Carved out of the African bush, Kanyemba is a wonderful family getaway in the Lower Zambezi, only two and a half hours from the Capital City of Lusaka. Kanyemba’s great atmosphere and vibe, the staff, the surrounding nature, expert guiding, and breathtaking scenery, along with our renowned cuisine will make your experience of Zambia’s hospitality one to remember! Kanyemba Lodge strives to provide a haven in which to enjoy the beauty and activities on offer in the Lower Zambezi. Catering for a maximum of 20 guests, the lodge comprises 6 stone and thatch “rondavel” chalets, each with their own large private deck overlooking the Zambezi River, full en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.
Stunning en-suite bathrooms include state-of-the-art fittings and bright mirror lighting. Chalets also include walk in wardrobes with shelving, hanging rails, digital safe, and plenty of room for storage. All chalets have 220V electricity (mains with full generator backup), ceiling fans, and mosquito netting. Overlooking the river, the restaurant and bar allow spacious & relaxed dining. Meanwhile upstairs, guests can relax and enjoy the extensive library and lounge with a view across the river – the perfect space to while away the afternoon!
Each evening guests are treated to Kanyemba Lodge’s famous cuisine under the branches of a giant wild Mango Tree. With a distinctly Italian influence, our team of chefs will wow your palate at the same time as the “Kanyemba Chorus” of hyena, frogs, and of course the odd lion, will wow your mind.
The lodge also has a swimming pool beautifully situated on the banks of the river, with built-in benches that allow a retreat from the hotter hours of the day – whilst sipping a G&T and watching the elephants on the opposite bank.

Lower Zambezi National Park
Just a few hours drive from Lusaka (or a 30 minute chartered flight), Lower Zambezi is most likely Zambia’s most picturesque park and is also surprisingly remote, with a number of stunning and exclusive luxury lodges along the river bank.
This part of the might Zambezi River has become a particular favourite with fishing aficionados. Healthy tiger fish and bream catches are common. In the south, the Zambezi River valley is known for abundant wildlife, including buffalo, fish eagles and herds of elephants. Canoes ply the river, which is home to hippos and crocodiles. In the east, the river passes past the striking red cliffs of Mupata Gorge, with its fish-filled waters. North is the steep and rugged Zambezi Escarpment.
