Stay at Zambezi Sands

Zambezi Sands River Camp is situated within the western part of the Zambezi National Park along the banks of the mighty Zambezi River upstream from Victoria Falls. 45 minutes by road or by river cruise from the Falls, the many channels and islands in this part of the river are perfect for canoe and walking explorations. The camp is made up of 8 luxury tents, each facing the river with private decks and plunge pools.

At camp, the habitat provides a wealth of opportunities for drives and walks with the camp’s experienced guides, while the Zambezi River itself invites exploration by inflatable canoe or motorised launch.

However, relaxing in your private splash pool on your deck overlooking the Zambezi is also just as enjoyable. Elephants can be found loitering on the mainland or in the river, while hippo, waterbuck and bushbuck frequent the reed banks and islands. Lions can be heard calling at night and the birdlife is prolific – African finfoot, African skimmer, pratincoles and Pel fishing owl all live around here.

Jen & George

We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
