I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights in Feb 2014 with some friends - so my review is a little late but I haven't been able to stop thinking about this beautiful lodge in the Lower Zambezi - it is simply incredible! The lodge is situated on one of the most beautiful spots overlooking the mighty Zambezi... More

This was our third and final stop on an Odyssey safari tour and, by far, our favorite. The remote location was outstanding and provided us w/ the best game views of our trip. The staff was exceptional and provided outstanding one-on-one personal service. We were big fans of the canoe trip, which was so very relaxing and truly made us... More

This lodge is in the middle of nowhere--on a beautiful river. It is the most peaceful place I have ever been in my life. Very scenic, with lots of wildlife. It is rustic, but with good food and excellent amenities. There is a spa. The activities available are varied, and include canoeing, hiking, boat rides on the river at sunset,... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the RZL on our honeymoon, and our stay there exceeded our very high expectations. The accommodations were luxurious and the food was fantastic, but it was really the service and attention that we received that made our stay there so incredible. The staff thought of the most wonderful details - like a... More

Royal Zambezi Lodge was the highlight of our African experience. The setting on the Zambezi river was luxurious as well as very comfortable. The staff was most accommodating meeting our every need. In addition to safaris, there was canoeing, fishing, sundowners, guided nature walks and an outstanding masseuse. The lodge was most attractive; very open and appropriately African in atmosphere....

This lodge is amazing. The beauty of being on a safari lodge on the water is the choice of fishing, canoeing and dining on sandbanks in addition to standard game drives, game walks and sundowners. The grounds are wild and exclusive, where the number of safari vehicles does not ever exceed the volume of wildlife to observe. Oh, yes. And... More

Myself and my husband were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful lodge during our trip to Zambia. From the moment we arrived to the day we left everything was perfect. We have travelled extensively around Asia, Europe, US and Australia and stayed in many hotels. The Royal Zambezi Lodge has something special and a magical feel that you can't... More

We have stayed in several remote luxury lodges in Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe and the Royal Zambezi Lodge was the best. When the time came to leave, I wanted to stay! The room was wonderful, service great and the food was excellent. We had a room at the end of the path with our own pool and wound up sharing... More
