Nestled in a beautiful spot on the banks of the Zambezi River, Tongabezi Lodge is the region’s ultimate romantic retreat.
Founded in 1990, the lodge is still owned and run by Ben Parker, one of the original founders. It’s now an award-winning property, renowned for its incredible service and luxurious features.
Catering to a range of travellers, Tongabezi has a variety of accommodation options. There are five River Cottages, and six individual ‘houses’, each with their own quirky design and decorated with stunning arts and textiles from all over Africa.
From private infinity pools and claw-footed baths, to hidden tree houses, family suites and a Honeymoon House that’s been described as ‘worth getting married for’, Tongabezi is a truly spectacular property.
Whichever room you choose, you’ll experience Tongabezi’s exceptional service. All guests are looked after by their own valet, who will organise all your activities and meals, ensuring that your stay runs smoothly.
There are a huge range of activities on offer from sunset cruises and canoe trips to nature walks, game drives and a visit to the Victoria Falls. There’s also plenty to do within the property.
Take a dip in the main swimming pool, relax on The Lookout, a large deck over the river, or even indulge in a massage from the onsite spa.
