I was at the Royal Zambezi Lodge in late August 2014. The hotel stay far exceeded my expectations. The staff was so friendly, attentive and knowledgeable! Nat (GM) was great. Safari guides Lawrence, Chris, Hastings, and Ewen knew the lay of the land. How they were able to find their way back to the lodge during the night drives was... More

i had the pleasure of staying at the Royal Zambezi Lodge just last week. it was another world. The accommodations were fabulous, comfortable, chic and all in a tent-like setting. The staff was attentive and friendly. The locals ie herd of elephants, baboons and hippos made the safari experience real and right at my porch of my guest house. Natalie.... More

I stayed here as part of an Odyssey Unlimited tour group. The food was amazingly fresh, considering the remote location, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Loved the outdoor showers and plunge pools, and eating meals out on the veranda. Best part is that elephants just coming roaming thru the lodge whenever they please. Went on several early morning...

I don't even know where to start. This was a perfect finale to 2 wonderful weeks exploring southern Africa with our Odyssey/Smithsonian tour group. After excellent game viewing or choosing between a plethora of enjoyable activities at the national park, this was really the perfect place to return to before our next adventure. The accommodations were fantastic (we had the... More

Located right on the edge of the Zambezi river, the Royal Zambezi lodge was everything and more i had hoped it would be.

A beautiful facility so close to nature and yet so well appointed. Offered 5 different activities, each with knowledgeable and personable guides. The area is beautiful. We had elephants come into the lodge area, but felt completely safe and enjoyed their visit. The food was delicious too. Kay B

A small chugging boat expertly guided us through curious Hippos and menacing Crocks along the majestic Zambezi river to our Safari destination The Royal Zambezi Lodge. En route we passed the manicured lawns of a private Lodge holiday home of Prince Harry's ex girlfriends family and for him what must have been truly a retreat far from two legged snappers.... More

Staying at the Royal Zambezi Lodge was everything you could hope for on an african holiday. The accommodation was excellent and it looked over the Zambezi river which often saw elephants wading in the water. Plenty of activities available to witness the animals in their natural environment - saw lots of lions, impala, crocodiles, buffalo, baboons, hippopotamus. The staff were... More

From the relaxed but efficient transfer from the airstrip our group of 20+ enjoyed a great blend of meetings, food and activities (safari, fishing, island dinner and lunch by the river in the park). We were demanding and the staff moved with us...thanks to Nat, Keegs and Kolo. My last day was sitting on my porch watching an elephant munch... More
