Thorntree River Lodge is set in a remarkable location. It is found in Zambia's Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, a short way away from the world-famous Victoria Falls. The lodge is set on the banks of the Zambezi River, upstream of the Falls, in the perfect position from which to enjoy a host of safari and adventure activities. Accommodation comprises 8 luxurious rooms and 2 family suites, each featuring both indoor and outdoor bathrooms, as well as private plunge pools. The main lodge area features a full range of world-class facilities, including a gym and spa overlooking the river, library with WiFi access, an open dining area, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. A communal riverside deck with a sunken boma and firepit is the perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner after an exciting day. A wide selection of activities are on offer. Visiting the Falls is of course a must-do when in this area- the mere sight of them is breathtaking. Adventurous guests can do the bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge, while those wishing for a more relaxed experience can enjoy sunset cruises on the river. Guided game drives take place in the National Park, where the wildlife includes rhino, elephant, hippo, crocodile, and giraffe, among others. Guests can also go rhino tracking on foot, a thrilling activity. Go fishing, visit the Livingstone Museum and enjoy a visit to a local village.
