Located just 11km from the world-famous Victoria Falls and perched on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, 230m above the mighty Zambezi River, the exclusive Taita Falcon Lodge provides a unique location and offers a stunning bush experience, close enough to the Victoria Falls and all activities but also remote enough to experience Africa in all its glory.Owner managed, the lodge's focus is on providing personalized service to each individual client.
Undoubtedly offering Livingstone's best located accommodation, Taita Falcon Lodge is situated in a natural bush environment, affording both privacy and comfort.
The Gardens around the lodge are a colourful blend of indigenous plants with an abundance of bird-life including Verreaux (Black) Eagles, Peregrine Falcons and the lodge's namesake the rare and beautiful Taita Falcon.
A unique departure from typical hotel fare, the lodge focus is on quality and providing guests with a unique and unforgettable African experience.
Seven delightful en-suite chalets, constructed using naturally occurring materials from the surrounding area, give a taste of authenticity without compromising on comfort.
Great care and attention has gone into the chalet design and furnishings. To compliment the spacious bedroom and living area, each room has a large en-suite bathroom providing guests with all the amenities for an enjoyable stay.
The soft furnishings are carefully coordinated with furniture which is made using indigenous materials by local craftsmen.
The reed walls of the chalet are at three-quarter height but can be raised to the full height if required. There are mosquito nets on all beds and coils are used in the evenings. During the cooler months, hot water bottles are used in the beds for cosy warmth.
Each room also enjoys the benefit of a it's own secluded sun garden, complete with outdoor shower for a 'close to nature' moments.
All in all, Taita Falcon Lodge provides a perfect haven for relaxing in a luxurious, yet friendly environment.
Breathtaking; Awesome; Delightful; Wondrous......our visitors book is brimming with superlatives where our guests have tried their best to describe the stunning views down on the Zambezi River from Taita Falcon Lodge. Neither words nor pictures seem able to do it justice. You are simply going to have to experience it for yourself!
The Batoka Gorge drops some 230 metres down from the lodge. This provides the perfect viewing point down onto Rapids 16 and 17 on the river, less than 11km from Victoria Falls. This makes for a great spectator sport - watching the adventurous white water rafts and kayaks attempt to navigate their way carefully through these rapids.
From your chalet, the paths weave their way across the plateau linking them to the lodge's central living area, viewing deck, swimming pool, dining area and bar. You'll want to take your time and take in the scenery around you.
In the evenings, guests can relax with a sundowner and watch as the sun sets over the gorge, maybe enjoying the seclusion of our intimate little "nook" lounge or sharing stories around the warming campfire.
