Itinerary

Day to day

After arriving at Livingstone’s International Airport, a driver will meet you for your road transfer to Tongabezi Lodge. Idyllically set on the bank of the great Zambezi River just upstream from the Victoria Falls, Tongabezi’s dreamy location showcases beautiful panoramic views of the Zambezi water making its way to the plunge over the Falls’ edge. Contrary to expectations, the calm surface of the river conceals its powerful nature, creating a serene backdrop to the lodge, occasionally enlivened by the bellows of a hippo or cries of a fish eagle.

Victoria Falls has an array of activities to choose from, such as scenic helicopter rides over the Falls, zip lining over Batoka Gorge, bungee jumping, sundowner cruises, a tour of the Falls, high tea at the famous Victoria Falls Hotel, and shopping at a local craft market. At the lodge, take leisurely strolls through the lodge’s gardens, relax poolside, or pamper yourself with a spa treatment. With breathtaking views and a peaceful atmosphere, the lodge provides the perfect retreat after a day out enjoying all that this incredible destination offers.
