AN EMBRACING NATURE EXPERIENCE
The site was chosen for its magnificent forest canopy and enormous termite mound resting gently alongside the lounge. The golden green light pours through the trees in the early morning and late afternoon. The fire pit deck is suspended over the Zambezi river and afternoons can be spent watching the reflection of the sunset over the Zambezi National Park as animals come down to drink.
Game drives are offered through this scenically beautiful national park. Start your day by gliding across the Zambezi River to the mainland where your safari vehicle will be waiting to take you on an early morning game drive in the Zambezi National Park – which is home to large herds of elephant, buffalo, lion, hyena, giraffe and numerous antelope species. The game drives are approximately 3 to 4 hours and include a refreshment stop.FIND OUT MORE

Birdlife is prolific, especially along the riverfront, including spoonbills, ibis and many types of ducks and waterfowl. Migrant bee-eaters are seen in summer.
