Tongabezi Lodge is a unique luxury lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River. It is perfectly located whether you choose to enjoy the myriad of activities on offer at Victoria Falls or; simply relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and the spectacular views over the river.
Tongabezi has been voted as one of the top hotels in the world. It is one of the most romantic destinations; plus a fantastic family holiday lodge.
Pamper yourself and your family at this luxurious lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River (Livingstone, on the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls; one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Mosi Oy Tunya or “the smoke that thunders”).
Ideal for groups; guests at Tongabezi Lodge can combine with Sindabezi Island; its sister camp to accommodate all group sizes.
The true aesthetic of every Tongabezi space is the underlying philosophy that nothing is too much trouble. Private dining in a neverending choice of venues; from a quirky picnic on an authentic dhow to an indulgent lazy breakfast in bed; or your very own Sampan floating on the Zambezi river, illuminated by the Milky Way and paraffin lamps; with every course delivered by canoe.
Tongabezi is so closely knitted with the local community that it is impossible to visit here; without understanding the positive impact your presence has on this corner of Africa. You will be touched by the genuine joy and strength of the Zambian people; from the Tujatane children to the staff spearheading community projects.
