Thorntree River Lodge
Victoria Falls (Zambia)

Set on the banks of the legendary Zambezi, the stunning Thorntree River Lodge is a unique African lodge with a stylish and sexy design, but with authenticity and an eco-friendly ethos at its heart. The lodge was completely rebuilt in 2017 using environmentally friendly construction methods and materials to include 8 twin rooms and 2 family units containing 4 beds each. Each suite has its own indoor and outdoor bathrooms, a luxurious plunge pool and wonderful views over the hippo-filled river and pristine riverbanks where elephant and other game wander freely. 

Thorntree River Lodge’s facilities include a great gym and spa looking out over the Zambezi River and a communal deck with a gorgeous sunken boma area which moves with the water level, as well as an infinity pool. The contemporary styling of the lodge comes from the clean lines, natural materials, simple furnishings and understated décor including chic sail canopies. However, it still maintains a warm African feel, accentuated by the lovely dome roofs and the sparse scattering of ethnic cushions, rugs and artworks.

Thorntree River Lodge is set within Zambia's Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, where a highlight is tracking rhino on foot. Another must-do when staying at Thorntree River Lodge is a privately guided tour of the iconic Victoria Falls, located a short distance from the lodge. Other activities include sunrise and sunset boat cruises on the lodge's fleet private river boats, canoe trips, picnic lunches on a private island in the middle of the Zambezi River, cultural village visits, and tours of Livingstone Town and museum.

Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled.

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
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
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
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
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
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
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
