Imvelo Safari Lodges will open the Zambezi Sands on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia, this August.
The new 16-bed tented lodge is upstream from Victoria Falls within the western part of the Zambezi National Park. It offers eight king or twin double luxury tents, built on raised wooden platforms at the water’s edge. Each has its own private splash pool. A four-bed family suite will also be constructed in early 2015.
The main camp consists of a dining room, lounge and bar, with a shaded outdoor deck for alfresco dining experiences looking out over the river.
Zambezi Sands offers a combination of wildlife and river-based activities, including game drives, game walks, canoeing and fishing, as well as a guided tour of the Victoria Falls, shopping trips, a sunset cruise among the islands and a village visit and school tour. Other activities can be arranged on request.
Transfers from Victoria Falls are either by boat up the Zambezi River (approximately 40 minutes) or by vehicle (45 minutes through the forest).
