Waterberry Lodge

Waterberry is a lovely family owned, and run, lodge near Victoria Falls. It is perfect for those with children as there is a fantastic pool and various board games in the lounge, pretty gardens and a private villa for larger families. It is far enough away from the Falls that you don’t hear the helicopters and microlights but close enough that you don’t have to travel far for activities. With only 7 comfortable rooms and one cottage, it is a cosy and affordable option.

Why we love Waterberry Lodge!

We love the wholesomeness of the lodge, owner run special attention is paid to every client and it is extremely good value for money.

Lodge Key Features

Family friendly

Waterberry love having kids to stay, from the swing in the yard to the pool to the family
friendly rooms, crayons, board games etc. they are setup to take children. Do note there is no restriction to the river so very young ones will need to be supervised at all times.

Children of all ages are welcomed, with plenty of activities in and around Livingstone it is a great place to take the whole family. There is also a private farmhouse for those with large or multigenerational groups, which has its own private staff.

Good value and good activities

At Waterberry, two in house activities are included each day from a visit to the Victoria Falls (non guided), sunset and daytime cruises, fishing, island picnics, guided birding walks, guided village walks, and also a guided tour of the town and local markets. If there is anything else you wish to do the lodge can easily arrange this for you. It becomes extremely good value when you add in all these activities as well as meals and local drinks. It is the perfect place to relax at the Falls, taking activities at your leisure at the start or end of your trip.


Waterberry is based on the river but further upstream, although you can’t see the falls there are plenty of wildlife and the gentle meander of the river to enjoy. From birds to hippos to the ever-shy bushbuck there is plenty to see in the area. It is a very comfortable lodge with excellent service and you are made to feel right at home the moment you step through the door.

Client Reviews

  • Intimate and relaxing

    Waterberry is a beautiful, small lodge set against the stunning back drop of the Zambezi River. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food excellent. The rooms clean and tastefully designed. With a great selection of inhouse activities (such as falls walk and sunset or dawn cruises) on offer as well as external activities to suit all types of adventures this would have to be the perfect stay for enjoying the delights on offer at Livingstone.

  • Highly recommended

    Had an excellent 3 night stay here where we acclimatised before starting a safari. Very relaxing, superb location not far from the airport and on the banks of the Zambezi. Very friendly and efficient staff ; lovely accommodation overlooking the river. Good quality food and drinks. Swimming pool………and lots of wildlife on your doorstep. Interesting boat trips and wonderful work being done with the local school. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Brilliant lodge on banks of Zambezi

    Lovely situation and the most friendly and helpful of staff, particularly Kelly. Difficult to think how it could be improved. Sundowner trip along Zambezi to the banks of Zimbabwe, early morning birding walk around the grounds and day trip into Zimbabwe to see Victoria Falls all memorable
