Situated on the Zambian bank of
the Zambezi River, within the renowned Mosi-Oa-Tunya National
Park and just 15 kilometres upstream from the spectacular Victoria
Falls lies the secluded Thorntree River Lodge. The entire complex
has been constructed using natural materials with indigenous woods
and thatching providing cooling shade and the unmistakable feel
of a true safari camp. The Lodge blends naturally into the riverine
vegetation and commands superb river views from its main deck
and private verandas.

of river. Feel its peace and serenity while you enjoy a drink,
cast a line or raise your binoculars to the passing array of animals
Adventure lovers will also be able

and bungee jumping as well as sightseeing flights over the Falls
by helicopter, fixed-wing aircraft or micro light. All activities

for many other species including giraffe, sable, zebra, wildebeest,
buffalo and a wide variety of birds.
