About Royal Zambezi Lodge

Situated on the border of the Lower Zambezi National Park, Royal Zambezi Lodge stretches over 200 hectares of the Chiawa Game Management Area offering a spectacular backdrop to a lavish getaway.

The simple elegance of the thatched suites, the tantalising gourmet cuisine, and the freedom offered by unfenced accommodation offset the complex beauty of Zambia. This 5-star lodge boasts kilometres of unspoiled river views as well as a resplendent mountain backdrop.

Royal Zambezi Lodge is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the multitude of wildlife – elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, and leopard making regular appearances. And bird watchers will be in their element with The Lower Zambezi National Park on their doorstep – the area is in fact labelled as an Important Bird Area.
