Privately commissioned by a Lusaka-based family, the brief for the main lodge was to resemble a 1900’s Namibian landmark, originally designed by a German-trained architect. A fascinating and complex conception, the purpose and function has always been the same; to accommodate the spirit of adventurous exploration through comfort and leisure.

The family used to holiday at the Swakopmund Hotel, on Namibia’s Skeleton Coast. The design of the Swakopmund Hotel was based around the architecture of the historic station building that was built in 1901 and which was then transformed into the hotel. The idea for Zambezi Grande (or River Grande as it was known back then) was based loosely around this design.

The South African family behind the successful Nambiti Hills Private Game Experience, in Kwa-Zulu Natal, took ownership of the property in 2017 and with the opening of Zambezi Grande Private Game Experience, the story continues and grows as each guest, both new and returning, adds their chapter to this Grande tale.
