With four private double chalets, Nyamoumba River Lodge is the perfect get away for small groups, couples or even solo travel. Built in prime position on the banks of the beautiful Zambezi River, spectacular views are guaranteed. With activities river based, visitors get the chance to experience a different side to safari and even try their hand at fishing for the iconic Tigerfish. Our welcoming staff will treat you to delicious meals and wonderful service.
Situated at the very end of the Kariba Gorge as it opens into wide river flood plains, just 27km down from the iconic dam wall, Nyamoumba River Lodge boasts the best of both worlds - Wildlife Safaris and Birding Safaris all on the beautiful Zambezi River. Our bush highway is the river itself, giving guests unique opportunities for riverine game and bird viewing and exciting fishing. The lodge is positioned opposite a beautiful island that is frequented by families of elephants and other islands are close by, offering the perfect spots for beach lunches and sundowners.
Being based on the Zambezi River means incredible bird viewing, with boat trips right up into the Kariba Gorge itself. The rare Pel’s fishing owl is a regular visitor and seasonal avian visitors make each trip unique. We offer bird and game viewing by boat and on the neighbouring islands. Life jackets are provided for all water-based activities.
We will be offering game drives on the mainland and walking safaris by request shortly. Our professional guides are as at home on the water as on the land, so every trip is a discovery, with our seasoned boat captains in the know of all the best spots on the river.
Catch and release fishing of all species is another exciting activity, with this stretch of river home to the highly sought-after Tiger Fish. A fierce fighter, this game fish offers excellent sport and toothy trophy shots when landed. Our specially equipped boats have USB charging points so you will never miss recording your catch or wildlife sighting. Private booking of boats and vehicles can be arranged by prior request at an additional charge.
