About Thorntree River Lodge, Victoria Falls

Thorntree River Lodge revives the feeling of a true safari camp; constructed from natural materials with spectacular views of the Zambezi River and wildlife allowed to wander freely through the camp. Sit back on your private deck to watch the famous Zambezi sunset, or perhaps, if you’re lucky, watch the regular procession of elephants following an old migration route past the front of the lodge – you are in ‘the home of the elephants’ after all! 

Thorntree River Lodge is currently being renovated with an environmentally-conscious design and will reopen in May 2017.
