A Heaven Of Serenity & Luxury

  • Type: ECO lodges
  • Setting: Safari

Perfectly positioned lodge from which to enjoy the cascading spectacle, of the Victoria Falls nearby. Among the Zambia safari lodges, Thorntree River Lodge blends a tranquil riverside setting with an eco-conscious approach. 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. Each of ten tented units situated along the edge of the mighty Zambezi River has its own luxurious private plunge pool and direct river view. After a refreshing sundowner drink while watching an exquisite African sunset, spend your evening sharing stories of your safari around the fire from within the comfort of the sunken boma before enjoying African inspired fine-dining experience. Children of all ages are most welcome and their celebrated kids’ club, the Ngwana Club will ensure hours of fun for your kids of all ages. Lodge offers daily excursions to the Zambian side (and Zimbabwean side – in the dry season) side of The Victoria Falls, private river cruises, cultural visits, fishing expeditions, canoeing, rhino tracking and game drives, all included in your stay.

Luxurious rooms - Gorgeous decor

ShuMing, Singapore - March 2020

The most luxurious of all African Bushcamp hotels by far - we stayed in the interconnecting family rooms. Amazing service - they allowed us to have all our meals in the room. Lovely to wake up to this view as pictured below with the sound of huffing hippos. Note: The only wifi is at the library hut and not available in main building or rooms.

Most luxurious hotel I have ever stayed in!

Alison W, United Kingdom - April 2020

We only spent one night here on our way back home having had to cut our holiday short because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. It was 18 hours I will never forget. The room was spectacular on the banks of the River Zambezi. The staff were extremely professional as well as being friendly and open. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed our river trip with Easy. I really hope we can go back there one day.

I stayed here for three days and had an unbelievable time! The location and views were amazing! The staff was always available to answer any question and see to any request which I had. When I asked for some apple juice they juiced apples and I had the be.st apple juice I ever had. I highly recommend it- it is worth the price
