Kanyemba Lodge has just six chalets beneath the deep shade of a mahogany forest. The chalets are furnished with the same solid wood that provides the shade and seclusion. A shaded private veranda looks out over a dambo - a wetland-like watering hole - frequented by large herds of elephant. The bathrooms are a delightful open-air affair with piping hot showers and views of the river and surrounding riverside forest.
Dining at Kanyemba Lodge - under mahogany trees on a raised deck - blends Italian flair with fresh locally-grown African ingredients and the result is something rather refreshing and wholesome.
The lodge has a small pool near the river beneath the trees and hemmed in by pool lounges and the glorious Zambezi views.
