Zambezi Sands River Camp is nestled in an exclusive location on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, one hour by road from Victoria Falls (45 minutes of which is a game drive in Zambezi National Park). This tented lodge is situated within the western area of the Zambezi National Park, upstream of the Victoria Falls. Zambezi Sands is unique in that it features not only water based activities and some glorious wildlife and scenery, but is also close to the Victoria Falls with its’ myriad activities. Zambezi Sands River Camp is fully under canvas with raised wood decking linking the accommodation and the main hospitality area. At the Zambezi Sands River Camp, you will have the perfect opportunity to view wild game and take amazing pictures.  The game viewing is good with regular sightings of elephant, buffalo and lion.   Zambezi Sands is ideal for clients who want to combine a mini safari with seeing the magnificent Victoria Falls.

Luxury Tents

The tented camp has 8 Bedouin style luxury tents which are well spaced out along the banks of the river. Each tent has a lounge area, stocked mini-bar, en suite bathroom, outdoor shower, private splash pool and electricity run by diesel/solar generator. Each of them is equipped with mosquito nets, electronic safe, ceiling fans, hair dryer, robes and laundry facility.


The main tented camp has a sitting/dining area and bar under canvas. This opens out onto multi-level wooden decks which make the most of its stunning setting right on the mighty river. All the meals are professionally prepared by the kitchen team.
