The ever-popular Zambezi Sun are one of the finest hotels in Africa, located in the heart of a 46 hectare resort within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park. The Zambezi Sun is the ultimate family and conferencing experience to be found on the banks of the Zambezi River. This is a resort that sets its own standards of global excellence, justifying its status as the perfect partner to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, with a wide range of accommodation, restaurants, bars and activities to suit every taste. And it exudes the very essence of the Zambian people, who have a warmth about them that is far greater than the sun that shines down on this proud land.
