Tongabezi is a luxury lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River, ideally located on a sweeping bend 15 km upstream from the Falls. It was founded in 1990 by Ben Parker and the late Will Ruck-Keene, pioneers of eco-tourism in Zambia. Privately owned and run, Tongabezi combines romance and exclusivity with warm and attentive service. Each house and cottage has its own valet who takes care of guests throughout their stay, and acts as a private concierge. There is no set pattern to days at Tongabezi. Guests can do as much or as little as they wish, with game drives, bush walks and boating trips all included in the price. The lodge consists of a selection of houses and cottages, each beautifully styled with furniture and embellishments from all over Africa. Guests can dine beside the river or on their private terrace. A little downstream from the main lodge, exclusive Sindabezi Island is a romantic eco hideaway with only five chalets. Depending on the fluctuating water levels, the majestic Victoria Falls can be viewed on foot in the national park, from inside the gorge, from Livingstone Island and from the air.
