Thorntree River Lodge – Livingstone, Zambia

Place of the elephant, protector spirit of Africa

Set inside the Mosi-Oa Tunya National Park, Zambia, 12.5km from Livingstone, a few kilometres upstream from the famous Victoria Falls, Thorntree River Lodge – known as ‘home of the elephant’ – offers a riveting bush experience with breathtaking views over the Zambezi River.

Three Cities Thorntree River Lodge River

Zambia is regarded as the continent’s greatest destination with pristine wilderness areas ranging from the mighty Victoria Falls to the popular National Parks of the Luangwa and Zambezi valleys with great adventure activities and game viewing opportunities. Thorntree River Lodge is perfectly positioned in this area with nine secluded, comfortable and spacious suites, all with private en-suite bathrooms and thatched verandas overlooking the Zambezi.

Three Cities Thorntree River Lodge Vic Falls

Meals are served al fresco African style, quietly under the stars on a private and secluded section overlooking the river, or in the main lodge where guests interact socially around the communal dining room table with flickering candles in true African tradition and spirit, sharing their day’s experiences and travel stories, reminiscing on the lives of famous explorers.
