About Tongabezi

Tongabezi is a luxury safari resort that sits on the scenic banks of the Zambezi River, a quick drive from the famed Victoria Falls. Located on the less-crowded Zambian side of the Falls, Tongabezi provides a personalized experience that puts a premium on guests’ privacy. It’s no wonder that this is one of Zambia’s most popular honeymoon and anniversary destinations. Because it has larger accommodation options, the resort is also a top choice for families in search of the perfect Victoria Falls experience. Tongabezi stretches along the riverfront. Much of the decor, furniture and design is inspired by local styles, while touches from all over the continent can be found in every house.

Tongabezi is a luxury safari resort that sits on the scenic banks of the Zambezi River, a quick drive from the famed Victoria Falls. Located on the less-crowded Zambian side of the Falls, Tongabezi provides a personalized experience that puts a premium on guests’ privacy. It’s no wonder that this is one of Zambia’s most popular honeymoon and anniversary destinations. Because it has larger accommodation options, the resort is also a top choice for families in search of the perfect Victoria Falls experience. Tongabezi stretches along the riverfront. Much of the decor, furniture and design is inspired by local styles, while touches from all over the continent can be found in every house. Because of this special blend of influences, the cottages and houses each provide a unique ambiance, all the accommodations at Tongabezi boast terraces that overlook the river. With features like private decks, alfresco baths and showers, sitting areas, plunge pools, valet service, and plush beds, it is impossible to define Tongabezi as anything other than a luxury holiday haven. Since all the cottages and houses are separated from the others, guests can enjoy as much privacy as they choose. Because of this dynamic, Tongabezi can provide intimate ambiance for honeymooners while at the same time also offering the perfect setting for a memorable family holiday. The secluded Honeymoon House and romantic Tree House are ideal for couples, while the Garden House and Dog House provide space and amenities that are well suited for families. The Tongabezi experience goes beyond the luxurious, personalized accommodations. Each meal is a special event here. Guests can enjoy a social dining experience at the main Lodge table, savor a quiet conversation at a private table on one of the Lodge’s terraces, or even have a delicious dinner served on a sampan in the middle of the river (each course is delivered by canoe). The Lodge’s lounges and terraces provide a relaxing place to socialize or sip a cocktail. A number of activities are included in the rate. Guests can enjoy cruises and canoe rides on the Zambezi, trips to Victoria Falls, game drives and wildlife hikes, and visits to local villages and markets. Additional activities, such as a trip to Livingstone Island, are available a la carte. What to do Take a game-viewing drive or boat ride on the Zambezi, then return to watch the sunset on the main terrace with a cocktail in your hand. Set out on a short trip 30 minute drive to view Victoria Falls. Take in the amazing panoramas of the river and surrounding bush lands from your house's private terrace.

What we love

The creative dining options. The boisterous main table is a lot of fun, while a sampan meal or dinner on the private terrace are ideal for guests seeking solitude and romance.

The different houses. Tongabezi is not ONLY a family destination or a honeymoon destination. It is both. The numerous accommodations and activity options make it possible to have a memorable holiday regardless of your reason for visiting.

The pan-African decor, which really gives each house and cottage an attractive sense of place.

What to know

Both couple and family accommodations are available at Tongabezi.

Victoria Falls is a short drive away, though Tongabezi offers other viewing options as well (including a trip to Livingtone Island, which sits right in the middle of the falls).

Tongabezi has two nearby sister properties: Sindabezi Private Island and a luxurious private residence called the Tangala House.
