Royal Zambezi Lodge

Operates in:


Royal Zambezi Lodge, a 15-room lodge, was designed by a family with in-depth knowledge & love of Africa, its heritage, and wildlife.
Set against the mountain backdrop of the Zambezi Valley, our story starts on 3.5 km of unspoiled river frontage on the Zambezi River. Situated a short distance from the Lower Zambezi National Park by boat or vehicle & only a 5-minute drive from the private all-weather Royal Airstrip.
The accommodation has been created to enhance the lodge’s natural setting while taking advantage of its prime positioning on the Zambezi River, ensuring it captures every glimmer of sunrise & wildlife from your suite. Royal offers the perfect combination of contemporary, simplistic style & ultimate comfort while providing a pure wilderness experience.
Offering a combination of land & water-based encounters, the Lower Zambezi is famous for big game, from elephants, buffalo, lions, leopards, wild dogs, large pods of hippos, the legendary tiger fish, African fish eagle, & many other creatures, big and small. In addition, guests will enjoy private guided activities ranging from game drives to canoeing, walking safaris, angling, boat cruises, & community & conservation.
The entire area is a pure wilderness sanctuary with Mana Pools National Park directly opposite Royal Zambezi Lodge & stretching eastwards for 50 kilometres along the Zambezi shoreline.
We offer the discerning traveller a front-row seat at these unique wilderness experiences while welcoming guests ‘home’ to the luxury tented & thatched lodges overlooking the Zambezi River. We invite families with children of all ages, are solo traveller friendly with no single room supplement & stay open throughout the year, showcasing the different seasons in Zambia.
A stay with Royal will offer an enduring love of Africa & leave one yearning to return to a place that has stolen a piece of your heart. An exciting African adventure awaits in Zambia, & we look forward to welcoming guests to the Royal family.
