This elegant lodge is situated on the private Kandahar Island, just under 20 kilometres / 12 miles upstream from the thunderous Victoria Falls – the biggest waterfall on Earth. Only accessible by boat, Victoria Falls Island Lodge is nestled among giant ilala palms, Natal mahogany and African ebony trees, and surrounded by the mighty Zambezi River.
This modern interpretation of a classic safari lodge is set on elevated decks and constructed from beautiful, warm honey-coloured timber. Raised wooden walkways connect the timber-and-glass suites with all the main guest areas and provide gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape and wildlife. You can also unwind in the Toa Spa
Go on expertly guided tours of Victoria Falls, gaining insights into the historical and natural facts about this World Heritage Site, and enjoying the best views of the largest curtain of falling water in the world! Enjoy twice-daily game drives in the vast Zambezi National Park – a 150 000-acre home to elephant, hippo, crocodile, buffalo, giraffe, wild dog and, if you are lucky, the occasional big cat such as a lion or leopard. Or leave the game-drive vehicle behind and explore the park’s alluring wilderness on a guided walk.
No visit to Victoria Falls Island Lodge is complete without venturing out onto Africa’s fourth-longest river. Follow a gentle-paced canoe trail through winding stretches of the river to experience incredible land- and water-based wildlife sightings like elephants, hippo and a plethora of bird species. If you are feeling less active, the incredible private river cruises offered by the lodge should float your boat. Start your day by witnessing the sun’s first rays frolicking across the shimmering water, or cruise down the river during Mother Nature’s golden hour with a refreshing sundowner drink in hand. Watching the fiery sun melt behind the horizon and painting the African sky with unimaginable colours is a scene you will cherish forever.
