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 4x4 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.
