Tony, Ann and their great team provide a warm welcome to one of the finest areas in Zambia, catering for everybody's needs just 6 Kilometers from the mighty Zambezi River.
Gwabi River Lodge is only 145 km from Zambia's capital Lusaka. It is situated on the tranquil banks of the Kafue River, undisturbed by passing boats. Set in lush green lawns with beautiful views over the river.
The lodge is the oldest in the area and consists of nine en-suite, air conditioned chalets with DSTV and complimentary tea and coffee trays, our rooms accommodate two adults or up to four in a family arrangement.
We also have a large shaded camping ground overlooking the Kafue River. Our campsite is fully equipped with power points, lights, ablution block and braai facilities. Also available are two en-suite chalets with fans and a limited number of tents for hire.
2015 has seen the introduction of our brand new stone tents, sleeping two singles. They are a more comfortable and convenient way to take in the great outdoors with as little fuss as possible.
A large outdoor swimming pool and bar area can be found at the main lodge and our friendly and accommodating team serve breakfast, lunch and dinner (special dietary needs may be catered for upon request) either inside or out on our deck overlooking the Kafue River.
Gwabi River Lodge lends itself to supporting the local community, all the staff come from the local villages and surrounding area and speak proudly of their local history and culture.
For people who enjoy fishing or just want to game view down the river, we have a fleet of 9 boats for hire. The coxwains will show you the best fishing spots or can take you on a game viewing trip or a sun-downer cruise (clients may use our launch site for their own boats). Two seater canoes are also available for hire with a trained guide. We can organise trips for an hour or two up to three days down stream.
For bird watchers this is the ultimate spot to find over a hundred species of birds, with the help of our friendly staff.
For those who need to stay in touch with the world, we do have WiFi facilities for all resident guests.
Gwabi is the perfect location for a relaxed weekend away and family time together, it is accessible through out the year, including the beautiful green season.
