Scheduled to open in mid 2014, Zambezi Sands is a 45-minute road transfer, or 60-minute river transfer, downriver from the vibrant town of Victoria Falls. Zambezi Sands provides a wealth of opportunities for drives and walks in the Zambezi National Park with experienced guides, while the Zambezi River itself invites exploration by inflatable canoe or motorised launch. However, relaxing in the private splash pool on your deck overlooking the Zambezi is just as enjoyable.
Elephant can be found loitering on the mainland or in the river, while hippo, waterbuck and bushbuck frequent the reed banks and islands. Lion can often be heard calling at night and the birdlife is prolific - African finfoot, African skimmer, pratincoles, and Pel’s fishing owl all occur here.
The main lodge and 8 Bedouin style luxury tents are built on raised platforms with river views. Well spaced out along the banks of the Zambezi River, each tent features a lounge area, additional outdoor shower, and a private deck with splash pool overlooking the river.
In-house activities include game drives, game walks, fishing, canoeing, island picnics and sunset cruises. In town, a smorgasbord of options include a guided tour of the Falls, river cruises, white water rafting, bungee jumping – or maybe just some relaxed souvenir shopping.
