Have You Experienced the Revamped Zambezi Sun?

One of the most diverse and unique countries in the world, Morocco is the inspiration behind the newly-refurbished Zambezi Sun. Known as one of the best family hotels in Zambia, when planning this major refurbishment, the Zambezi Sun turned its gaze northward to the land of sun-kissed deserts, cloud-skimming mountains and ancient cities for design guidance.

Celebrated as one of only three countries to have both Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines, the name Morocco aptly means "The Western Kingdom" in Arabic. Taking its style cues from this ancient land, the Zambezi Sun is a slice of Moroccan magic blended with the warmth of Zambian hospitality and positioned in one of the most breath-taking locations in the world.

Scheduled to be complete in August 2015; the rooms, conference facilities, bar and pool area of the first block of the hotel have already been refurbished and are ready to welcome guests. If you've been wondering where to explore on your next family vacation, take this as a sign! Zambia is a no-brainer!

Did you know? Although Zambia is landlocked, three mighty rivers flow through Zambia. Can you guess which ones?*

While many of the best things to do near the Zambezi lie beyond the comforts of the hotel, it is totally understandable if you just want to enjoy the plush extras of the newly upgraded rooms.

We're talking speedy Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and new aircons. So basically, you can be connected, entertained and cooler-than cool without even changing out your fluffy gown! There's something to be said for the healing power of hotel rooms – with nothing to clean and everything to enjoy, a lengthy lie-in turned relaxation marathon can dissolve months of stress. Top that off with some room service and the updated rooms with Moroccan Mashrabiya patterns might just begin to feel like your own personal palace.

However, when you do actually venture beyond the comforts of your room you will be pleased to find the revamped pool and bar area complete with a pizza oven churning out everyone's favourite cheese and carb combinations. The new pizza oven also means that kids can design their own pizzas while the parents get acquainted with the cocktail menu.

Prized as one of the best family hotels in Zambia, the Zambezi Sun is also gearing up for the launch of Zuba's Adventure Camp. Offering kids loads of fun activities, Zuba's Adventure Camp will keep kids busy with an interactive and imaginative programme.

While Zambezi Sun is a popular family hangout, it is also a busy conference venue. The recent upgrades mean that the conference facilities have undergone a sprucing up with new carpeting, drapery, wall finishes and lampshades. But best of all, the latest technology has been fitted making doing business a breeze.
