Tongabezi Lodge

Tongabezi Lodge is a romantic hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River upstream from the mighty Victoria Falls. Getting there is effortless, with a flight from Johannesburg to Livingstone.

Unique, luxurious and set among a secluded tranquil grove of African ebony trees, Tongabezi sets the scene for a romantic retreat. Their friendly team welcomes guests to a selection of six private houses and five river lodges, all beautifully decorated with African furniture and embellishments. It’s sister camp, Sindabezi Island Camp is a small and intimate camp on a private island in the middle of the Zambezi River, just a short boat ride from Tongabezi.

The main focus at Tongabezi is of course The Zambezi River and Victoria Falls, the Adventure Capital Of Africa, and one of the Wonders Of The World! Guests are shown the wonder of Zambia from the water by day and can dine beside the river on the romantic terrace at night. Activities include a trip to the falls, sunrise and sunset boat trips, guided canoeing excursions, private sundowners or lunch at a sandbar, fishing, a swim at Devil's Pool, game drives in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, mountain biking or a visit the Maramba market.

Tongabezi combines euphoric experiences with warm ambience and the famed hospitality of the Zambian people.

This is definitely one of the most romantic lodges in Africa!
