Lower Zambezi Lodge

Our premium self-catering lodge owned and operated by Lower Zambezi Safaris, has seven individually designed chalets on the banks of the Zambezi, with unparalleled views of the majestic river.

The chalets are built from locally sourced materials. The stones are from the Msaku and Nyamangwe rivers, and the timber and grass from nearby villages. They are tastefully furnished in a comfortable, natural style, each with its own bathroom and a solar-heated shower. Utmost care has been taken to ensure the lodge is in harmony with its surroundings, and that nothing distracts from the sights and sounds of the river and the bush. 

Amenities include a “boma” (common area), with kitchen and spacious dining facilities, as well as 2 fireplaces. Concerted efforts are also being made to ensure the lodge is as eco-friendly as possible.

Our stay at the lodge was absolutely fantastic! We couldn’t have been more pleased. The chalets are incredible, the view is something special and the service was impeccable. We even had elephants and hippos roaming around one of the nights. Staff were beyond friendly and made us feel at home!”
