1 of 1

Standard Twin/Double Tent(s)

Nine spacious, en-suite safari-style tents all have expansive decks for wildlife spotting. Elevated wooden walkways weave between the guest tents and further limit our footprint in this pristine area.

This peaceful sanctuary showcases quintessentially Zambian style and charm, as well as makes the most of the beautiful, natural spaces around the camp. The views overlooking the Zambezi are mesmerising.

Fitted with canvas walls in muted tones, the tents offer a spacious interior, with the beds adorned with flowing, drawback mosquito nets. Locally designed light fittings enhance the ambience, while block-out curtains guarantee peaceful rest.

Contemporary furnishings add a modern touch, interspersed with nostalgic printed fabric artworks of Victoria Falls. The artworks – originally painted by artist Thomas Baines, who accompanied David Livingstone to the Zambezi in 1858 – bring the drama of the majestic Falls indoors. A pod swing floats above each private deck, allowing guests time out to immerse themselves in the surrounding wilderness.
