On the banks of the Zambezi River near Victoria Falls, the Tongabezi Lodge delights guests with an eco-minded luxury experience. Privately owned and run, this lodge offers warm hospitality intertwined with the highest level of service. Each house and cottage in the complex has its own valet who is at the guest's disposal and who acts as a private concierge for the duration of stay. Independently minded guests will enjoy the lodges flexibility, travelers choose how active or relaxing to make their stay at the Tongabezi Lodge.
Tongabezi has four open-fronted thatched houses (the Nut House, the Dog House, the Tree House, and the Bird House) and five river cottages all with sweeping views over the river and a Garden Cottage set in its own private walled garden. Each en-suite villa is uniquely decorated with embellishments from all over Africa and outfitted with comfortable furniture inviting guests to feel at home. Enjoy the main house, which includes a lounge and pool area, and enjoy dinner in an open air dining room or have dinner set up under the African night sky on any of the observation decks. Tongabezi Lodge was created with exclusivity and romance in mind, and has created an award winning recipe for luxury along the Zambezi River.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
