Zambian Horizons is a collection of luxury camps and lodges in Zambia’s top national parks and this Autumn saw the addition of a new safari house and a complete refurbishment of their private island retreat.
Sausage Tree Camps Kigelia Safari House
Recently opened, Kigelia House is the ideal place for groups of friends and families to enjoy a more exclusive luxury Lower Zambezi safari experience. Set slightly apart from the main camp and closest to the Zambezi River, guests can soak up the panoramic views, the picturesque winding river and abundant wildlife. Kigelia House is the ultimate private safari house, complete with a fully stocked bar and large dining area guests can dine in privacy away from the main camp. A spacious open plan living room boasts deep leather sofas and a high canvas ceiling which spills out onto the verandah overlooking the Zambezi River. It is here too after adrenalin packed safari drives that guests can unwind on the day beds which surround the large infinity pool.
The long awaited, private island paradise of Sindabezi Island is now complete and open to guests. All five thatched cottages have been rebuilt from the ground up, two of which have been transformed into honeymoon suites complete with ensuite bathrooms and roll top baths for the ultimate luxury. To enhance the romance of this secluded island two new star gazing decks have been built offering uninterrupted views of the Zambezi River and the African sky. In addition a private ‘Mokoro’ overwater deck is ideal for sundowners and romantic candlelit dinners whilst the main dining area in the centre of the island sits on stilts offering stunning dawn and dusk vistas of the River and its wildlife. Each open fronted cottage sits on the edge of the island overlooking the River, where Hippos wallow only metres away. Private valets will make guests stay effortless, from turning the beds down at night, switching the flickering safari lamps on and closing the mosquito nets around the bed, so that guests can climb in and feel cocooned to waking you in the morning with a cup of tea and a selection of freshly baked biscuits to kick start your action packed day.
