Thorntree River Lodge


Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, Zambia


Beks Ndlovu


A haven of serenity on the banks of the awe-inspiring Zambezi River near Victoria Falls.

Thorntree River Lodge is set in Zambia’s Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, just 20 minutes from the famous Victoria Falls. The lodge has drawn inspiration from local customs and cultures to create a modern and contemporary design with tented roof structures to maintain the feel of authentic Africa. There are eight luxury tented suites and two luxury family suites that are situated along the edge of the Zambezi River. Each unit has its own indoor and outdoor bathroom as well as a luxurious private plunge pool, deck, and direct river view.

The main lodge consists of a lounge with an open dining area, where the fine dining experience of African cuisine will come to life. The communal deck overlooks the stunning riverside and is home to a sunken boma area and infinity pool. From the lodge, daily excursions to the Zambian side (and Zimbabwean side – in the dry season) side of Victoria Falls are offered, and private river cruises, cultural visits, fishing expeditions, canoeing, rhino tracking, and game drives are all included in your stay.

External activities, such as guided rainforest walks, bungee jumping, and helicopter flips over ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ can also be booked on your behalf.
