Zambian Family Adventure
The Zambezi Sun, situated on the banks of the Zambezi is only a short walk from the Falls.
It is a popular choice with families of all ages and offers the Kamp Kwena Kiddies Centre, the perfect spot where kids can be kids; giving parents plenty of free time to discover all the attractions in the area. Available to children from 2 to 12 years old, kids enjoy a variety of activities such as half-day excursions to places of interest, fun and games and nature walks.
Kasaka River Lodge is a luxury tented lodge on the banks of the Zambezi in the Lower Zambezi Valley, offering guests a unique holiday experience as well as a safari. Choose the 'Wild Side', where tents are connected by overhead walkways which allow elephants and other wildlife to walk directly underneath to the river bank or on the 'Tame Side' of camp where the tents are set amongst manicured lawns (thanks to a few resident hippos) and are closer to the swimming pool.
Kasaka River Lodge also offers a specially designed bush kids' programme for children, they are given an activity pack which will keep them entertained for hours while mum and dad are relaxing by the pool, or they could take a 'Pooh Walk' with one of the professional guides.
