Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first privately owned Camp to be set within the Zambezi National Park (Zimbabwean side). Nestled on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, the Lodge it is a short 20 minutes’ drive away from Victoria Falls. This luxurious and generously appointed tented safari camp combines a special safari experience with the close proximity of the Falls along with its myriad of adventure activities. The thirteen (soon to be fourteen) spacious tented suites, of which five are Family Suites and four Superior Tents (each with their own private plunge pools) are all oriented towards a magical view of the Zambezi River. This uniquely located lodge combines a true safari experience with one of the seven natural wonders of the world – The Victoria Falls. The main lodge has an open plan design and has been positioned just back from the river – in view of the elephants’ natural evening route. Sit back and sip on a cocktail, under the shade of the thatched roof, as the elephants graze along the river line. It’s a cool escape from the African sun.

The following guests had this to say following their stay at Victoria Falls River Lodge :-
Evron M from Brisbane, Australia “Experience Victoria Falls River Lodge - better than a hotel in town!” Phil from Mendham Township, New Jersey Fantastic trip to Victoria Falls River Lodge. Dave P from New JerseyGreat Lodge near Victoria Falls Town. The luxury tents are beautiful. They are partially screened so you will hear the wildlife at night and you may have a few small bugs in the room but this only adds to a truly authentic experience. Greg C from Laguna Beach, California Food is great and staff is very knowledgeable and nice. I would love to go back. It doesn't get any better than this place. Kimberly C from Mountain View, California The view of the Zambezi River from the lobby/common area is lovely. Both the lobby/common area and our room, which was very spacious, are nicely decorated.
