Tents I-VI

Tents I-VI

These 6 tents look directly onto the Zambezi River, are well shaded, with the bathrooms in the rear of the tents.

Tents VII-IX

Tents VII-IX

These are angled looking out over the Chowe River floodplain but also with views of the Zambezi.
The layout of these tents differ from TI-VI in that the bathrooms are on the side rather than at the rear of the room; they are also the furthest and most private tents although share the same level of lux and features as TI-VI.
