Tongabezi Lodge is a romantic hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River just 20 km upstream of the magnificent Victoria Falls, and combines an exclusive ambience with the warmth and hospitality of the people of Zambia.
There is no set pattern to days at Tongabezi. Guests can do as much or as little as they wish, with game drives, bush walks and boating trips all included in the price. The majestic Victoria Falls can be viewed either by boat or private aircraft.
Lodge facilities include a dining, bar and lounge area under thatch, a swimming pool with waterfall, grass tennis courts, fishing and canoeing.
Instead of having lunch at Tongabezi Lodge you may opt for a picnic lunch on one of the nearby islands accompanied by a guide. Or, depending on the time of year, you may prefer lunch on Livingstone Island, right on the very edge of the Falls.
In the evenings, you can dine on one of the indoor or outdoor decks in the main lodge, or within the privacy of your own suite.
There is a variety of accommodation options to choose from, from River Cottages to the stunning Tongabezi Houses and the separate Tangala House.
The River Cottages have a private lounge, spacious bedrooms with mosquito net canopy. The Tongabezi Houses have unique architectural features, seating area and 4 poster double beds. Each accommodation option has its own valet who will look after you throughout your stay.
The Tangala House has 4 bedrooms and a 12m private swimming pool, and comes with a vehicle and boat, chef, waiters and private guide.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
