Set between the Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River, the luxurious Thorntree River Lodge is set on the banks of the fast-flowing river. It’s a sought-after gem in Zambia. Large doors lead onto your private deck with their own lounge chairs and a large plunge pool. Sit back with a glass of wine and watch the river whooshing past. Zambia is pure nature and therefore pure relaxation.

About Thorntree River Lodge
On your arrival, make your way onto the large terrace at the Thorntree River Lodge and let the staff take care of your luggage. Just have a look at that breathtaking view! Here in Zambia you can unwind and enjoy gourmet meals, go on river cruises or game drives and relax in your private tented suite. Explore the nearby Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, which offers excellent game viewing and Big Five sightings as well as Zambia’s lesser-known wild animals. This modern and glamorous lodge is a romantic place and perfect for honeymooners and couples, yet it also caters for families.
Guests at Thorntree River Lodge can choose from 8 twin rooms and 2 family units. Each of the units has indoor and outdoor bathrooms and a large rectangular plunge pool with views of the Zambezi River. The main lodge has a lounge with an open dining area, a beautiful bar and a communal deck that’s set on the edge of the river. Guests can enjoy cuisine in the sunken boma at night around a fire and swim in the infinity pool during the day. What’s special about the lodge’s main space are the wooden floating decks on the water – they move with the water levels and looks and feels like a sailing boat.
