Known as the home of the elephant, Thorntree River Lodge in Zambia’s Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, just a short distance from Livingstone and the famous Victoria Falls, is a place where African traditions run true.
Situated within this pristine wilderness, Thorntree River Lodge offers nine secluded, comfortable and spacious suites, all with private en-suite bathrooms. With thatched verandas overlooking the mighty Zambezi River, this is Africa at its best.
Meals are served al fresco African style, quietly under the stars on a secluded section overlooking the river, or in the main lodge where guests interact socially around the communal dining room table. Here, by the light of flickering candles, and in true African spirit, guests share their day’s experiences, reminiscing on the lives of famous explorers.
Thorntree River Lodge offers exciting wildlife adventures. Get up-close and personal with elephants; cruise the Zambezi aboard Lady Livingstone while viewing hippos and crocodiles; walk with lions in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park; hike through the rainforest to the lip of the falls chasm; enjoy the devastating views on a 'Flight of Angels' helicopter trip; picnic on Livingstone Island; view the abundant game; canoe; white water raft; kayak; abseil; bungee jump. Do it all or just relax on your veranda with a refreshing gin and tonic.
