Tongabezi is a luxury lodge near Victoria Falls on the banks of the Zambezi River. It was founded in 1990 by Ben Parker and the late Will Ruck-Keene, pioneers of eco-tourism in Zambia.

Privately owned and run, Tongabezi combines romance and exclusivity with warm and attentive service. Each house and cottage has its own valet who takes care of guests throughout their stay and act as a private concierge.

There is no set pattern to days at Tongabezi. Guests can do as much or as little as they wish, with game drives, bush walks and boating trips all included in the price. The majestic Victoria Falls can be viewed on foot in the national park, from inside the gorge, from Livingstone Island and from the air.

The Lookout was conceived as the ultimate chill out zone next to the existing Tonga Lounge, dining and cocktail decks.


With its feet planted firmly in the Zambezi, the Lookout offers guests the chance to feel at one with the great river and the separate levels ensure extra privacy.

Whether you need to check in with the world in our high tech ante room, celebrate life and all its glories with a meal or take a deep breath to practice the forgotten art of hibernation – the Lookout provides the space.

The Tongabezi vision is legendary.

Extravagance here is not a function of how much we can impress our guests with largesse – everything we do is carefully calibrated to provide the physical and spiritual realm for all our visitors to achieve the holy grail of travel – returning to reality with renewed verve… a clearer, more sparkly version of yourself.

Built with the perfect view, indulgence and privacy in mind the Honeymoon House is the original blueprint for luxury Tongabezi accommodation.

The private balcony overlooks the river, providing a perfect setting for a secluded candlelit dinner beneath the stars.

Alternatively, you can choose to dine with our other guests on one of the river decks.

* Fully inclusive rates for the Honeymoon House starting from $575 pppn


The Bird House features an open-air sunken bath and a private terrace for dining under the stars.



Guests can go canoeing on the river, join game drives, bush walks and enjoy sunset boat trips. Luxury camps such as Tongabezi provide a perfect base to explore Victoria Falls and the stunning African bush surrounding it.

At the end of the swimming pool a hidden path winds along the cliff face to our secluded Tree House.



Set against the basalt rock bed, amongst the branches of the riverine trees, this house spreads out over various levels.

The king size bed has a large canopied mosquitoe net and incredible views across the Zambezi.

An extended mezzanine lounging deck can also be used for private dining.

The upstairs bathroom has a shower and a loo with a view.

Suspended over the river the lowest deck is taken up by an extensive bathroom with a large sunken bath.

All the inclusive Tongabezi activities are available… but this house is so much part of the surroundings that you can experience the beauty and majesty of Zambia without setting a foot outside.
