Tongabezi Lodge

Tongabezi Lodge is a romantic hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River just upstream of Victoria Falls. The friendly team welcomes guests to a selection of houses and cottages, each beautifully styled with furniture and artifacts from all over Africa. Guests can dine beside the river or on their private terrace. Privately owned and run, Tongabezi combines an exclusive ambience with the legendary warmth and hospitality of the people of Zambia.

Tongabezi is the ultimate destination for romance – if you have a special occasion to celebrate, the entire team will be at your service to ensure the ultimate wedding, honeymoon, or anniversary – but the real beauty of the Tongabezi experience lies in its ability to set the scene and inspire a little magical romance in everyone… no occasion necessary!             


Victoria Falls, Zambia


  • Romantic & secluded hideaway
  • Private dining
  • River-side location

Our Thoughts

Very quirky but very charming, Tongabezi is a unique property. No two rooms or houses are the same so have fun selecting a favourite when you book. Ask us to reserve you a private dinner on the dining platform which is moored in the middle of the mighty Zambezi – eating will never be as exciting again.

Tongabezi Lodge

Understated but refined with a strong sense of the exciting spirit of Africa. Architecturally unique cottages, houses and chalets are built on the banks of the Zambezi offering romantic seclusion and superb views. Furnished with king size beds and luxury bathrooms, it is a haven in which you can relax while being spoilt with sophisticated service and attention to detail.


Several private dining decks and other areas, some indoors and some outside on decks overlooking the river.  Waitered room service offered in all rooms
