This is our absolute favourite safari lodge in the Vic Falls area! A recently built tented camp situated on the banks of the great Zambezi River. The rooms are magnificent with even your own plunge pool with views overlooking this great river.

The food is magnificent and as this package is on an all inclusive basis, meaning all drinks and meals, you are spoilt for choice whether it be a variety of international wines or maybe a craft gin to sip on whilst cruising down the river on one of their sundowner boats.

Activities include sundowner cruises, game drives, game walks as well as going to explore the magnificent falls. As part of this you can also opt to go have a lunch at the Look out cafe which is set right on the edge of the canyon just below the falls and offering fantastic views across in all directions.

The staff are friendly and helpful at all times and we have no doubt you will come back already wanting to book your next trip there!

Recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era as you step aboard our reconditioned wood-panelled coaches and enjoy fine cuisine in five-star luxury.

This trip just oozes luxury at its finest and nothing beats the clicker clack of the rails below you as you pass through spectacular scenery. From start to finish you are looked after like gold, eating magnificent food and pairing it with some of the best wines South Africa has to offer!

The viewing carriage is set at the back of the train and allows for an open air experience to sit, read and relax while you pass from Zimbabwe to South Africa.

The rooms are spacious, elegantly decorated with all cosmetics sponsored by Africology.
