Call us biased, but we’ve always believed that the Zambezi Grande Experience is far more than just the escape of a lifetime. It’s the promise of adventure, natural beauty, true luxury and of course, the very essence of Africa. Here’s why Zambezi Grande is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before…

Our location on the banks of the Lower Zambezi gives rise to some of Mother Nature’s finest gifts. From Big Five viewing to world-class birding, celebrated tiger fishing, a lush diversity of vegetation and more, we count ourselves lucky to call this magical place home. Take in majestic sunrises, feel yourself exhale with every crimson sunset and listen as hippos frolic in the waters of the Zambezi River. Choose between game drives, river safaris, birding expeditions, walking safaris and more, and revel in the priceless experiences that come with a trip to Zambezi Grande.

Our lodge is our haven, and yours too

Recently, we embarked on a lodge revamp that has yielded some magnificent results. This has created what we believe is one of the finest lodges in all of Zambia, if not Africa. Highlighting the best in local artisans and of course, the spoils of our unrivalled location, the new Zambezi Grande is truly in a class of its own. Whether you’d prefer our Luxury Suites or Superior Rooms, you’re sure to find every possible amenity you could ever hope for at Zambezi Grande. We aim to make your stay a comfortable and luxurious one, which is why our guests want for nothing and enjoy everything. Lose yourself in a good book on your private deck, sip on a poolside cocktail whilst you marvel at the Zambezi River or simply just relax in the tranquillity of your own suite. The choice is always yours. 

Inspired cuisine for inspired adventures

A trip to Zambezi Grande is a voyage for the palate as well. From seasonal ingredients to the signature flavours of Africa, every meal promises to be unforgettable and made from scratch, like all good dishes should be. If we don’t grow the produce we use, we source it from local farmers to ensure that every ingredient is fresh, seasonal and sustainable. We aren’t afraid to change up our menus regularly to keep things creative and most of all, delicious. If our guests have any dietary requirements or special requests, we waste no time pulling out the stops to make their stay a memorable and flavoursome one.  

We give back through our Chengetai Project

As a lodge that’s big on empowering our local community, we believe it’s important to do what we can for the people who call this region home. One example is our Chengetai Tree Project. Meaning to keep or preserve in our local Gova language, “Chengetai” allows us (in collaboration with our guests) to plant more Natal Mahogany (Trichilia Emetica) trees in our surrounding communities. These will help to: 

· Fight the ever-present threat of deforestation

· Provide a place of shade for the community to congregate 

· Act as an outdoor classroom of sorts to host environmental classes for village children
