The Zambezi Waterfront is situated on the Northern banks of the Zambezi River, approximately 4 km’s upstream from The Victoria Falls and just opposite Siloka Island (Long Island), and is open all year round.

This establishment is designed to attract the younger more adventurous traveller (and of course the young at heart!) who wish to experience the Great Zambezi River, the wonder of the Victoria Falls and its stunning wildlife surrounds, without great expense. It is designed to cater for all travellers, from camping to basic, good quality chalet accommodation.

The Waterfront complex boasts 7 thatched chalets – 3 units overlook the river with the remaining situated in cool, shaded wooded area. The chalets each consist of 3 separate rooms with en-suite bathroom facilities. There are 3 Executive River Facing Rooms, 4 Family Rooms, 10 Standard Rooms and 6 Riverside Rooms.

The “Adventure Village” – a cluster of 3m x 3m Bow tents built on raised platforms, each with a small deck in front – are strategically place in the shady extensively lawned complex away from the chalets. Each tent is equipped with 2 beds, electric light and fan. This village accommodates 48 guests in 24 tents.

The campsite is set amongst large trees in shady surroundings. Catering for the overland or self-drive market, clients can choose from a variety of sites accommodating 90 guests.

Both sites have spotlessly clean ablution facilities, comprising hot and cold showers, basins and toilets, as well as barbeque facilities.
