Thorntree River Lodge

Modern and magnificent. That’s Thorntree River Lodge for you. With its open-fronted suites bang on the river’s edge, private plunge pools, and your very own in-room bar cart (Houston, we have a problem), it’s to die for. Sure, there are a million things to do in Livingstone – a million and one, if you count its jaw-dropping main attraction, the thundering grand dame herself. But when you’re ready to recharge your batteries between safaris (not just your camera ones), these shaded decks and lazy palms await. Collapse into a deep sleep, perchance to dream of misty rainbows, Zambezi sunsets and bottomless cookie jars. Is there honestly anything better?


Stuff we love

Shaded decks and lazy palms

  • Poring over the fascinating history of the Falls in the library before retreating to the wine cellar for a romantic dinner a deux.
  • Tracking rhino on foot in the Mosi-oa-Tunya national park, getting as close to them as you’ll ever get in this lifetime.
  • Casting a rod out into the river from the floating deck, only to have your efforts scuppered by a passing fish eagle.
