VIctoria Falls River Lodge was the perfect finish to our African Journey. This trip was a gift my husband and I gave to each other in recognition of our retirement. No regrets on this decision. The staff, service, culinary delights, accomodation and sites were outstanding in every way. The perfect sunset was captured on the riverboat cruise and the hippos... More

The lodge is a wonderful experience with excellent service and staff, unexpected and delightful visits from the local animals with a passing parade that varies daily. The 'tents' are luxury accomodation wrapped in canvas. The guides were all of a high standard with excellent knowledge and very good at communicating that. The staff were all attentive and focused on your... More

Unexpected luxury in this tent camp/lodge alongside the Zambezi River. Accommodations are casually sophisticated, and incorporate the natural influence of the "bush." Staff are attentive and accommodating. Tents are private and well appointed. River cruise is particularly relaxing and a treat to end the day with a "sundowner."

Jonathon, Shannon and their staff provide outstanding service with smiles and humor. The accommodations are large and modern while keeping the "safari" look. The food was excellent and often looked too good to eat - works of art. The river cruises were fun and we saw Elephants, Crocs and Hippos and the evening cruise provided beautiful sunsets. Above all was... More

We have done a couple of safaris. This was quite different because it was on a river - a great big river. We had game to see on land based game drives, but this place also gave us river tours. We saw elephant herds coming down to the rivers edge to drink. Also saw crocodiles - big ones, and hippos.... More
