Top 10 Best Zambia Safari Lodges & Camps

Zambia Safari Lodges

Zambia is an incredible country with the most amazing wildlife. There are so many things to see and do in Zambia, but the best part is that you can enjoy them with your family. The following is a list of some of the best lodges and camps around Zambia that offer excellent facilities for all ages.


Sambesi is one of the top safari lodges in Zambia, and it’s situated in the Lower Zambezi Valley. The property is surrounded by the Kafue National Park, which houses elephants, rhinos, and hippos; it also borders on Sambesi itself at its northern end. It’s located just north of Mfuwe (formerly known as Victoria Falls before being renamed in honor of Queen Victoria), where you can take day trips into this national park or explore nearby attractions like Livingstone Island or Mana Pools National Park via boat tour.

Shumba Camp

Shumba Camp, located in the Shumba Mountains in Lusaka, is one of the best places to go on a safari. The camp offers world-class facilities and services for its guests. You can enjoy a wide range of activities such as horseback riding or fishing in the lake just outside your room.

The cost of staying at Shumba Camp starts from K500 per person per night and goes up depending on how many people you want to accommodate (from 4 persons up). If you want more privacy than sharing an entire house with other guests, then we recommend booking their private bungalows, which start at K3200 per night, inclusive of meals & beverages.

Thornicroft Lodge

Thornicroft Lodge is located in the middle of the Zambian bush and offers accommodation for up to six people. The lodge has two self-catering chalets and a cabin with beds for four guests. Activities include game drives, bird watching, river rafting, and hiking on the banks of Lake Kariba. Food is served at communal dining tables or in your chalet. You’ll find a satellite TV with international channels like CNN International to keep you entertained while you’re away from home.

Thornicroft Lodge costs between $120-$150 per night, depending on the room type. There’s also an exclusive honeymoon suite available.

Tafika Camp

Tafika Camp is located in the Eastern Province of Zambia, close to Lake Tanganyika. This camp offers accommodation for tents and safari vehicles, with a choice of either walking or driving safaris. The food is delicious, and there are plenty of activities, such as game drives and snorkeling trips through their private marine reserve.

This lodge offers a variety of accommodation options, including tented canvas campsites with en suite bathrooms, wooden huts that sleep up to 20 people per hut (they can also be combined into two smaller groups), semi-permanent wooden lodges with private decks overlooking Lake Tanganyika and river views themselves along with air-conditioned rooms which are available for those who wish not to rough it outdoors during their stay here,

Chiawa Camp

Chiawa Camp is located in the heart of the Luangwa Valley, where you will have access to some of Zambia’s most spectacular wildlife. The camp offers comfortable accommodation and delicious meals that are all locally sourced.

The activities at this lodge include game viewing safaris, walking safaris, and canoeing expeditions. You can also enjoy horse riding or mountain biking on the grounds of your campsite or nearby trails if you prefer not to travel by vehicle during your trip.

Kaingo & Mwamba Camps

Kaingo & Mwamba Camps are located in the Lower Zambezi National Park, a World Heritage Site and one of Zambia’s most famous wildlife parks. The camps are a part of the Chichele Group of Lodges, including Kikaioa Camp and Mwamanga Camp.

Kaingo Camp is situated on a hilltop overlooking Lake Tanganyika and offers panoramic views across the lake to Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve. With over 1km (3/4 mile) of private beach frontage, it is the perfect spot for birdwatching or snorkeling among some 500 species, including hippo pods and crocodiles.

Located near Victoria Falls, Mwamanga Lodge offers guests two options: they can stay within their private game viewing area or opt for an all-inclusive safari vacation package that includes accommodation at Kaingo Lodge as well as guided game drives through nearby parks such as Gonarezhou National Park & Queen Elizabeth II Game Reserve.

Nsefu Safari Lodge

Nsefu Safari Lodge is a luxury-tented safari lodge in Zambia. The lodge is located in the South Luangwa National Park and has 13 luxury tents, a swimming pool, and a spa.

The resort also offers guests access to game drives, bush walks, or canoe trips through the park.

Chongwe River House – Private Villa

The Chongwe River House is a private villa located on Lake Tanganyika’s banks, meaning you’re right by the water. This lodge has beautiful views and offers an array of services for guests:

  • Accommodation – The lodge offers private bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, butler service, and 24-hour room service. There are also eight spacious tents for larger groups.
  • Activities – This lodge has many activities, including canoeing, fishing, and bird watching (with guides). You can also go swimming in the lake or relax on one of their many decks while soaking up some sun!
  • Cuisine – Their menu includes international cuisine like steak & lobster tail dishes, African delicacies like grilled beef tenderloins with spinach sauce or braised chicken breast served over rice pilafs topped with crisp croutons made from scratch daily using fresh ingredients sourced locally whenever possible (which means no preservatives!). They even offer vegetarian options, too, if you’re looking for something healthy 🙂

Busanga Bush Camp

Busanga Bush Camp is a luxury bush camp located north of Zambia, near Lusaka. It’s a great place to escape from the city and enjoy nature, but it also offers guests some luxuries you won’t find at other places in Zambia.

Located on the western shores of Lake Tanganyika, this luxury safari lodge is just 20 minutes from Lusaka International Airport (LIM). The lodge has five rooms decorated with African art and features modern amenities like air conditioning, cable TV, and WiFi access. Each room has its bathroom with showers or Jacuzzi tubs (in some cases) and king-size beds made of wood planks covered with cotton sheets and blankets—all topped off by fluffy down comforters.

River Club – Private Villa

River Club is a luxury safari lodge located on the Lower Zambezi River. It’s a private villa, not a camp or lodge. The maximum number of guests at River Club is four people.

The interior design of this lodge includes African tribal art and artifacts, as well as modern amenities to make your stay comfortable and unique. The main feature of this property is its proximity to nature—you have full access to nature trails where you can see animals like elephants, buffalos, and hippos roaming around freely.
