Livingstone, Zambia

Tongabezi Lodge is a romantic hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River just upstream of Victoria Falls. We offer a selection of houses and cottages, each beautifully furnished using local materials. Guests can dine beside the river or on their private terrace. Tongabezi combines an exclusive ambience with the warmth and hospitality of the people of Zambia.

The free flow design and open front to most of the rooms is unique and very effective. Bathrooms have exclusive and spectacular views over the Zambezi and personal valets complete the attention to detail at this African dream lodge. The swimming pool feels almost as if it is almost part of the river and is set into the base of a rock cliff blending perfectly into the scenery.

Tongabezi Lodge accommodation is in open-fronted houses, or cottages. Each unit has its own valet, to take care of guests, and who also acts as a private concierge.

There are five houses; each one is unique, from the Honeymoon House, with its private balcony overlooking the River, to the Bird House with its sweeping views and open-air sunken bath. There is also the open-decked Tree House, and the Dog House, and the new Nut House, which is entirely enclosed, and boasts a private garden and infinity plunge pool.

In addition to the houses, there are five River Cottages, all of which overlook the banks of the Zambezi River. Each has a large double bed or two singles, plus a mosquito net and en suite bath and shower. You also have an indoor and outdoor area for private dining, or to be used as somewhere to relax and enjoy the view. The Cottages are enclosed, and may be more suited for those who are not as happy with being in the open-fronted Houses.

There is also the Garden Cottage, which is ideal for a family or couple seeking luxury and privacy. The house is hidden behind a private walled garden, set back from the river, thus making it the only accommodation at Tongabezi that does not have a view of the Zambezi River. The cottage boasts 2 bedrooms, a private living room, with fireplace, and open-air sunken bath.
