The Zambian Zanzibar Sands Hotel

This three-night stay at The Zambian Zanzibar Sands Hotel was the highlight of our entire Zambian tour. We were so excited to taste true African cuisine and travel to Africa’s most beautiful country. We visited places like Lake Mbare, the Kruger National Park and spent time in some of the most stunning places in all of Zambia, from the Kruger National Park to the Northernmost parts of the country. The hotel is set in a cliff-top gutter on the banks of Lake Mbare popular with sealers and anglers, yet it’s also a charming, charming place to stay. We loved the quaintness of the hotel, the beautiful gardens and the view of the surrounding mountains across the room. There’s also a huge pool with a spa where you can relax after your trekking in Lake Mbare.
