Upstream from the roaring Victoria Falls, the Royal Zambezi Lodge sits embedded within the dense treeline, an elegant yet homely lodge that’s almost inextricable from the flourishing ecosystem surrounding it.

In fact the lodge faces the widest section of the river with lush forest on either side, giving it an exclusive relationship with the landscape yet constantly ensures that you are kept in the height of luxury. Think fine dining on the riverfront, sunset river cruises and big game drives inland and you’re only half way there.

The highlight of the lodge, the raised wooden veranda, leads directly to the pier with uninterrupted views across the water. Spend your downtime in the evening at the riverside bar sipping cocktails and sharing stories with other explorers, recline on the decking and simply enjoy the view or head inside to a roaring fire when the night is cooler.

The lodge itself is constructed with space in mind, and follows an open plan pattern to complement the expansive river on its doorstep. There are both entry-level and deluxe suites available, both of which are decorated with an authentic safari-tent aesthetic, although with the luxury experience in firmly in mind. The deluxe suites take this to the next level and further improve upon the modern explorer chic with their large indoor lounging area, outdoor copper roll-top bath and private plunge pool.
