Victoria Falls River Lodge & Island Tree House Suites


An African-chic river lodge and a private island lodge, both with a spectacular setting overlooking the mighty Zambezi River

River Lodge

The Victoria Falls River Lodge is a luxury tented lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River. A great base from which to explore the Falls, the lodge is also the perfect place to just sit back and bask in the tranquil river surroundings. Unwind with a treatment in the Toa Spa, indulge in the infinity pool or head out on a serene river cruise along the Zambezi River as the sun starts to dip towards the horizon.

After a long day in the African sun, the riverside bar is the ideal place to recharge with a tasty sundowner in front of a panoramic river setting. Once refreshed, head to the open-plan dining area, which sits just metres from the water's edge. Decorated with a charming African elegance, the restaurant is renowned for its stunning views and delicious menu of traditional Zimbabwean cuisine.

All of the tents are large and open-plan, and full of natural light. There are eight Luxury Tents and five Luxury Family Tents. Neutral tones combine with splashes of colour to create a stylishly classic, yet contemporary sanctuary. Extra-large beds and open-plan bathrooms provide comforting and luxurious conveniences, but the highlight has to be the proximity to the river, which is only a stone's throw from your private deck and plunge pool.

Island Lodge

Victoria Falls Island Lodge is a private island in the Zambezi River that's reached by boat from the mainland. It's perfect for guests looking for an ultra-exclusive experience. Six adults-only Island Treehouse Suites are perched above the river and come with a private pool and butler service, while two double-storey Starbed Treehouses also have an open-air treetop deck with a beautiful four-poster 'starbed'. The treehouses are connected to the island's private lounge, sunset bar and restaurant via wooden walkways.
