Zambezi Sands is a luxury Safari Camp nestled in the heart of the Zambezi National Park with glorious panoramas of the Zambezi River only 1 hour from Victoria Falls
This luxury safari camp is only 1 hours’ drive from Victoria Falls in the beautiful and remote western end of the Zambezi National Park. The game viewing is good with regular sightings of elephant, buffalo and lion but the animal concentrations are not quite on par with safari giants such as Hwange National Park, Mana Pools or Chobe National Park. However this area does come with its own special and unique feel - the main focus being the Zambezi River with its exquisite clear waters and endless channels. The birdlife along the quiet shores of this stretch of river is second to none, and can boast some very rare species indeed.
The plush main lounge/dining area and each of the eight tents are built on raised wooden platforms, perfectly placed to overlook the Zambezi River in all its glory - the views are quite spectacular. During high water season the river actually flows under your private veranda.
The bedrooms are enormous Bedouin Style tents and are truly lovely and luxurious with each tent having its own en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower. Relax and enjoy the view from the huge veranda or your own private splash pool. The boardwalks that interlink each tent with the main dining area and bar offer protection from wandering hippos who often spend at least part of the night feeding in and around the camp.
Zambezi Sands offer a wide range of activities which include game drives, along the river and inland. Game walks with an experienced Professional Guide, river boat cruises (both sunset and day cruises). Canoeing is one of the unique activities on offer and gives you the opportunity to experience the beauty of the Zambezi river as you follow the gentle current downstream, drifting quietly through beautiful channels, passing prolific birdlife and relaxed animals alike. Daytrips into Victoria Falls are also available.
Zambezi Sands is ideal for clients who want to combine a mini safari with seeing the largest waterfall in the world - the magnificent Victoria Falls. For guests who want to sample the multiple Victoria Falls activities on offer then we would suggest rather spending a night or two in town before or after, as commuting to and from this camp is a bit arduous. However if you just want to spend a day in Victoria Falls to see the Falls and maybe do a couple other activities followed by a few relaxing days in a luxury safari camp with good game viewing and wonderful scenery – we can’t recommend Zambezi Sands highly enough.
For those wanting longer safari packages, excellent options are available from these camps owners who also operate camps within Hwange National Park and the Victoria Falls area. Contact us so that we can put together an itinerary that suits your exact needs.
