Overview of Victoria Falls River Lodge

Nestled on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private game lodge to be built within the Zambezi National Park. Its privileged position – so close to the Falls you can see their spray in the distance – offers uninterrupted wilderness views and provides the most idyllic riverside sanctuary from which to take in a glorious sunset over the water. Excellent wildlife viewing, charming accommodation and fine dining on the doorstep of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World tick all the boxes for a superb Zimbabwean safari experience. The main lodge’s open-plan design makes the most of the elephants’ natural evening walking route, which allows you to watch them graze along the river from under the shade of the thatched viewing deck.

Between expertly guided 4×4 game drives within the 60 000 hectare national park, spend your time relaxing around the lodge and enjoying the panoramic views of the Zambezi River. Take a dip in the secluded swimming pool, which is also a serene spot to read a book or simply sit back and soak up the captivating wilderness. A boat cruise along the hippo and crocodile-filled river is a thrilling way to experience the mighty Zambezi and probably the world’s best location to watch the sun setting. For even more relaxation, treat yourself to a self-indulgent in-suite massage. Sleep under canvas each night in your well-equipped tent and listen as hippos cavort in the nearby river as you drift off to sleep.

    Offering a luxury camping experience, the spacious safari tents are more like canvas apartments than tents at all. Each one is tastefully decorated in earthy hues and equipped with a comfortable sitting area and extra-length, king-sized bed. The en suite bathroom features a free-standing bath and, if you would prefer to bathe outside with the hippos, there is an outdoor shower on the private viewing deck from where you can enjoy uninterrupted wilderness views.

        Victoria Falls River Lodge is probably the most opulent property I have every stayed at. As for the game viewing, I was blown away by how much game we saw!

        The Victoria Falls River Lodge was lovely! It was great to be on the river and take boat cruises for sunrise and sunset, watching the hippos and other animals!

        The Victoria Falls River Lodge was a great choice. Upon arrival, we got straight onto our first game drive. It was perfect! We saw the most animals that first night – a very exciting start to our trip.

        The best accommodation in our opinion was the Victoria Falls River Lodge – maybe because it was our last stop and we were ready for a more relaxing couple of days, but the tents/rooms were fantastic, the food wonderful and the staff were the best.
