Set on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, the luxury tented Victoria Falls River Lodge is a pioneer in many ways. As the first privately owned lodge to be situated in the Zambezi National Park (Zimbabwean side), Victoria Falls River Lodge is the ideal place from which to explore Victoria Falls as it combines the African Safari experience with one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World – the spray of which can be seen in the distance!

The main lodge has an open plan design and has been positioned just back from the river – in view of the elephants’ natural evening route. Sit back and sip on a cocktail, under the shade of the thatched roof, as the elephants graze along the river line. It’s a cool escape from the African sun.

Victoria Falls River Lodge takes relaxation one step further offering a selection of in-room massages, pedicures and manicures. The combination of exceptional wildlife viewing, fine dining, personal service, luxurious accommodation, an abundance of nearby adrenaline (and other) activities and several historical attractions ensures an unforgettable experience that will leave guests wanting to return again, and again.

The spacious luxury tents are set right on the banks of one of the most famous rivers in the world, the Zambezi.

Each tent has been tastefully decorated in earthy hues and offers a larger than king size bed, freestanding bath, comfortable sitting area, indoor and outdoor shower and a private viewing deck where one can sit and watch the hippos wallowing. Family tents also offer an additional tented room, with one single and one bunk bed, where three children can sleep comfortably, allowing their parents a bit more privacy.

Children are important to us and Victoria Falls River Lodge offers a holiday experience for the whole family.

Children are invited to participate in local activities like grass weaving, bread-making and fishing. Qualified Field Guides also conduct special “kids tours” around the lodge, uncovering an amazing world of plants and wildlife – right on their doorsteps.

Our trained Field Guides offer guests two safari options:

The first is to take a river cruise along the Zambezi and, whilst sipping a sundowner, marvel at the animals that come to the waters edge to drink at the end of the day.

OR: For the ultimate bush safari experience, head out in a game-viewer to explore the 150,000 acres that make up the Zambezi National Park. Track the elephant herds as they move silently through the bush and admire the giraffe as they weave their way through the acacia thicket.

Night drives and guided walking safaris can be arranged for the more adventurous guests.
