  1. Some places are worth it - Old Drift Lodge is one of them

    Old Drift Lodge absolutely exceeded our expectations. The setting is so beautiful, so peaceful, and so full of wildlife. We will never forget waking to the sound of bellowing hippos, watching the hilarious monkeys from our deck, having lunch with the snuffling warthogs nearby, and even an elephant at the front door at dinner. The design of the rooms and the common areas is a cut above “glamping.” It was such a fun luxury to shower/bathe outdoors, on the banks of the Zambezi, and to sleep with the tent rustling overhead. The decor felt authentic and was wonderfully retro, calming and luxurious. The entire staff is outstanding, sometimes anticipating our needs before we even knew it ourselves. We always felt so welcome and pampered. The food was fantastic too!

    Also, they went above-and-beyond to make our 30th anniversary celebration special with playful and luxurious surprise treats. We could be married for another 30 years and I am quite sure we will never have a better anniversary celebration.

    For us, it was a splurge that we will never regret. Some experiences are just worth it.

  2. The best experience

    The Old Drift Lodge is an experience that must not be missed if possible. Living amongst the wildlife in accommodations that exceed all expectations. The rooms are described as “tents” but except for the canvas walls are anything but. The staff is exceptional. The guides were outstanding. An unforgettable experience.

  3. The best stay we could have asked for

    My fiancé and I stayed at Old Drift Lodge for 2 nights and at the end we both felt that 2 nights were not even enough. The lodge locates right next to Zambezi river inside the National Park, where you don’t need to go out to enjoy the safari life. Elephants and hippos could be around the lodge at any time, but in a very safe way for your stay (don’t worry).

    Every aspect of this place is totally amazing and well thought out. All the details of the decoration and the very attentive and cheerful staffs make you feel like home away from home. The booking includes almost all the activities you may desire for your stay at Victoria Falls. What else could you ask for?

    Thank you so much again to all the staffs of Old Drift Lodge. We have a really amazing and wonderful time at your place and will definitely return and recommend anyone who would like to have once-in-a-lifetime experience at Victoria Falls. You will never regret this decision.
