Tongabezi, Victoria Falls, Zambia

Situated literally on the river, the ultimate luxury of Tongabezi is just upstream from the world famous Victoria Falls. The romantic atmosphere that surrounds the place is evident in the attention to detail that this lodge offers.

Even if you’re not on honeymoon, or celebrating a special occasion, you cannot fail to feel the romantic ambience of Tongabezi.

This secluded setting features hidden-away houses and cottages with teak decking, tented double beds and verandas that stand on the edge of the mighty river. You can dine beneath the trees with your toes almost in the water. Or on a floating sanpan.

And you can fill your days with trips to nearby Victoria Falls, or Livingstone Island. You can even opt to stay in Tangala House or on Sindabezi – a private island with an exclusive river camp.
