We have always loved this property, especially its quiet location well away from Victoria Falls itself. The perfect luxury hideaway.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Tongabezi Lodge is one of the most famous properties on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. Located 20 kilometres upstream from the Falls themselves, it is approximately 20 minutes’ drive from Livingstone.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The lodge is located on the north bank of the Zambezi River and is one of the best luxury lodges near Victoria Falls. More like a safari lodge than a hotel, it has just 11 rooms, a main central area, and lovely gardens.
The Houses comprise huge open-fronted suites with rooms literally open to the river views. They have massive four-poster beds and all the comforts you would expect from a lodge at this price. The Nut House even has a private pool. Tongabezi is famous for its five stunning suites, or ‘Houses’, which are upstream – Dog, Honeymoon, Tree, Bird and Nut. However, there are also five less expensive ‘River Cottages’ downstream, as well as a ‘Garden House’.
It offers the full range of activities available at Victoria Falls, while also providing a quieter stretch of river for river cruises and fishing trips, for example.
