This was a beautiful lodge that offered wonderful safari day/evening trips. Good staff and extra security due to animals on site. The food was good but I didn't care for their version of brunch. The rooms were very nice and they provided hot water bottles at the end of the evening for warmth or sore muscles. Nice to just sit... More

Christmas at Royal Zambezi was a very special experience for us! Beautiful lodges, excellent food, friendly cheerful staff and the whole team looked after us so well. Wonderful activities - game drives in the national park, and into the foothills of the Zambezi escarpment, canoeing up a peaceful inlet of that magnificent river, boat cruises, fishing, and sundowners on islands...

The lodge is in a simply stunning location on the banks of the Zambezi and one never tires of the view. The guided activities really get you more involved in the natural surroundings, although nature is everywhere with elephants wandering through camp! The lodge itself is stunning, every detail has been thought of, rooms are beautifully appointed, and outside showers... More

There are very few words I can use to describe just how amazing this place is!!! The location is absolutely beautiful and I can’t think of anything more pleasant than starting your day by having breakfast while watching the elephants and hippos frolic in the river just beyond the Jetty! The room was well beyond our expectations, they are extremely... More

This was our last stop on a three week trip in Africa. It's an incredibly beautiful setting with elephants, hippos, baboons and birds greeting u each day. The tents are pure luxury and we stayed in one with a plunge pool and outdoor shower. Worth the upgrade especially during the hot weather. The food was fantastic and the staff could... More

We visited for my cousins wedding and although we stayed in a different establishment, we spent a lot of time at the Royal Zambezi Lodge. The wedding was held here and the organisation was just fabulous. Every possible variation was catered for, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely come again!
