Safari Lodges in Zambia

Tongabezi is literally heaven on earth; this amazing luxury safari lodge sits on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, which flows down into the majestic Victoria Falls.

The lodge is owner run and as such has such a welcoming atmosphere about it that you will be sure to never want to leave.

This luxury lodge has houses, which are enormous spoiling suites with river views, or cottages which also have river views and often have hippos grazing on the lawns outside.

Luangwa River Lodge

This lodge is at its best between April and June when there are fewer people in this area of the South Luangwa – it is small, intimate and very luxurious and you will be eating gourmet food, and will probably end up with a leopard relaxing outside your room.

The game viewing in this section is unreal and this intimate little lodge does it huge justice with excellent guides who know the area like the back of their hands.

Tena Tena is one of the jewels of the luxury safari industry and it is no surprise that it appears under this list of Zambia’s top luxury safari lodges and camps.

This luxury camp is located in its own private conservancy which has prime South Luangwa wildlife viewing opportunities within it – so good is the game viewing from this luxury camp that the BBC come and film here.

The camp has wonderful views of the Luangwa River which when dry attract all kinds of wildlife.

Chindeni Bush Camp

Chindeni is one of the most remote locations of all of the South Luangwa – here you will not see another soul but can enjoy lazy days in this luxury Zambia lodge, watching the lagoon from your hammock, with views of the purple Chindeni Mountains in the distance.

Nothing can compare the feeling of remoteness one gets at this luxury lodge and it’s something one can never take for granted.

Zungulila is even more remote than Chindeni – taken on exclusive use this is certainly one of Zambia’s most luxurious and exclusive lodges, with a feeling of space that is virtually unrivalled in all of Africa.

It is one of Africa’s top private safari camps and certainly one of Zambia’s most luxurious and sought after lodges.

Sausage Tree Camp

This luxury safari camp in Zambia’s wild Lower Zambezi will give you one of the best luxury lodge or camp experiences one could hope to have. The vast tents have white roofs to keep the heat out or in and wonderful views of the Zambezi with its elephant grass islands.

Elephants will often use the path by your luxury tent to get down into the river. Hippos paddle happily in front of the lodge and the swimming pool is the perfect place to relax. Here you can while away the hours in between extremely exciting game drives.

Anabezi is wonderfully luxurious and this lodge comes with suites all complete with private plunge pools and views of a small plain below, which is often covered with wildlife.

The wooden walkways which connect each suite keep you safe from the big game which is often seen around the property.

Here game drives from this luxury Zambia lodge will take you into areas with abundant birdlife and tonnes and tonnes of wildlife – all of which is just for your eyes, and no one else.

Royal Zambezi lodge offers the ultimate in comfort & luxury, with unrivalled game viewing accompanied by professional guides, a luxury spa and world-class fishing, fly fishing and tiger fishing on the Zambezi.

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

Royal Zambezi Lodge has classic suites, deluxe suites and presidential suites. The entry level Classic Suites stand alone and are complete with shady verandas 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. The tents are impeccably furnished with a contemporary, understated elegance.

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 and 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.

Outdoors they offer a sala overlooking the river in addition to a shower and copper roll-top bath, sun-loungers and private plunge pool.

The Presidential suites are extremely spoiling with pools, copper baths, outdoor showers, salas and day beds – heaven!
