Royal Zambezi Lodge Activities

chose the location of the Royal Zambezi Lodge particularly for the wide variety of activities available due to the river, the bush and the mountains. Accompanied by our qualified and enthusiastic guides with over 50 years of experience guiding in the Lower Zambezi National Park our guests can explore a range of activities from game viewing and fishing, to sunset river safaris, guided canoeing trips, and cultural village tours.
Game Drives
The best way to see and photograph the predators, large herds of elephant and buffalo is on a game drive in one of our open vehicles. You can go early in the morning, the afternoon and if you can stay up, a late night drive using spotlights!
The Lower Zambezi offers one of the finest fresh water angling experiences in the world. You can try your hand at Chessa, Nkupe, Bream, Vundu, Barbel and of course the famous Tiger fish! Our knowledgeable boatmen know the good spots.
River Safari
Cruise down the Zambezi spotting game as you go, a perfect way to end a day in the bush having sundowners on the water!
Bush Walks
Let the knowledgeable guides guide you through the bush on foot, you will focus on vegetation, birds, tracks, insects, butterflies and more.
Mountain Hiking
With the mountain backdrop to the Lower Zambezi National Park a variety of walks and climbs can be arranged with our guides – some which will put you to the test and others which will simply provide mild exercise.
Canoe Safari
Quietly drifting with no engine is surely the best way to get up close to the animals and the bird life. This gives a whole different perspective to the African safari. It’s mostly downstream so the paddling is very relaxed.
Cultural Village Tour
Visitors to Chiawa Cultural Village will be able to experience the rich heritage of the Goba community, how the Goba live in the Lower Zambezi, performance arts, Zambian cuisine and more.
The concept of DNA (doing nothing at all!) is essentially to stay in camp, spend time relaxing by the main pool, bar or in the library, making the most of the spa, or simply enjoying your suite.
