About Shackletons

Shackletons Upper Zambezi Lodge is situated in southwestern Zambia on the upper Zambezi River near the village of Mwandi, meaning a place of plenty fish.

Shackletons provides access to 130 km of the Upper Zambezi River, called God’s Highway by David Livingstone. Shackletons is open all-year round, even when the Zambezi floods its banks each year to form the Zambezi floodplains.

The lodge accommodates 12 people in thatched, en-suite chalets with private teak decks overlooking the Zambezi. The swimming pool, sundowner deck, lounge, open dining area and firepit provide guests with unparalleled vistas of the upper Zambezi River.

Shackletons is a premier venue for spin, lure and fly anglers of all levels to fish for trophy tigerfish, bream, tilapia and catfish. Shackletons is home to over 300 bird species that can be spotted at the lodge or by boat along the river banks and in the tranquil river channels.

At Shackletons you, your family and your friends will be totally spoilt by the exciting fishing, the pristine waters of the mighty upper Zambezi River, the abundant bird life, the peace and tranquillity of the lodge, the Zambian culture, and the unsurpassed friendly hospitality of the Shackletons people.
