Victoria Falls River Lodge
Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private game lodge to be built in the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe. Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River – the Zambezi Crescent Collection’s pioneer Lodge is so close to the Victoria Falls its legendary spray may be seen in the distance.
The Lodge offers a choice of sophisticated accommodation options comprising of 13 Luxury Tented Suites (including 5 Luxury Family Tents) and 6 Island Treehouse Suites (featuring 2 unique, double-storey Star-Bed Treehouses – complete with rooftop sitting area and the signature star-bed, with which they share a name).
With spacious interiors of between 110 and 113 square metres, the luxury river-fronted, canvas-under-thatch tents at Victoria Falls River Lodge are the perfect escape for the whole family. Situated across the way, and nestled on a private island between the waterways separating Zimbabwe and Zambia, are the exclusive Island Treehouse Suites. These are for guests preferring a more intimate accommodation experience – the ultimate in secluded luxury.
Each room type is tastefully decorated; has an extra-length, king-size bed, comfortable sitting area, en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath and shower, and a private viewing deck with plunge pool. Twin-bedded configurations are also possible.
The combination of personal service, bird and wildlife viewing, fine dining, deluxe accommodation and a significant array of recreation opportunities (both on-site and in the nearby historic town of Victoria Falls) completes an unforgettable stay.
