The new Victoria Falls River Lodge has quickly established itself as one of the places to stay in
Victoria Falls, with an emphasis on taste. Situated on the banks of the
Zambezi, the lodge is the first private concession within the Upper
Zambezi National Park in
Zimbabwe, upstream of the
Victoria Falls (you can see the spray in the distance!), the lodge delivers luxury tented accommodation and fine dining in a stunning setting.
The Park offers game viewing opportunities within a short distance of the Victoria Falls. Wildlife along the river is varied and include good numbers of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, many antelope species and hippopotamus, who spend their day in water to avoid the heat of the sun and come out to feed on the banks of the river at night.
The permanent availability of water along the river means that wildlife populations are widely dispersed, but the patient safari goer may even be lucky enough to find leopard, lion, hyena or even wild dog, species which all occur in the region. Reptiles are common, with crocodiles along the river and many species of snake, lizard and skink to be found on land. Birdlife is also diverse, from herons, egrets and storks to weavers, woodpeckers and fish eagles.
Victoria Falls River Lodge’s location and luxurious comfort makes it all too easy to relax, enjoy the top quality service and let the wildlife come to you. Each luxury tent is carefully situated for its own, unique and private views of the river, decorated in subtle earthly hues, while the central lodge boasts a spacious open plan dining and lounge area with swimming pool.
Explore the area through Victoria Falls River Lodge’s organised activities and you will be richly rewarded. The lodge offers guided game drives within the National Park, including night drives (always recommended), and guided walks by professional safari Guides. This concession for walking is particularly good. Sunset river cruises are a must as are the exclusive picnic options on Kandahar Island. This area is also renowned for birdwatching with many endemic species. The lodge offers optional boat transfers to and from town.
