A honeymoon is something that will be etched into your memory forever, and we look forward to working with you to make this special occasion at Royal perfect. Allow us to transport you over the magnificent Zambezi Valley escarpment and river below in comfort and style from a private charter plane or helicopter. For the more adventurous land dwellers, we would be happy to arrange a boat cruise meandering down the Zambezi River to and from Royal.


Our Presidential Suites provide the perfect haven for your honeymoon and ensure absolute privacy for you both with private plunge pools, outdoor day beds, copper bathtubs, and spacious lounges.


How about we spoil you with chilled champagne on ice to enjoy on your shady veranda overlooking the river after the exciting Zambezi adventure you have just shared?


Dine under the stars in the main building at a table for two, or on the privacy of your suite deck. For this special occasion, we can add in an extra element of romance by organising bush or island sun-downers, lunches in the bush, or meals under the stars to surprise your partner.


We will liaise with you each day to arrange activities to best suit you, from sunset boat cruises to a private game drive, or a tranquil canoe trip just for two. For the more active and competitive couples, you might like to compete to catch the biggest tiger fish which our experienced fishing guides would be more than happy to plan for you!


For those looking to relax you can just do nothing at all (DNA), watch the wildlife at play around camp whilst the Zambezi flows on by and enjoy the Royal Bush Spa where our expert therapist is on hand to provide massages and other treatments.


Please contact our reservations team to arrange an event hosting at Royal Zambezi Lodge.

Royal Zambezi Lodge provides the perfect setting for a smaller intimate wedding enjoyed at one with surrounding nature and the various sounds of Lower Zambezi wilderness.

To create your perfect big day the lodge can be booked in its entirety for absolute privacy and will allow you to sleep and seat a maximum of 30 guests. We can arrange transport to the lodge, either by private charter planes or by river cruise.


In the run-up to the wedding, the Royal Bush Spa can provide massages and other beauty treatments to help you relax, and the presidential suites offer spacious accommodation for the bridal party’s preparations.


The islands in the middle of the Zambezi provide the perfect location for you to share your wedding vows, where your guests will not only consist of friends and family but resident wildlife such as elephants and hippos too! After the ceremony, you will be whisked off for a romantic river cruise while your guests are taken, by boat, to the venue to await your arrival.


Arrive back at the lodge to a canapé and champagne reception and your wedding meal presented and served on the veranda. Our team of chefs will provide delicious menu options from which you can select your celebration meal, and finish up with a Royal wedding cake. After dinner, you can dance under the stars to the Royal choir or acoustic ballads and enjoy the famous Sausage Tree bar.


The presidential suites are the perfect location for your first night as a married couple with absolute privacy, plunge pools, spacious lounges and shady verandas overlooking the river.


The following day we can organise activities for you and your guests – from river cruises, fishing on the Zambezi, to game drives and bush lunches or merely arrange your transfers onwards.

Are you tired of having meetings in an enclosed room or a high-rise building with noise and distraction all around? Why not surround yourselves with inspiring African wilderness where you can mix business with pleasure? At Royal, we are able to offer conference facilities with a difference by turning our dining room into a meeting area.  Complete with a projector and screen, a large table to seat 30 participants, a refreshing breeze and the most spectacular room with a view!

Situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, the lodge offers a magnificent backdrop for corporate events. Fifteen luxury suites accommodate a party of up to 15 people in single suites or 30 in twins with plenty of communal space in the reception area and veranda for socialising and dining. For larger groups, we can organise further accommodation at a nearby lodge.


When it comes to event hosting and conferences. we will work with you to prepare a tailored itinerary to suit your group, with room for flexibility depending on what activities you desire. The range of activities on offer includes game drives, canoeing, boat cruises, fishing, bush walks and cultural trips to the village. More relaxing pastimes may be enjoyed in the tranquil Royal Bush Spa, with our attentive therapist on hand to provide massages and other therapeutic beauty treatments.


Fun team-building activities can be organised, including touch rugby on the sand bars by the river, or perhaps a fishing competition to run throughout the duration of your trip. For the evening, your group might enjoy a movie night with a cinema, complete with popcorn, set up outdoors on the veranda. Perhaps a game drive ending in a fantastic location where surprise sundowners will be laid on, followed by a night safari on the way back to the lodge. The trip can be rounded off with drinks around a campfire – an excellent opportunity to bond over stories from the last few days, a prize-giving ceremony and a farewell dinner under the stars.
