Exclusive hideaway at Tongabezi Lodge

Spend quality time at the exclusive hideaway called Tongabezi Lodge, a popular and well-known safari landmark accommodation venue just up the river from Victoria Falls adventure hub, on the Zambia side of the iconic World Heritage Site. Since the 1990s when Tongabezi was first started to showcase the mighty Zambezi region, it has grown into a three lodge destination that caters for the diverse needs of global travellers. 

Tongabezi Lodge is the epitome of an African adventure base for game viewing, white water rafting, river boating cruises, canoeing safaris and much more. Romantic couples choose this Zambia destination for honeymoons and weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. The general setting, outlook and service is just right for romance of all kinds and being at Tongabezi deserves celebration, come rain or shine!

The entire setup includes the original and traditional 36-bed lodge on the Zambezi River, the eco-friendly solar powered 10-bed Sindabezi Island in the river and the smaller private Tangala House. Tongabezi management looks after Livingstone Island at the top of the Falls, a World Heritage Site, where guests can swim at the daring Devil’s Pool.

Choose Tongabezi in Zambia for its commitment to ongoing conservation of the region and ecotourism principles to give back to the communities. Have a ball trying the many thrilling activities from lunch on the island to canoeing down the river, guided bush walks, visits to Vic Falls, community village visits and fishing and game viewing. 

Let’s look at all the accommodation choices at this famous Zambian safari lodge:

  • The Bird House – sink into unique claw-footed, open-air bathtubs and a private deck for dining under the stars 
  • The Honeymoon House – soak up the perfect view, private luxury with river views from the deck  
  • The Nut House – retreat from the elements in a cosy elevated chalet with large folding doors, private garden and infinity plunge pool 
  • The Dog House – a larger refuge for families and friends who want to explore Africa in style – private butler, guide, vehicle and boat
  • The Garden House – a personal refuge from the crowds in a garden with private pool, 2 en suite bedrooms, large lounge and dining room
  • The River Cottages (5) – comfy rooms close to nature, closed to the insects and animals but open to the sounds of nature. 



Tongabezi Lodge is one of the original Victoria Falls establishments in the Livingstone area of Zambia to draw the crowds to experience the thrill of the mighty Zambezi River and all that this region involves in terms of conservation, adventure activities and relaxation in Zambia’s best tourist mecca. 

Enjoy a top notch, sought after safari experience in the wilds of Africa when you choose one of the varied accommodation types at Tongabezi. The owners are passionate about the region and sustainable tourism and guests become great friends with all the friendly Zambian staff and game rangers here. Tongabezi Lodge paved the way for the traditional style of quality safari accommodation up the river from Vic Falls and is still the premier tourist destination in the area.

We love the easy access to this lodge, from either Kasane in Botswana or Livingstone Airport, a 45 minute transfer, and when guests arrive it is just a wondrous holiday full of activity and relaxation all at the same time. 

Check out the amazing Victoria Falls first, that 1700m wide wall of water falling 100m down into the gorge below, some people aspiring to bungee jump off the Vic Falls bridge too! Locals call it the Smoke that Thunders (Mosi-oa-Tunya) and we call it that majestic World Heritage Site Vic Falls!

Tongabezi Lodge is dedicated to showing you the wildlife endemic to these conservation areas around Livingstone, the wealth of life in the Zambezi River itself and fantastic walks to find out more about the conservation, culture and history of the region. See hippos, elephants, crocs, plenty of antelope, even lions while you are here!
