Lolebezi Safari Lodge
Lolebezi offers authentic experiences provided by a local team that is proud of its roots. They are eager to share their heritage with guests. Expert guides lead safaris designed to be fun and informative. This heightens the awareness of the fragile balance between nature and communities in Africa.
Guests at Lolebezi can look forward to twice-daily activities. Game drives, guided walking safaris, riverboating, and canoeing offer close perspectives of wildlife. This includes enormous herds of elephants, leopard encounters, buffalo, waterbuck, prides of lions, and more.
Lolebezi offers world-class guided fishing trips (catch & release) and bird-watching excursions. It is time to kick back, relax, and watch the sun come up over the Zambezi. Also, guests can take advantage of Lolebezi’s spa and wellness facilities. This restores their spirit. They will also benefit from grounding sunrise and sunset salutations on the dapple-shaded yoga deck. An open-air cinema set amid a forest of enormous Winterthorn Acacias offers movie nights. Strategically placed ‘river pods’ are available for private picnics, guest retreats, and quiet moments surrounded by the sounds of nature.
Lolebezi can accommodate up to 16 travellers in 4 Signature Suites and 2 Signature Family Suites. They are sensitively designed and outfitted with amenities, including a private plunge pool and thatched-roof sala.
Opening onto the river, each suite is essentially a minimalist viewing platform with sections ‘twisted’ away from each other. A bedroom and sitting room facing east, and a bathroom, dressing room, and ‘loo-with-a-view’ toward the west.
The suites ‘float’ above the landscape. This allows water to pass underneath during heavy rains and occasional flooding. They are constructed of a prefabricated light-gauge steel frame, glass skin, natural canvas, and re-constituted hardwood railway sleepers.
Designers used handmade natural elements in the interior design. This includes woven reed ceilings and hand-carved wood doors as well as hand-stitched canvas strap detailing on the walls. The natural elements balance the contemporary nature of the building. Zambezi tribal elements, regional basket-ware, woven reed products from the country’s Central Province; and tactile and earthy tones with a hint of copper and forest green, all pay homage to its Zambian roots. A dramatic feature of each suite is a circular 13-foot diameter curtain around each bed. This combines both wooden beads and an embroidered mosquito net, creating a halo-like ‘cocoon’ in the room.
