Zambezi Sands River Camp Reviews
“Absolutely amazing from the minute we drove in the camp to the second we left the camp. The staff and facilites are excellent and nothing was a problem. The food was wonderful and the kitchen team catered for all tastes. Animal viewing was fantastic and very varied – something different each day. This was definitely one of the best camps for the animal and bush experience we encountered and there was ample opportunity to engage in extra activities. The cabins were amazing especially the hot (always hot) outdoor showers. We loved it absolutely and can’t wait to go back.” –Anthea R
“Beautiful, relaxed, unique camp with expert guides and fabulous food. 7 of us filled the cabins, which are furnished well, lovely linens etc and we were treated like royalty. River out front is ful of chatting hippos and the elephants wander through camp often. I loved our time here and would go back again.” –JEO8870
“The scenery in the Lower Zambezi was also more lush than expected and the game viewing plentiful with lots of new elephant calves and a variety of birds to add to the experience. Taking the boat on the Zambezi to have our sundowners while watching the Carmine bee eaters nest and crocs slip into the water was magical and something we will never forget. The food was brilliant too, sometimes having to be delivered by landrover to avoid the elephants in camp who were waiting to get to the winter nut trees.-Willy0z
