of the lodge is so special and unique we have kept the lodge in keeping with the bush while still providing you 5 Star accommodation. The lodge finds the perfect balance between contemporary, simplistic style and extreme comfort offering a completely unspoiled wilderness experience.
With lions roaring in the distance and hippos snorting nearby, the luxurious thatched suites, elegant design and gourmet cuisine of Royal Zambezi Lodge provide a perfect base from which to explore this wild and beautiful area. There are no fences around the lodge and we have regular guests including elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, leopard and many types of birds coming to visit. We also have a few residents who I am sure you will meet – like Yale the elephant, Dave the crocodile and Jonathan the giant kingfisher!
We hope you will come and enjoy the Royal experience! Take a look around.
Royal provides the perfect romantic setting for honeymoon couples, while its customised family suite works perfectly for family holidays. There is lots of space for all to enjoy their unique stay. The central building and individual private suites are designed to let nature play a leading role in ensuring the relaxed pace and magical experiences are enjoyed by guests.
The 15 airy canopied canvas tents nestle under mature trees, and each is positioned for maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views and complete privacy. The tents are impeccably finished with a contemporary, understated elegance. Natural tones, luxurious textures and comfortable armchairs create a secluded retreat. Extra length sprung mattresses with pure cotton linen and fine down pillows ensure a perfect night’s rest.
We chose the location of the Royal Zambezi Lodge particularly for the wide variety of activities available due to the river, the bush and the mountains. Accompanied by our qualified and enthusiastic guides with over 50 years of experience guiding in the Lower Zambezi National Park our guests can explore a range of activities from game viewing and fishing, to sunset river safaris, guided canoeing trips, and cultural village tours.
The Royal Zambezi Bush Spa has been inspired by the natural beauty surrounding the lodge and is one Zambia’s only bush spa's. Its minimalist design exudes an air of complete balance, peace and tranquility offering you the ultimate refuge to restore the mind, body and spirit.
