Introduction

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge is a charming private lodge situated by the Zambezi River bank on the Zambian side of the river. Its location is on Old Constania Farm on Nakatindi Road, about 35km from the Victoria Falls park entrance on the Zambian side, and 30 minutes from Livingstone Town. Transfers are provided by the lodge to and from the Livingstone Airport.

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge has seven thatched cottages scattered within the complex with a main double storey lodge which faces the river. Each of the rooms has a name of a different bird and either faces the mighty Zambezi River or the small private lake at Waterberry Zambezi Lodge. The lake is home to various species of birds and wildlife including crocodiles and hippo. All rooms at the lodge have a private deck with wooden chairs and table, ideal for sundowners, relaxation, bird watching, or a private dinner which the lodge can arrange for guests.

Beautiful, luscious green lawns bring the lodge to life along with different animals and birds which can be spotted on the lodge grounds. Near the main lodge is a clear blue swimming pool with a small plunge pool safe for the younger guests. For relaxation in the main area of the complex, Waterberry Zambezi Lodge offers a floating deck with a view of the river, pontoons located right on the river banks, lounging on the terrace and lounge of the main lodge. Meals are simple, but a pleasure with a few dining options to choose from, from al fresco to picnics to bush dinners.

Guests are welcome to take a nature walk around the lodge and to the private lake. Other activities at the Waterberry Zambezi Lodge include half day fishing trips by boat with guides, fishing on the pontoon, all day and sunset boat cruises, picnics on the island on the Zambezi River, guided birding excursions, cultural visits to the nearby village, Livingstone Town tours, and tour of the Victoria Falls.

All in all, the Waterberry Zambezi Lodge is a great place for those who want to get away and not be too far out - it is not far from town, but not close enough to experience the hustle and bustle of Livingstone and Victoria Falls towns. On a Fully Inclusive basis, which is what most guests usually chose, the lodge offers plenty at a reasonable price. Guests may opt for the Bed and Breakfast rates which excludes activities and the other meals. Waterberry Zambezi Lodge staff is well versed in the area, activities and are there to offer advice whenever it is needed. Information booklets and an orientation are given when you get to the lodge.

Family vacations are ideal in this location, although safety is a bit of a concern since there is no fencing around the swimming pool, and animals (elephants, hippo, etc) do come and graze on the Waterberry Zambezi Lodge grounds. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes and clothes for excursions, and warm jackets especially for the early morning activities. Although there is electricity and a backup generator, you may want to bring a flash light and extra batteries as there are frequent power cuts in the area. In the summer months, loose clothing, lip balm, sun hats, sun screen, sun glasses and swimming attire are essential for your trip. The Zambezi is generally Malaria zone, so make sure you have taken preventative measures, and protect yourself with insect repellent and long sleeves in the evenings especially. Travel and health insurance is also a must.

Client Testimonials

Perfect

Many thanks for all your assistance. You have probably been the most responsive and helpful tour organizers I have worked with- anywhere in the world. I'll be sure to recommend you to my colleagues and friends.

All the activities lived up to the hype!
by Alex (Swaziland)
Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!
All the best

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
