Each chalet is secluded amongst the native flora, only 4 kilometers by road from the Lower Zambezi National Park. This is the only stretch on the 2,700 kilometer course of the Zambezi River where one finds National Parks on both banks of the river – the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia and the famed Mana Pools World Heritage Site in Zimbabwe.
The river extends the length of the property and there are breathtaking views over the water with sightings of buffalo, elephant, hippo and crocodile. The philosophy of combining a tranquil, off the beaten track destination for guests with support of the local environment, culture and natural resources is our dream.
