Zambezi Sands

Sophistication and relaxation await you in this peaceful riverside setting. Deep in the heart of the Zambezi National Park, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town, but close enough to visit as and when you wish: the best of both worlds.

A stay at Zambezi Sands is as exciting as it is relaxing, all wrapped up with attentive service and of course great food, which we’ll get to later.

There’s a good choice of activities. Being in the Zambezi National Park, and on the banks for the Zambezi River, means you can choose from game drives, guided walks, bush breakfasts, fishing for tigerfish (or bream for that matter), motorboat cruises and riding the waters in stable inflatable canoes. This range of activities makes for varied game viewing – it never gets boring. If you want an adrenalin rush, head to Victoria Falls town and book one of the many activities on offer there.

The river is the life sustaining force of the area, and the lodge makes the most of this. The main area and the rooms are all built on raised decks at the river’s edge, so you’re always a stone’s throw from the water.

Meals are Zambezi Sands are excellent. Start the day with a continental breakfast and eggs cooked to order or you can have pancakes and a full English brekky. Enjoy it out on the terrace under the morning sun as you watch the river flow by. Lunch is usually something light but filling and the evening will begin with cocktails and canapes followed by a delicious three course dinner. One thing is for certain, you won’t go hungry at Zambezi Sands!
