Before the Lower Zambezi was declared a national park or a UNESCO Heritage Site, it was a private sanctuary of Zambia’s then President: a protected haven for the wild acacia forest and herds of elephants. In June, Lower Zambezi National Park welcomed the Lolebezi Safari Lodge, the latest addition to African Bush Camps’ Zambia portfolio. With 1 km of private river frontage along the Zambezi, this enviable location also serves as a de facto wildlife sanctuary. An ideal destination for groups and families, the six suite accommodations have thatched roofs and private plunge pools, and showcase locally sourced materials and contemporary African design. The property also features an on-site spa and yoga deck.
Solar power and a water-treatment system sustainably manage the power and water supplies, and prevent river pollution. The lodge offers game drives (except during the rainy season from December to March), canoe trips, and walking safaris where you’ll see hippos, leopards, lions, and water buffalo, and perhaps hear Africa’s signature call, the shrill of the fish eagle.
