Waterberry Zambezi Lodge

Close to Victoria Falls but far away from everywhere. Waterberry Zambezi Lodge is a perfect hideaway for a visit to the amazing Victoria Falls. One of very few lodges actually on the Zambezi riverbank near the Falls, Waterberry is perfectly placed for guests to enjoy total peace and quiet while being close to the Falls and all the adventures that Livingstone has to offer. Away from the noise and bustle of the activities around town the perfect silence is enhanced by birdsong, the sound of hyena and lion on the opposite bank and the whistle of frogs along the river’s edge.

Each little thatched, en suite cottage has its own private terrace where guests can sit, relax and enjoy the view and maybe choose to dine in privacy. Waterberry is famous for good food and friendly, welcoming service. Nothing is too much for us as we plan how guests can get the best from their visit to this beautiful area. Obviously a visit to Victoria Falls is a must. And there are so many ways to see them. Walk around, climb all the way down to the Boiling Pot (and back up again!), fly over in a helicopter, raft the rapids, climb under the spray at low water, enjoy the view upside down from the bunji (!), swim in Devils Pool at the top of the Falls……… all things are possible! This is how to discover that it’s not for nothing that Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Back at the lodge guests can choose from relaxing round our lovely pool or guided birding in our excellent river woodland. River cruises are a feature of the lodge that every guest loves – a sunset cruise with drinks and snacks watching the spectacular light show as the sun sets; a dawn cruise as the river awakes; fishing for tiger and bream; always a chance of spotting game on the riverbank in the Victoria Falls National Park on the opposite bank. There’s no doubt about it, Waterberry is a perfect Victoria Falls getaway. But there is so much more to see in beautiful Zambia – so for guests with more time to spare Livingstone is a gateway to Zambia’s unique, remote and unspoiled safari areas.
