Where To Stay Along The Way
Sausage Tree Camp – This spot has some seriously cool rooms with private plunge pools and epic, immersive activities; think lunch on the river, sundown boat trips, a stunning stretch of river perfect for canoeing, great sundowners, delicious food (ask for a margarita, it was perfectly mixed!). A cool pool area, and showstopping views over the river from the main area with a cool breakfast bar setup.
Old Mondoro – An absolutely incredible setting, on which are dotted old-school style bushcamp rooms and communal areas with all the luxurious touches, around an open winterthorn grove. Elephants are free to wander throughout (so sometimes you have to be driven to the loo!), and you’ll enjoy wildlife-peppered views to the river in one direction and the woodland in the other.
Sindabezi Island – A stunner of a camp at Vic Falls, it’s the more safari-style camp compared to its sister lodge, Tongabezi (which we also think is absolutely magic). It has a Robinson Crusoe-esque feel, on a sand island – Laura fell asleep to the sound of a pride of lions calling back and forth to each other in Zambezi National Park, just over the other side of the river. Intimate and rustic, but beautiful and spoiling in equal measure.
Kutali Camp – Let your wild side out with this back-to-basics but incredibly cool camp, run by a seriously fun team where the guiding is epic, the area is one of the most beautiful spots in the Lower Zambezi and the focus is on getting out and having fun, no rules (a vibe we can wholeheartedly get behind!).
