Victoria Falls River Lodge

Tented luxury in the Zambezi National Park

With its open-plan design, the Victoria Falls River Lodge offers uninterrupted views over the African bush where elephants graze and over the river where hippos relax. Sit back with a cocktail and take in the incredible vistas under the thatched roof of the lodge before taking a dip in the pool.

A blissful retreat, the lodge features spacious open-plan dining and lounge areas as well as a bonfire outside. Here you'll enjoy a whole host of tour activities and safari experiences, including visits to private hides nearby, for close-quarters experience with elephants and vultures, helicopter tours of the mighty Victoria Falls, white-water rafting and sunset cruises.

Wish I could’ve stayed longer!

Austin, Texas

The Lodge is beautiful, the staff delightful and the food top notch. Our guide, Polite, was amazing.... SO knowledgeable. The ONLY thing I would’ve changed was the amount of time we were there... it wasn’t enough!

Zambezi magnificent

Belgium

Great location and organisation to fully enjoy the Zambezi river. Especially morning river cruise is a must do (water very quiet - no other ships). Food is great. Management is great. They really did everything to make your stay amazing. Location is top notch. During the night hippo's and buffalo's in the lodge and around your room.
