tongabezi zambia private villa swimming pool


Just over nine miles upstream of thundering Victoria Falls, Tongabezi Lodge sits in a towering grove of ebonies looking out over the broad Zambezi River.

This tranquil eco-lodge is all about discovering the gorgeous wilderness that surrounds it—most simply done by cruising down the river—as well as the headliner falls just a short journey downstream.

The restaurant serves up delicious seasonal Zambian cuisine, which it’s possible to enjoy in the comfort of your own spacious private deck area (although, in this prime spot, it’s fair to say there’s no dud table).


The lodge’s variety of accommodations is impressive. Its five River Cottages and seven houses are each idiosyncratic and stylishly presented with an ‘African fusion’ aesthetic.

Romantic and secluded, they offer wonderful views of the river from the panoramic windows, free-standing tubs (also with river views), and plenty of space on the sustainable hardwood decking (nothing but river views).

For a greater sense of exclusivity, it’s possible to set up residence in the heart of the Sindabezi River. You’ll share this serene islet with four other houses, enjoying an astonishing level of tranquillity (although still benefitting from the services of the dedicated valet for each residence).
