The Lodge

Environmental sensitivity, along with an appreciation for the privacy of our guests, were considered during the design of Redcliff Zambezi Lodge. Chalets are conveniently spaced under the large, shady riparian trees. The lodge property (about 100 ha) extends along 1.5 km river frontage. The lodge is equipped with fully stocked bar, pool, Wi-fi and DSTV. Cellphone reception is available in the managers office.


The lodge was originally launched as Redcliff Zambezi Fishing Safaris in 1997 with tiger fishing as the main focus. By the time the lodge was completed in 1999, it had become obvious that the area has so much more to offer, both because of its remoteness as well as its proximity to a wealth of cultural history.



Redcliff Zambezi Lodge can accommodate up to 16 guests. Four stone, tent-roofed chalets (each with 2 beds) and two family chalets (each with 4 beds).

Guests can enjoy stunning views and abundant bird life of the Zambezi River from the privacy of their chalets and viewing decks.



The indigenous vegetation forms the ‘garden’ between chalets, with the huge trees providing a shady canopy above the beautiful lawns. The camp is built safely above the high-flood level.



Chalets are spacious and airy, designed to combat the heat and humidity even during the hottest months.

Each chalet is mosquito proof and is equipped with a fan, large, comfortable beds and en suite facilities consisting of a shower, toilet, hot and cold running water.



The 220 volts Power supply is a hybrid system using generators, solar panels and inverters.
