Livingstone and Victoria Falls


A luxury lodge on the banks of the Zambezi

Waterfront luxury upstream from Victoria Falls

Set on the banks of the Zambezi in a secluded spot upstream from Victoria Falls, Tongabezi delivers luxury and tranquility in equal measure.

The five cottages and seven open-fronted houses that make up the camp have bags of personality and character. Some come with private wooden decks and plunge pools overlooking the river, others open-air clawfoot tubs inviting romantic evenings under the stars. The garden house, with a protected lawn and plunge pool, provides total privacy. Attention to detail is evident in everything from the elegantly canopied beds to carefully chosen artwork.

This is one of the most romantic places to stay in the area, the atmosphere inviting and hidden spots for relaxation plentiful. The lodge makes the most of its location away from the falls, providing a welcome haven after a day marvelling at the Zambezi’s majesty. The welcome is exceptional – and the team friendly and warm.

The impact of your stay:

  • Tongabezi, a member of Green Safaris, is part of a small group dedicated to sustainable tourism in lesser-visited destinations in Zambia and Malawi. Their mission is to provide economic benefits while protecting Africa’s ecosystems, wildlife and communities. Conservation and community development are integral to their business, with each property supporting various upliftment projects addressing key social and environmental issues.
  • Tongabezi addresses Zambia’s education challenges, including a shortage of teachers and infrastructure. They fund and support the Tujatane School, providing a holistic education to rural Zambian children. The school now educates over 280 students from preschool to grade 9, sponsoring some to high school and university. Tujatane alumni include professionals like pilots, doctors, nurses, lawyers, accountants and teachers who have returned to give back.
  • Green Safaris founded the Mukuni Community Farm to counter biodiversity loss and environmental issues caused by industrial farming in Southern Africa. This organic project supplies fresh produce to local lodges and businesses while serving as a learning centre for sustainable agricultural practices. The goal is to create resilient food systems, address nutrition challenges, and contribute to a greener planet.
