Priced from USD 655 per person | Victoria Falls River Lodge 

The Victoria Falls River Lodge Luxury Tented Suites are nestled on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, one of the most famous rivers in the world.

Built upon raised decks, and sheltered by an extensive thatched roof, the 13 luxurious ‘tents’ are tastefully decorated in earthy hues with liberal splashes of crisp white, soothing sage and duck egg blue.

Each offers a larger than king size bed (twin bed configurations are also possible in all rooms), comfortable sitting area, indoor and outdoor showers and a private viewing deck with plunge pool whereupon guests are able to sit comfortably and watch the hippos wallowing.

These luxurious thatched tents are well spaced and air-conditioned. Constructed of canvas, glass and wood each extends out onto a private deck with its own plunge pool and boasts uninterrupted panoramas of the Zambezi River and natural bush.

  1. Right on the Zambezi

    Imagine a luxurious tent located right on the Zambezi River with hippos, elephants and hyenas nosing around at night! That’s the Victoria Falls River Lodge! The lodge is located in the national park and arrival is by boat – what a fun way to start your stay! The pampering began the moment we set food on the boat and didn’t end until we exited the boat at the end of our stay. As stated, our tent was absolutely luxurious, the lodge’s common areas were open, airy, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The food and drink were excellent as was the service. The river cruises (sunrise and/or sunset) and game drives (morning and afternoon) are a must as is the trip to, and tour of, Victoria Falls. Our boat captain (Billy) and game and falls guide (Nofias) were both knowledgeable and fun. We saw so many animals and birds, we lost count. For anyone who has the opportunity to visit Victoria Fall, this is definitely the place to stay!

  2. Amaaaaaaaazing

    Wow, if you want to stay in paradise this place is for you! I stayed here as a solo traveller at the end of my tour around Sth. Africa / Botswana and Zimbabwe for some R&R and I couldn’t have chosen a better venue. Whilst this was a little more on the premium side to what I am used to it was pure heaven having a 5 star menu for breakfast lunch and dinner with a great selection of wines. Their sunset cruises and game drives are also fabulous along with their spa services. I enjoyed every minute of my stay here and will be visiting again. Thank you to the team for making my experience such a good one 🙂

  3. Hands down, the coolest place that we have ever stayed at!

    We left the last few days of our trip open to see where the adventure was taking us and had our eye on a few spots in Zim. We liked what we saw on Trip Advisor for the River Lodge but couldn’t seem to book anything online (poor connection perhaps). So we took our chances and just showed up! The reception was welcoming and lucky for us there was availability. Our experience from the moment we stepped onto the boat to take us to the lodge was top-notch! Personalized, luxurious hospitality.

    Every meal was prepared with precision. Every excursion was exciting and personalized. We were traveling with our two young daughters and I was 6 months pregnant. The staff took special care to make our stay comfortable and accommodating.

    Sunset river cruises are a MUST!!!!! Nofias was our guide for most of our adventures. He was excellent! My kids just loved him! He felt like part of the family!

    The luxury tent was like nothing we’ve ever experienced. Our personal little pool on the deck and the seclusion of our tent made us feel like we were on our own little island. We ended up extending our stay for an additional night because we enjoyed ourselves that much. It was the perfect ending to our amazing trip to Africa. We will surely be back!
