Old Drift Lodge

Right on the banks of the Zambezi River sits the luxurious Old Drift Lodge, its beautifully constructed tents overlook the Zambezi National Park and is only 7km from the Victoria Falls. Set in wild paradise, animals roam the area frequently, so you get amazing sightings of elephant, giraffe, zebra and many more African wildlife during your stay. With incredible views over the Zambezi, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing and memorable safari and the mighty Falls.
