Kiambi Lower Zambezi is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, within the Chiawa Game Management area, near the confluence of the Zambezi and Kafue Rivers. Lower Zambezi National Park is some 65 kilometres down stream.

Accommodation varies from Luxury Chalets, which are air conditioned. There are 3 units, all set away from the main Lodge. They offer tea/ coffee making facilities, mini bar, satellite TV, and lounge area. There is a private veranda, and private garden. They are en suite with shower and bath. In addition there are eight Luxury Thatched Chalets, set on raised wooden platforms. These are en suite, with a private veranda, and view of the Zambezi River. These chalets also have tea/ coffee making facilities, and fans. There is also a six sleeper self catering cottage, on the banks of the River. It offers two twin bedrooms, a loft bedroom, a bathroom, and self contained kitchen with all equipment, a lounge and barbeque area. Firewood is supplied free of charge.

The main Lodge building houses the dining and lounge areas, as well as the bar. These have all been designed to capitalise on the breathtaking views. Meals are generally buffet with breakfast and lunch served in the thatched restaurant, and dinner al fresco.

There is a small swimming pool to relax in, and a gym, for the more energetic.

You can enjoy a number of activities at Kiambi. There is game viewing from a boat, a very peaceful way in which to get close to game, which is also complimented by the wonderful scenery; birding – there are over 250 species to be seen, along with seasonal migrants; sun downer boat cruises; canoeing – from a couple of hours to multi-day safaris spent exploring the River; fishing – if you are keen, or a fly fisherman, it is best to bring your own tackle. The Zambezi River is renowned for tiger fish – and a strict catch and release ruling is in place. The tiger fishing is best between September and November. You might also wish to try you skill at vundu, chess and nkupe.
