Kayube Zambezi River House has a private pool and big terrace under a shady pergola. Sloping lawns with big old trees. Only the ground floor of the house is rented out and comes with cleaning staff.
The beautiful furniture is from indigenous hardwood and the house is tastefully decorated.
Kayube has a most romantic setting on the banks of the upper Zambezi River. The lodgings, scattered along the river bank, each one very private, consists of a spacious and luxurious 2 bed-roomed house with pool, three bungalows on stilts with big sliding doors and a deck all along the front, hidden away amongst enormous riverine trees, and the quaint Mama out of Africa, once the mobile dressing room for the 'Out of Africa' film crew and now resting under a huge thatched roof.
A place surrounded by natural beauty, the river with its for-ever changing moods the wildlife, elephants, buffalo, giraffe and many different antelopes just to name a few are seen and heard from the Zambezi National Park across the river, the resident hippos and the amazing birding opportunities are all around. A small cage pool surrounded by a sundeck floats in the Zambezi River.
It is difficult to pull yourself away to explore the Victoria Falls, 20 km downstream, and all Livingstone and the region has to offer. These unique self-catering options are ideal for a longer stay of a week or more but can also be rented for a minimum of two nights.
Staying at Kayube Estate is an unforgettable experience!. Three small bungalows, hidden away under the big trees and bush on the rivers’ edge. Sleep one couple or a couple with one or two children. The Estate is 25 km outside Livingstone a 25 minute drive, partly through the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
