Overview of Mukwa River Lodge

Sitting on the edge of the Zambezi River, just upstream from Victoria Falls, is Mukwa River Lodge, a luxury boutique property designed to blend with its natural surroundings. Here, you’ll be immersed into the African wilderness, experiencing nature like never before.

This intimate lodge might be small in size but offers stylish yet comfortable upscale accommodation in a perfect African setting. The highlight of each room is undoubtedly the sweeping panoramic view you have of the Zambezi River, while spotting wildlife from the privacy of your patio comes in at a close second. During your stay, you’ll get to experience the Zambezi through exhilarating activities, including safari drives led by expert guides, animal tracking, walks through the bush, sundowner river boat rides, fly-fishing, white-water rafting, and helicopter flights over Victoria Falls.
