Cheerful open plan self catering chalet located on the banks of the Zambezi River. Relax in a quiet off-grid location while enjoying the comfort of home. This is one of two identical units - see Masau Guesthouse - Lower Zambezi, Siavonga.
Guests have full and private use of the entire chalet, which includes a bathroom with shower and toilet and a fully fitted kitchen. Mopani Guesthouse is powered by a renewable energy source, with the exception of air-conditioning, which can be activated for an additional hourly fee.
Boat launch and floating dock available for those who come with a boat. Favourite water activities are game cruises along the Eastern bank (Hurungwe Conservancy) and fishing for Bream, Chessa and Tigerfish.
We are located in a rural area where wildlife may move around. Hippos, crocodiles and occasionally lions are in the area but this unit is safely enclosed by monitored electric fencing. Many species of birds are found in the area.
Mopani Guesthouse is surrounded by irrigated pastures that support an established sheep farm.
NOTE: It is recommended to travel to this property with 4x4 only during our rainy season (Dec - Feb.)
