Victoria Falls River Lodge, Victoria Falls

Catering for the discerning traveller, Victoria Falls River Lodge and its luxury tented suites sit close enough to the awe-inspiring falls to see and hear the magnificent spray rising up in the distance.

Nestled on the banks of the Zambezi River, this exclusive tented lodge lies in a blissfully peaceful section of the Zambezi National Park. Custom made from glass, canvas and timber, the 13 river-facing tents open out onto private viewing decks and plunge pools where you can watch elephants and hippos ambling down below. Furnishing includes huge comfortable beds, freestanding bathtubs and open plan bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers. 

For something a bit more exclusive, opt for one of the treehouse suites which sit independently from the main lodge on the private Kandahar Island - elevated on timber decks and perfectly positioned for comprehensive river views. The two-storey ‘Starbed’ treehouses are particularly special with their open-air rooftop decks and starbeds suspended above the treetops. 

Guests can explore the natural surroundings on leisurely sunset and sunrise river cruises, canoe safaris, bush walks and game drives. White water rafting, bungee jumping, birdwatching and daily guided tours of the Victoria Falls are also on the menu. Fine dining, a rim-flow infinity pool and pampering treatments in the Toa Spa complete the experience.

Other itineraries in Zimbabwe

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
