Royal Zambezi Lodge is an intimate family-owned property situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, on the edge of the unique Lower Zambezi National Park and directly opposite Mana Pools in Zimbabwe.

The design of Royal Zambezi Lodge allows nature and the environment to play a leading role in ensuring the relaxed pace and magical experience enjoyed by guests. There are 10 Classic Suites and four Deluxe Suites at Royal Zambezi Lodge. The entry-level Classic Suites stand alone and are complete with shady verandahs and en-suite baths with flush toilets and large showers. The large canvas tents nestle under mature trees and are all positioned for the maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views and complete privacy. Natural tones, luxurious textures and comfortable armchairs create the perfect retreat after a morning game drive while extra-length sprung mattresses with pure cotton linen and feather pillows ensure a blissful night's sleep.

The Deluxe Suites are the epitome of the luxury safari experience. Two of the suites offer the same tented interior as the Classic Suites whilst also offering an outdoor bath, shower and plunge pool. A further two Deluxe Suites push luxury to an even higher level. These suites are not tented and due to a larger surface area they also have an indoor lounging area. They offer a sala overlooking the river in addition to a shower and copper roll-top bath, sunloungers and private plunge pools.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast overlooking the Lower Zambezi River where our team of expert chefs will prepare dishes to order, or simply whizz up a healthy smoothie. Lunch comes as gourmet picnics or as full outdoor buffets in the park. Dinner is served at private tables under the stars or by a roaring fire on a cooler night. Alternatively guests may relax in their rooms and have dinner brought to them on their private deck.

The location for Royal Zambezi Lodge was chosen particularly for the wide variety of activities available including game viewing, fishing, fly fishing, sunset river cruises, professionally guided canoeing trips, open vehicle guided drives, night drives, walking safaris, birding safaris and photographic safaris.

Welcome to Mvuu Lodge  
There’s tranquillity in the African Bush that creeps up unexpectedly and nestles in your soul. Maybe it is because nature is so close - the wildlife and the birds, the wind in the trees- or maybe it’s just Africa and its rhythms.   Tucked away in Zambia, along the meandering banks of the mighty Zambezi River, you will find Mvuu Lodge, “The Place of the Hippo”. We are perfectly situated 18 km from the Lower Zambezi National Park, in the Chiawa Game Management Area and right opposite Mana Pools.  We are privileged to be based in this pristine part of Zambia and we are delighted to share this solitude and scenic beauty with our guests.   Our luxury safari tents will evoke the romantic side of you while our self-catering tents and camping sites will offer you nature at its undisturbed best. Wild animals roam casually through our premises providing you with a truly unforgettable experience.   Dinner is served outdoors in the boma or on the viewing deck, where the roaring fire and nocturnal calls of the wild create the perfect, relaxing end to an exhilarating day.    We invite you to come and indulge in a true African experience and rejuvenate your soul.

Africa has a spellbinding effect on most first time travellers. Many who have grown up on this continent will tell you that Africa will stay in their blood forever, no matter where they might end up in the world - it is home. In the heart of the African subcontinent lies a destination known as the real Africa. This is Zambia, where you will find remote wilderness areas, breathtaking scenery, wildlife in abundance, and a kind-hearted people. There, in the midst of the unspoilt African bush on the northern bank of the Zambezi River, directly opposite Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools World Heritage Site, you will discover Baines’ River Camp.

This true Colonial-style safari lodge, named after the famous artist and explorer Thomas Baines, offers a wide variety of activities in and around the Lower Zambezi National Park, including specialized photographic workshops, fly-fishing clinics, elephant studies and birding weeks, each hosted by internationally renowned expert guides who are passionate about the African bush and their subject.

You will feel at home from the moment you arrive at Baines' River Camp. This luxurious and intimate safari lodge is set amid Tamarind and Jackalberry trees and can accommodate up to 20 guests. You can choose between King and Twin Suites and our private two-bedroom Baines Cottage is ideal for young families. On arrival, a friendly face awaits you in the Selous Bar with a refreshing drink before you unpack and get ready for your first activity. Or you may prefer to just take in the scenery and settle down with your binoculars on our main verandah to gaze over the Zambezi, Africa's fourth largest river.

For those wanting a premier Lower Zambezi safari in a small camp with all comforts and a fabulous guiding team, inside the national park, look no further than Old Mondoro.

Appropriately constructed of canvas and natural materials, Old Mondoro has an open and adventurous feel, providing a perfect retreat after a day filled with excitement in the bush and yet where much of the action will happen right in front of you.
