Getting Here

Zambelozi, located 900 kilometers from Lusaka, is roughly a 10-hour drive from the capital via the Mongu road because of its bad road conditions. Alternatively, the journey through Livingstone takes approximately 9 hours. The nearest town, Sesheke, is only 21 kilometers from the lodge. The airstrip for charter aircraft is situated in Zambelozi, just 2 kilometers from Zambelozi Island Lodge. In the town, there is a mini-shopping center and a pharmacy. The camp is a 3-hour drive from Livingstone Airport, and it is advisable to use a 4x4 vehicle for all roads.

Our ferry is waiting to take you across to the island upon arrival!

When To Visit

March to April & August to October are prime months at Zambelozi. The great weather, fishing and animal sightings make it well worth the visit. These months provide excellent opportunities to catch tiger fish and bream (catch & release) as well as wonderful sightings of hippo, crocodile and even the occasional bathing elephant.
