Victoria Falls River Lodge, Zimbabwe
Luxury tented camp on the banks of the Zambezi, close to the Victoria Falls
Available as part of your tailor-made holiday in Zimbabwe designed for you by our destination specialists
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 a range of safari activities and the adrenaline adventures offered around the Falls. Victoria Falls River Lodge is a private game lodge set in Zimbabwe's Zambezi National Park, just minutes from the spectacular Victoria Falls - close enough to see and hear 'the smoke that thunders' from your luxury tent's private viewing deck.
There are thirteen spacious, luxury tents, and five luxury family tents all complete with plunge pool overlooking the banks of the Zambezi River. All are air-conditioned. While each room is covered on the outside by canvas, this is the only tented aspect of them. Inside, a high A-frame thatch structure maintains a cool interior in the day and a warm and cosy atmosphere in the cooler winter nights.
Activities & Experiences
Game drives, river cruises, white water rafting and bird watching are all on offer. Fishing and walking safaris are also available.
Facilities & Services
The thatched main lodge is a large, open plan area, set back from the river, and makes an excellent location to relax with an evening drink and watch animals graze along the bank. Follow the deck out to the pontoons and you'll find a comfortable viewing platform, built above the river itself. Food is a highlight of your stay at Victoria Falls River Lodge and the menu provides a variety of locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes. For those in need of some blissful pampering, a selection of in-room massages and spa treatments are offered.
Weather & Seasons
There are two very distinct seasons here: the wet and the dry season. These are not about local rainfall, but refer to the level of the Zambezi River. From around March through to July the river volume surges as the rainfall in Angola and Zambia from months before swells the current. The nights are chilly and the days warm at this time of year, and The Victoria Falls are at their most dramatic. From around September to January the water levels drop, the Falls are more accessible and the views are clearer. It's worth noting that the rains come from late October to February and, combined with high temperatures (up to 40C), October and November can be very hot and humid. The drier months from October to February offer different activities during the lower water level season.
11 hour international flight to Johannesburg, 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.
