Tongabezi Safari Lodge – Livingstone, Victoria Falls, Zambia

So Close and Yet So Far

Just 10 miles or so downstream from the Tongabezi Safari Lodge are the thundering Victoria Falls; although you cannot hear their roar, you are somehow aware of their powerful presence. Yet Tongabezi itself is a place of tranquility, built along the banks of the still-gentle Zambezi so that each guest cottage and its veranda enjoys award­-winning sunsets.

The lodge is no bush camp: There’s a ten­nis court and river­side swimming pool, four-poster beds, and sunken baths (loos with views!). Tasteful natural furnishings one could describe as “high bush” decorate the Tree House, or open-air Honeymoon House, atop a cliff. This is the perfect roman­tic base for your Zambezi experience, whether for invigorating morning bush walks and bird walks, or for gentle six-hour to four-day canoe trips, overnighting on the river’s many private islands.

You can also choose to soar over the falls in the lodge’s private Cherokee plane or take a wild white-water rafting trip at their base.
