• Private accommodation on the Zambezi - The Princess Mary Suite - Zambia

Princess Mary Suite

A luxurious double storey villa situated in a secluded garden with a private pool, the Princess Mary Suite offers an intimate experience for families or groups of friends seeking privacy and space.

Named after the Royal Princess Mary, who represented the Queen at Zambia's Independence in 1964, the suite is just as enigmatic and charming as the person to whom it pays homage.

The suite can accommodate two to six guests.

Upstairs is the Master Double Suite with a king-size bed wrapped by a walk-in mosquito net, and full bathroom en-suite (shower, double vanity, private lavatory – the ball and claw bath is located next to the spacious bedroom with views over the river). The upstairs master suite also has a private balcony facing the River.

Downstairs, the second, private bedroom has twin-single-beds enveloped by a mosquito net, a lounge-living area, mini-bar and dining area. The second bathroom (not en-suite) has a double vanity, large walk-in shower, lavatory and dressing room.

Two additional single beds can be arranged in the downstairs living area to accommodate a total of six guests.

Guests may choose to dine privately in the comfort of the suite or join other guests at the main lodge.
The Princess Mary Suite has overhead fans above the beds, air-conditioning units (cool or warm), a hotel-type safe, hair-dryer, a mini-bar fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. In the event of power outages, the inverter/solar battery back-up system runs the overhead fans, as well as certain lights and plug sockets.

Princess Mary Suite: 

Our Princess Mary Suite is named after Mary, the Princess Royal, aunt of Queen Elizabeth II. She was particularly close to her eldest brother, the Prince of Wales, who subsequently became Edward VIII (who was known as David to his family).

After the abdication crisis, she and her husband went to stay with the former Edward VIII, by then created Duke of Windsor, at Enzenfeld Castle near Vienna. Later, in November 1947, she allegedly declined to attend the wedding of her niece, Princess Elizabeth, to Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten to protest the fact that the Duke of Windsor had not been invited. She gave ill health as the official reason for her non-attendance. She attended the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953 and later represented the Queen at the independence celebrations of Trinidad and Tobago in 1962, and Zambia in 1964.
