Blessed with one of the seven natural wonders of the world and an abundance of wildlife, water and vast open spaces, Zambia offers unforgettable holidays exploring the real Africa.
Safari houses of Zambia
Zambia is widely-regarded as offering one of Africa’s top safari experiences that Africa has to offer and some of the most impressive bush accommodation. An exciting alternative that has been pioneered in Zambia, are a unique set of safari houses, ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a private and tailor-made safari experience. Take a look at our top 5 safari houses in Zambia:
Luangwa Safari House
Offering one of the most exclusive safari experiences in the South Luangwa, Luangwa Safari House is a stylish option sleeping 8 across 4 bedrooms. This private house offers the quality of guiding that you can expect from Robin Pope Safaris combined with the exclusivity of a remote location with only the local elephant family for company. The position on a permanent lagoon means that you can be assured of game viewing from the house year-round.
Regarded as the home of the walking safari, Zambia (and the Luangwa Valley in particular) is the perfect place to get out on foot. With a mixture of lodge-based walks and longer walking trails available, walking can be as big or small a part of your trip as you want, but we strongly believe nobody should go on safari in Zambia and not do at least some game viewing on foot. There’s something to suit everyone and as the focus is on observing your surroundings and seeking out the smaller aspects of the bush it will certainly not be a route march – expect to cover around 3-8km in a morning.
Sleeping up to five in one double and one triple room, Robin’s House on the banks of the Luangwa River is the perfect family option in the South Luangwa with no age restrictions. With complete privacy, a team of staff dedicated to your stay including expert guiding and a private vehicle you can be assured of a home away from home experience in one of the most impressive settings that the South Luangwa has to offer.
Chongwe River House
Situated in the spectacular Lower Zambezi valley on a quiet channel off the main river, Chongwe River House has 4 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 guests. This is the perfect spot for a family celebration or a group of friends and is particularly popular with fishermen with its own dedicated guide and fishing guide. The design is one of the most impressive of Africa’s private safari houses with a Flintstones feel to it with a strong reflection of the environment it is built in. The dedicated private staff and guide will help you to make the most of your Lower Zambezi experience and the plethora of activities on offer.
Zambia’s very own answer to an English country manor house – sleeping up to 8 guests – Shiwa Ng’andu is a flight away from the South Luangwa but feels more like a world away. Remote, but worth the effort of the intrepid traveller, there is a range of activities on offer including game drives, bush walks, birding, boating, fishing, horse riding and swimming in the hot springs. The keenest walkers can also visit David Livingstone’s Memorial.
The River Farmhouse at Waterberry Lodge
Built on the site of a colonial farmhouse directly on the banks of the Zambezi, The River Farmhouse is the ideal option for a family holiday or a group of friends visiting Victoria Falls with accommodation for up to 8 across 4 bedrooms. You will also have an exclusive-use boat with guide and a riverside pool, this is the perfect place to relax after an exciting safari in Zambia’s outstanding national parks.
