Uninterrupted panoramic views of African sunsets
Take a cruise up the Zambezi whilst sipping a sundowner as you watch the animals come to the waters edge to drink at the end of the day
Within easy reach of Victoria Falls Town, yet hidden away inside the park, Victoria Falls River Lodge is a great base from which to explore and experience both the adrenaline fuelled adventures offered around the falls, as well as a range of safari focused activities.
The Victoria Falls River Lodge occupies a wide stretch of Zambezi riverbank, minutes upstream from the falls. This area attracts wildlife throughout the year. Herds of elephant regularly make their way past camp, headed for the river to drink and play. Pods of hippos noisily make their presence felt along the shallower pools out of the main current. The national park itself is home to a fantastic array of wildlife as the animals are drawn to the constant source of water and the lush vegetation growing alongside it. Kudu, impala, hippo, buffalo and crocodile are all commonly spotted from camp.
The food is delicious with a fresh menu that gives you variety of different dishes to choose from.
This lodge is perfect for those looking to enjoy the falls but still have a traditional safari lodge experience.
