Lodges in Zambia
Our lodge guide enables you to discover and navigate luxurious camps and lodges in Zambia. The luxury is both physical and simple where luxury is not measured by the thread count in Egyptian cotton sheets but by the magnificence of the views and the natural space.
From the iconic Victoria Falls and Zambezi River to the teeming wildlife areas of the Kafue and Luangwa National Parks, Zambia is laden with little known but some of the finest safari camps in Africa.
Whether you are a birder, an adventure seeker or simply want to discover nature in its most splendid setting, there will be a camp to suit your tastes.
Like its neighbour Malawi, the area enjoys a lower tourism profile and less development. For the traveller searching an older or more real Africa, you have come to the right place.
Victoria Falls Lodges
To view the Victoria Falls is to experience one of the iconic sites of Africa. One runs out of superlatives to describe this wonder of nature. Named Mosi-oa tunya, "the smoke that thunders" by the local Kololo tribe, you can view the falls from various vantage points both on the Zimbabwean and Zambian sides.
The wet season from November till April produces a spray which can be seen up to 32 kilometres away whilst during the dry season, you can sit at the edge of the falls.
A truly spectacular experience.
If you take away two experiences from the 9000sq km South Luangwa National Park, they will be the memory of prolific and abundant wildlife and some of the best walking safaris in Africa.
The park is essentially woodland savannah and is host to over 60 mammal species and over 400 bird species. There are several endemic species which are protected by the natural barrier of the Luangwa valley.
The slightly harder access to this park makes the traveller’s experience more exclusive and is far removed from the mass tourist circus of several other famous reserves.
Lower Zambezi Lodges
The Lower Zambezi National Park is Zambia's newest Park and is still relatively undeveloped, a absolute state of wilderness.
The opportunity to get close to the game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels is one of the main attractions of this National park.
Opposite Zimbabwe's Mana Pools.
The Park covers an area of 4092 km², most of the wildlife is found along the valley floor and rivers edge.
With its 22400 sq kilometres in size, Kafue is one of the largest national parks in Africa. Yet it is inhabited by only a handful of lodges guaranteeing the visitor an exclusive wildlife experience. The experience is heightened by the sense of wilderness from the astounding Busanga Plains in the North-western section of the Kafue to the tree-choked terrain and the lush dambos of the south, fed by the emerald green Lunga, Lufupa and Kafue Rivers. This park sustains huge herds of diverse wildlife.
Large prides of lion, solitary leopards and cheetahs are the prime predators. There is a host of smaller carnivores from the side-striped jackal, civet, genet and various mongoose.
