Each suite has an en-suite bathroom with free-standing bath, double vanities, indoor and outdoor shower and open onto a deck with a private plunge pool. In between game drives, relax in the comfortable public lounge with its spacious patio or at the main pool overlooking the lush gardens and waterhole.

Breakfasts, lunches and candle-lit dinners are served on the deck of the main lodge. On balmy nights, sumptuous barbecues are enjoyed under the stars round a blazing fire in the open-air ‘boma.’ Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles and guided bush walks, conducted by experienced rangers.

3. The River Club

Steeped in history, the restored 1940s main building, known as the Zambezi House, has a comfortable lounge with fireplace and a well stocked library. While most meals are served outside on the terrace or by the poolside, the large dining room can seat all guests in one sitting at the impressively long teak dining table. The River Club is a place to relax. There are no early wake-up calls and guests are encouraged to lie in and soak up their surroundings.
