One of the first luxury lodges in the area, Tongabezi does a great job of being right by the action but hidden in peaceful seclusion. With fantastic service and food, it is the perfect place to come and relax for a few days as you check out the Falls. With lots of inclusive activities, you won’t get bored of things to do but we would highly recommend spending an afternoon relaxing at the lodge, enjoying all it has to offer.

Lodge Key Features

Location and activities

There are no shortage of activities to do at Victoria Falls but Tongabezi have a really great variety on offer included in the stay as well as a really great activities centre where you can book any of the included activities. From game drives to fall tours, sunset cruises with a special Sampan dinner to micro lighting, white-water rafting, the famous Vic Falls bungee jump and visits to the local school. The activities on offer here rival all the others. They have several initiatives and charities in the area, which you can visit where they are really benefitting the community.

Variety of rooms

At Tongabezi each of the five cottages is different as well as having six unique houses perfect for small groups or families. From those that are perfect for honeymoons to those that have baths on the deck (the bird house), the one that has several levels within a tree (The tree house) to the nut house with its own plunge pool, each one is unique and perfect for someone!

Each of the rooms is spacious and open so you have uninterrupted views. With king sized beds, fans and en-suite bathrooms, each one is beautifully furnished. Service here is excellent with great lounge areas split over different levels and areas.


At Tongabezi, Vanessa has been involved in many local projects including supporting a local school which encourages its students to ‘think green’. From a pre school of just 15 to a primary school of 240 children from the surrounding area to give them a better chance at life starting with a good education as well as supporting the teachers with their housing! They also have a very eco-friendly set up at Tongabezi using solar power, they use biodegradable products, eliminate plastic, grow their own fresh fruit and veg and reuse water with their purification system. They also have a fund for staff and their families affected by HIV. All in all Tongabezi has really set the standard for helping local communities from day 1 and is still a leader in their field.

Client Reviews

  • Heaven on earth!

    There really aren’t words to describe this place!! We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and we couldn’t have been happier. The service was unbelievable and the best we have ever experienced, our valet Matron was so wonderful and looked after us both so well. We loved all the staff there as they were so friendly and were determined to make our stay incredible. JC, Joseph, Felix, Matron, Clement and Brian were ones we particularly want to mention as they went above and beyond! Our room was just stunning, we stayed in the amazing Nuthouse which had the most breath taking view.

  • Unforgettable and memorable experience of peace, tranquility, fun experiences on the mighty Zambezi

    Nothing is impossible, all can be organized in an easy and friendly way. Your butler manages your linen, your meals and your wishes with a smile. We had the most marvelous family time.

  • Wonderful setting, service, accommodations

    From the first step of your arrival the service is courteous, warm and very helpful.
    I am always pleased with good service on a trip , but this was exceptional- every staff person I had contact with !
    And that was exceeded by my ‘butler’ for Bird House. Bird House is superb, great view of the river and wildlife. Coffee in the morning was a delight. The staff does an excellent job of helping to arrange a wide variety of activities that are available.
