Waterberry Zambezi Lodge is a small, friendly and informal lodge, just 35 minutes from Livingstone but in the heart of the wild. The lodge is situated in a secluded position on the banks of the spectacular Zambezi River, with wonderful views across to the Zambezi National Park on the opposite bank.
It's the perfect setting for guests to enjoy total peace and quiet while still being close to the Falls and all the adventures that Livingstone has to offer. Away from the noise and bustle of the activities around town, the perfect silence is enhanced by birdsong, the sound of hyena and lion on the opposite bank and the whistle of frogs along the river’s edge.
A sunset cruise is the perfect way to start your stay here when you first arrive - relaxing on the peace and quiet of the Zambezi with a drink of your choice and snacks, watching whatever wildlife comes your way and with a virtually guaranteed perfect sunset.
After exploring the Falls, return to the lodge and relax around the pool, or join a guided birding walk through the river woodland. If you have longer to spend at the lodge, enjoy a dawn cruise as the river awakes, or go fishing for bream and tigerfish. A visit to the local village can also be arranged, where many of the Waterberry staff life. The Waterberry guide will show you daily life, housebuilding and agriculture and the Tukongote School which was built with guest donations.
Each of the 7 thatched cottages are different in size and style, and have a private terrace where guests can sit, relax and enjoy the view. The cottages are set around the beautiful lawns and gardens on the banks of the Zambezi. Named after birds found around the lodge, these are lovely cool rooms open to the high thatch.
The Woodlands are available to those wanting to be in the wild without sacrificing comfort and luxury. The three 40m2 safari tents have a lounge seating inside and out and a private veranda garden.
The River Farmhouse is a 3 bedroomed private house for exclusive use by groups or families. The large infinity pool overlooks the Zambezi and the game park beyond.
Meals are served in the dining area or al fresco on the sun terrace and deck overlooking the river. Guests may choose to have private dinners on their terraces or one of the secluded pontoons or platforms around the lodge.
