We understand and appreciate that your journey is just as important as your destination!
Located only 30 minutes by plane from the capital city Lusaka, Royal Zambezi Lodge offers various options for getting here. Our Reservations team are at hand to assist you with planning your transport options as soon as they have been advised on your itinerary.
Aptly named Royal Airstrip, our 1.8km tarred airstrip is only a 5-10 minute drive from the lodge and can often be the platform for your first sighting into camp, whether it be a baboon, impala or elephant you are sure to receive a unique welcome to the Lower Zambezi.
To make getting here even more accessible, we offer a “seat in plane” charter option that has been planned around set times for departure and arrival. Royal Zambezi Lodge has contracted these flights to our partners Royal Air Charters, a private charter company based in Lusaka. Upon landing at Royal Airstrip, you will be greeted by our guides who will assist you with luggage and accompany you on the short drive to the lodge.
Arriving by boat is an elegant way to start your stay at The Royal Zambezi Lodge. We regularly cruise to Gwabi Lodge on the Kafue River to pick up guests and can organise transfers from other camps and other destinations to meet your requirements.
If you are planning to drive to the lodge, we strongly recommend a 4×4 vehicle for getting here, as the last 70km of the road is extremely rough in places. Another alternative is to drive to Gwabi lodge on the Kafue River, and we can organise a boat transfer for the last 40km of the journey. A great way to start your stay at the lodge.
