The Victoria Falls River Lodge offers a serene haven from the hot African sun with its well-thought-out design. It is located just a few meters from the edge of the river where travellers are encouraged to relax and rejuvenate while enjoying the panoramic views of the Zambezi River and the occasional majestic elephant passing by. The sound of native birds as they feed provides delightful background “music”. Guests have full use of the refreshing swimming pool.

The Lodge is a luxury safari lodge, beautifully set on the edge of the Zambezi River. The first of its kind in the Zambezi National Park offers a tented lodge tastefully decorated in earth tones. The main lodge is well-positioned and has the perfect view elephant’s regular evening route. Guests can sit back and relax, enjoying a cocktail in the open-plan lodge and under the shade of a thatched roof a real exodus from the hot African heat.

Lodge rooms offer a king-sized bed, a comfortable sitting area, a freestanding bath and indoor and outdoor showers; each tent also provides a viewing deck ideal for watching the wallowing hippos. Family tents offer an additional tented room which can accommodate three children with ease. All shelters have mosquito nets, a mini-bar, an electronic safe, fans, air conditioners and international adapters.

Birding

With a variety of bird habitats in proximity to the lodge, bird watchers are spoilt for choice. Whether on a safari drive, a boat cruise, a guided bush walk or merely enjoying a drink on their private deck, guests will have the opportunity to witness a variety of resident species as well as intra-African and Palaearctic migrants.
