May 9 – 12, 2023 – Victoria Falls River Lodge
Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private game lodge built in the Zambezi National Park. This luxury tented lodge is situated right on the banks of the Zambezi River, so close to the Falls you can see the spray in the distance. Erected upon raised decks, under vast thatched roofs, each of the 13 spacious tents have been tastefully decorated in earthy hues and offers a larger than king size bed, comfortable sitting area, and open plan bathroom with freestanding bath as well as indoor and outdoor showers. Each private viewing deck affords spectacular views of the river and surrounding natural fauna and flora, and has its own plunge pool. Family suites are also available. Standard to each tent are mosquito nets, electronic safes, tea/coffee making facilities, ceiling fans, air conditioners and international adapters.
INSIDER’S TIP: We are the closest game park to the Victoria Falls and exceptional game and bird viewing can be seen from your own private deck.
Daily Itinerary while in Victoria Falls
A typical day in the bush involves waking up early ahead of the sunrise for a delicious light breakfast and welcome cup of coffee before heading out to explore the magnificent landscape in search of Africa’s famous wildlife, by game vehicle, boat or on foot.
On return to the lodge in the late morning, we will have some time to relax and enjoy the sumptuous facilities provided by the camps before a delicious lunch is served. After lunch, take an opportunity to explore the area from the charming town of Victoria Falls, to the magnificent Falls themselves, or simply relax and enjoy a siesta at your leisure.
The evenings offer guests an opportunity to mingle over cocktails and share their experiences of the day around a blazing fire before a scrumptious dinner is served.

Guided Tour of the Falls:
