Zambezi Sands River Camp - Imvelo Safari Lodges

Victoria Falls

ZAMBEZI SANDS RIVER CAMP is a 20 bed tented lodge situated on the banks of the Zambezi river, within the western part of the Zambezi National Park, about 20km (by road) upstream from Victoria Falls.

Ten luxury tented suites (3 doubles and 7 twins) are built into the bush on raised wooden platforms at the water’s edge.    Each has its own private splash pool.  Units 3 and 4 have an interleading walkway between them and are ideal as a family unit.

The centrally-located main camp consists of a dining room, lounge and bar, with a shaded outdoor deck for alfresco dining experiences looking out over the river.

Zambezi Sands offers a wonderful combination of wildlife and river-based activities, whilst being conveniently close to the attractions of Victoria Falls itself.  On offer are game drives, game walks, canoeing and fishing, as well as tours of the Victoria Falls, shopping trips, a sunset cruise among the islands and a village visit and school tour.  Other Victoria Falls activities can be arranged on request.

Transfers from Victoria Falls are by vehicle (1.5 hours along the Zambezi River, or 45 mins through the forest).

Imvelo Safari Lodges play a huge role in support of the local communities in the area including:
• Employing local staff
• Supporting local Primary and Secondary Schools and Clinics
• Assisting with drilling wells for clean water supplies
• Providing dental health care in the communities adjacent to Hwange National Park and Victoria Falls through an annual mobile Dental Safari,
• Distributing maize-seed and providing feeding programmes in times of drought. 
• All this has a tremendous conservation spin off to the  area and wildlife as there is a direct linkage between the tourism benefits to local communities and wildlife conservation.

Derek & Sarah Solomon, South Africa 10 October 2017
What a fabulous destination. Together with our guest from the USA we had am amazing time at the camp both on the river and out driving. We had several target species of birds to look for and John Laing went out of his way to find them for us. In addition we tested an exciting new sound recording system while on the river listening to underwater communication in hippos under rather difficult conditions but thanks to John's assistance we did manage some recording. The camp staff were amazing and the accommodation super luxurious. We couldn't have asked for more and look forward to going back. It is a superb destination for birders which is our market. Dear Derek and Sarah, Thank you for the fabulous feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed our luxurious camp right on the Zambezi River. It is the perfect spot to relax after being on safari! Thank you for the lovely comments about John, he is so knowledgeable and eager to share this with our valued guests. We will certainly pass on your kind words to him. Thank you for choosing Zambezi Sands and we hope to welcome you and your guests back one day again! All the very best from the whole Imvelo team! Kind Regards, Hayley F

This place is sooooooooo beautiful and the activities were so nice. I loved the white water rafting there. I honestly would love to live in a tent as beautiful as this and I wish to come back Dear Caitlin, Thank you so much for your great review of Zambezi Sands. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay there with your family in October and we would love it if you came and stayed with us again! Warm wishes from The Imvelo Team
