Victoria Falls, Thorntree River Lodge

Set inside the Oa Tunya National Park, Zambia, 12.5km from Livingstone and a few kilometres upstream from the famous Victoria Falls, Thorntree River Lodge – known as ‘home of the elephant’ - offers a riveting bush experience with breathtaking views over the Zambezi River.

Zambia is regarded as one of the continent's greatest destinations, with pristine wilderness areas ranging from the mighty Victoria Falls to the popular national parks of the Luangwa and Zambezi valleys with great adventure activities and game viewing opportunities. Thorntree River Lodge is perfectly positioned in this area with 9 secluded, comfortable and spacious suites, all with private en-suite bathrooms and thatched verandas overlooking the Zambezi.

Meals are served al fresco African style, quietly under the stars on a private and secluded section overlooking the river, or in the main lodge where guests interact socially around the communal dining room table with flickering candles in true African tradition and spirit, sharing their day’s experiences and travel stories, reminiscing on the lives of famous explorers.

Thorntree River Lodge offers stimulating wildlife adventures: up-close and personal encounters with elephants; cruises on the Lady Livingstone, a three-decker vessel perfect for viewing hippos and crocodiles; walks with lions in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and Masuwe Estate; hikes in the rainforest on the lip of the fall’s chasm; helicopter 'Flight of Angels' trips with fabulous vistas of the falls, river and its many islands; picnics on Livingstone Island; game drives, canoeing, white water rafting, tandem kayaking, abseiling, and bungi-jumping.
