      Tongabezi Lodge

      A Romantic Hideaway on the Zambezi

      Livingstone, Zambia is renowned for the impressive Victoria Falls. Over one mile wide, Victoria Falls is the most expansive curtain of water in the world and drops more than 328 feet into the sheer Zambezi Gorge. Located in the southwest corner of Zambia, these falls and the Zambezi River are the central points in an area of spectacular scenic beauty. Tongabezi is a luxury lodge located on the banks of the Zambezi River, near Victoria Falls. Privately owned and operated, Tongabezi combines romance and exclusivity with warm and attentive service. The experienced staff maintains a smart, exclusive and distinctly Zambian feel throughout the lodge. Meals are first-class, served beside the river or on your private veranda. Additional common areas include a thatched riverside bar, spacious lounge area and a rock swimming pool under a tumbling waterfall. With a total of 11 en-suite guest accommodations, all travelers’ needs are met. Each house and cottage has its own valet who takes care of guests throughout their stay and act as a private concierge. Tasteful furnishings with an elegant en-suite bathroom, as well as a private veranda, complete the accommodation. There is no set pattern to days at Tongabezi. Guests can do as much or as little as they wish, with game drives, bush walks, canoeing, village visits and boating trips all included with the accommodation. Additional activities are available at a supplemental cost. Please see information regarding Victoria Falls activities at the end of your descriptive itinerary.
