Every area of this airy, open-plan room provides stunning views of the Zambezi River. The king-size bed is equipped with a big, canopy-covered mosquito net, which is accompanied by lounging spaces and a private balcony with private dining options.
The Bird House: Sweeping views over the Zambezi are a feature of every house. Great attention has been paid to the bathroom areas, and a special feature is the huge open-air sunken bath in every room, where you can both unwind to the serenades of an African evening. A private balcony overlooks the waters of the mighty Zambezi, complete with sun loungers and a private infinity plunge pool; the Bird House is perfect for those on a romantic safari getaway.
