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!
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.
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
Tongabezi consists of 5 River Cottages; 4 luxury houses (Bird House, Tree House, Honeymoon House); 1 enclosed luxury cliff-top house (Nut House), 1 double bedroom Riverside House and 1 Garden House perfect for families with two bedrooms, living room and plunge pool within its own private enclosure (without river views).
Sunrise and sunset boat trips, guided canoeing, fishing, picnic lunches on islands, visits to the Victoria Falls, game park, curio shops and museum
Children over 7 years accepted, but there are various rooms/houses you can choose from that would be suitable for the whole family - The Garden House, The Dog House and Tangala House.
