Lumbe Pools

Lumbe Pools offers a truly unique Zambezi River experience in the heart of Barotseland.

We want you to experience something special when you visit our camp in Barotseland! It’s everything we know you will love from a visit to the Zambezi with the added ‘wow’ of our magic little secret, the Lumbe River! Right from the outset, we wanted Lumbe Pools to be different – in the best way.

Lumbe Pools

A truly unique Zambezi experience in the heart of Barotseland.

We know people who would rather walk unarmed through a National Park than operate again in Zambia’s Western Province. They found it that hard. When Zambians call a place ‘the Wild West,’ you should probably take notice. But that’s what makes it fun to visit and explore! We built and opened Lumbe Pools in June 2023 and it’s a really special spot. It has some uncanny similarities to South Africa’s Pondoland (or Wild) Coast and with all the little beaches and swimming pools we have on the Lumbe River, we have made the experience very much a ‘barefoot inland beach’ camp. It’s the perfect place for an extended family holiday or a 2 or 3 night break on the way up or down from Liuwa Plain or Chobe.
