Absolute Zambia Safaris

Tongabezi Lodge

Six private Houses and five River Cottages nestle on the banks of the Zambezi River, accommodating two to five guests each. Enjoy luxury, romance and a range of activities whilst being spoiled by a private valet.

The Experience
There is no set pattern to days at Tongabezi. Guests do as much or as little as they wish, with game drives, bush walks and boating trips all included in the price. Take a short-guided tour of the majestic Victoria Falls. You can also enjoy the Falls from inside the gorge, from Livingstone Island and from the air.
Houses & Cottages

Our five Houses and four River Cottages are individually styled and cater for two to five guests. Experience lavish romance at the Honeymoon House, wake up amongst the birds in the Tree House, or enjoy a romantic dinner overlooking the Zambezi River from the private deck of your own River Cottage.

A wide range of activities are on offer during your stay at Tongabezi. Visit Victoria Falls, enjoy an early morning Game Drive, drift down the Zambezi River on a Sunset Cruise, or book a romantic Sampan dinner floating out on the river. There are also some great activities for adrenaline junkies â white water rafting, elephant back safaris, microlight and helicopter flights, or the famous Victoria Falls bungee jump. Community minded? Do visit our Tongabezi Trust School, Tujatane. Our students are officially amongst the best performers in Zambia, regularly winning national drama, poetry, and traditional dancing competitions, and theyâd love the chance to show off their skills.

Victoria Falls
One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Mosi-oa-Tunya or âsmoke that thunders' is a short drive from Tongabezi. Our guides will take you to view the breath-taking cascades of water and walk you across Knife Edge bridge, where in high water you might be drenched in the spray. You can also visit Livingstone Island and gaze upon the Falls as David Livingstone first did: from amongst them. The daring might even choose to swim in Devilâs Pool, a natural rock pool that sits on the very edge of the abyss. For those who wish to see the view from above, our team will be happy to organise a non-inclusive microlight or helicopter flight through the gorge and over the Falls.

Sindabezi Island is a private hideaway on the Zambezi River, 15km upstream from Victoria Falls. Experience eco-conscious exclusivity at this remote luxury bush camp â the discerning travelerâs best kept secret.

Sindabezi Island is unique - the discerning travelerâs best kept secret. An idyllic, exclusive camp on our very own private isle on the Zambezi River, it is the only luxury bush camp from where Victoria Falls can comfortably be explored. Experience the large number of activities in the area during the day and return to a tranquil haven, a thousand light years away from the bustle at night. Fodorâs consider Sindabezi one of the top 10 eco lodges in Africa.

There are only five open-sided thatched Chalets on the entire island, allowing guests to soak up the sights and sounds of a pristine African bush setting. Views across the flood plains of the Zambezi and into the nearby National Park complete the experience.
