Victoria Falls River Lodge

Victoria Falls River Lodge is a private game lodge set in Zimbabwe's Zambezi National Park, just minutes from the magnificent Victoria Falls. It is close enough to see and hear 'the smoke that thunders' from your private viewing deck.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls River Lodge
  • So close to the Victoria Falls that you can see the spray in the distance

  • Situated right inside the Zambezi National Park for exceptional game viewing opportunites

  • 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.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls River Lodge is located in the Zambezi National Park, right on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River and so close to the Victoria Falls that one can see the spray in the distance.

It is an 11-hour international flight to Johannesburg International Airport, followed by a 1-hour 45-minute flight to Victoria Falls. Alternatively, you can fly to Victoria Falls via Harare. Victoria Falls River Lodge is only a 20-minute drive from Victoria Falls Airport. As River Lodge is only a short trip upstream from the falls, it is possible to arrange a 5-minute boat transfer, a great way to first arrive.
