Thorntree River Lodge
Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, Zambezi River, Zambia

Thorntree River Lodge is located inside the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia, a few kilometres upstream from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Victoria Falls. This Zambia safari lodge blends a tranquil Zambezi River setting with an eclectic mix of local African culture accented by contemporary influences.

Why We Love it and You Will Too

  • Top-notch service and quality amenities are guaranteed here. Thorntree River Lodge is incredibly well-run, with staff who are warm and engaging. It's precisely what you should expect from a Victoria Falls safari lodge of this calibre.
  • Expect personalised service of a "muleli" which translates to "the person who looks after you". This is a dedicated Thorntree team member who will look after you when you need, but without being too intrusive when it comes to your privacy.
  • Savour those iconic sunsets during late afternoon cruises along the Zambezi River, G&T in hand. You also could witness this scenery from Thorntree's sunken boma, located right on the river. 
  • With the exceptional Thorntree River Lodge as your base, revel in the sights and sounds of Zambia's Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. Pay a visit to Victoria Falls from the Zambian side, which is only 20-minutes' drive away. 
  • It's a great place to add in some relaxation time during your travels. Spend an afternoon soaking in your private plunge pool, watching out for hippos and local birds. 
     

Your Thorntree River Lodge Experience

As you first set eyes on this magnificent lodge, situated on the banks of the Zambezi, you will know you are in for a treat. You'll be welcomed with dance and a song, broad smiles and a hot towel to wipe away the dust from your journey.

Set in Zambia's Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, Thorntree River Lodge is only a short distance from the infamous Victoria Falls. This luxury, eco-friendly Zambezi River safari lodge has been completely redesigned with sustainability in mind, drawing inspiration from the local customs and culture. The exquisite use of wood, mud, grass, glass and stone all combined to create a harmonious space for you to really experience the full serenity of the river. 

Thorntree River Lodge boasts spacious, private rooms and family units, all featuring their own indoor and outdoor bathrooms, and luxurious private plunge pools. The main lodge at this Victoria Falls lodge consists of an inviting lounge with an open dining area, where that fine dining experience of African cuisine will delight your taste buds.

A gym and spa overlook the mighty Zambezi River, and there is a small library with Wi-Fi, should you need to connect. The communal deck is a popular spot to relax (set right on the lip of the river). We really love the sunken boma area where you can indulge in sundowners conveniently brought to you from the bar.

As far as activities go, take your pick from tours of the mighty Victoria Falls, to catch and release fishing, canoeing, game viewing, horseback safaris, helicopter flights and rhino tracking. We can guarantee that you'll never run out of things to do at Thorntree River Lodge.
