Zambezi Sands River Camp

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Perched along a grassy river bank in Zambezi National Park, the rustic Zambezi Sands River Camp is the perfect base to rest in between spotting wildlife and exploring Victoria Falls. With an expansive winding river right outside your tent, we love the myriad of water-based activities on offer here. Indeed it is the only camp to include unlimited canoeing.

With only ten Bedouin style tents altogether, your stay here will be personalised and intimate. Each tent offers total privacy and spectacular views of the tranquil river, as well as a gorgeous private deck with its own small splash pool. The canvas walls and ceilings create a traditional safari feel, yet the floor-to-ceiling glass doors let the sunlight pour in and add a touch of luxury.

Magnificent elephants regularly roam close by and near the river, whilst gigantic hippos, waterbuck and bushbuck bask along the bank. There’s an abundance of incredible birdlife too, whilst the roar of a lion pride will be a lullaby as you sleep.

Our favourite part of the camp is the activities included during your stay. From leisurely sunset cruises and canoe safaris, to fishing in the river and exploring the park on foot, there are plenty of opportunities to spot incredible wildlife. You can even take an incredible heli flip (at extra cost). Afterwards, stroll along to the raised main area, fit with a cosy lounge area, and a luxuriously decorated dining area.
