Rose Rabbit Zambezi River Bushcamp

Tented camp in Livingstone

This riverside beach camp is one for independent travellers looking for a different scene. Right on rapid 21 of the Lower Zambezi, it will suit not only rafting enthusiasts but also a more free-spirited crowd who are into bonfire jamborees, swimming and hanging out by the beach. As well as campsites, there are dorms, tented camps and A-frame treehouse digs.

Food's available (US$20 for three meals), or you can bring your own. They organise a heap of activities, including whitewater rafting and fishing (free of charge), music festivals, hiking and bush camping. To get here it's US$15 for transport, from where it's a further 20 minute walk down Batoka Gorge.
