Victoria Falls River Lodge
Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

The first privately owned lodge situated in the Zambezi National Park, the Victoria Falls River Lodge offers exceptional game viewing opportunities as well as ample opportunity to visit the magnificent Victoria Falls, which is mere minutes downstream.

Eight Luxury Tents and five Family Suites are laid out along the riverbank on either side of the lodge’s breezy central dining area. These huge and contemporary styled thatched “tents” are actually solid structures covered with canvas and contain sliding glass windows, stand-alone bathtubs, outdoor showers and private decks, each with their own private pool overlooking the Zambezi. Luxury Tents sleep 2 people and the Family Suites sleep up to 5 people (2 adults and 3 children) in a King size 4-poster bed, and a bunk bed and a small single bed in an adjoining tented room. 

This is an ultra-relaxing lodge and the main communal area is perfect for sitting out on the deck to absorb the surrounding nature, or you can enjoy some private game-viewing from their secluded tree hide. Elephants and hippos wander through camp and swim in the river, while resident wart hogs act as lawn mowers. See the spray and hear the distant roar of the "smoke that thunders" from the main deck as well as from your private deck as you admire the birdlife and take in the wondrous African sunset. Whether you want to go on game drives, night drives or walking safaris, or spend your days fishing, canoeing or cruising gently along the river or upping the adrenaline with adventure sports at Victoria Falls, this is a fantastic lodge to base yourself at. To wind down, guests can treat themselves at the Toa Spa, or simply kick back at their stunning infinity pool.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
