How about breakfast 230m above the Zambezi River overlooking Batoka Gorge? Taita Falcon Lodge leaves guests speechless over the jaw-dropping descent seen from the lodge’s open-plan lounge and viewing deck. Only 11km from the largest sheet of falling water in the world, Victoria Falls, the lodge is a secluded haven for avid bird watchers while simultaneously being close to neighbouring attractions.
Hosting is a way of life for staff at this eco-friendly lodge near Livingstone. The use of natural materials resourced from surrounding areas during construction along with an indigenous garden gives it an authentic Zambian atmosphere. Activities vary from helicopter and microlight flights around Victoria Falls, game drives in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, tiger fishing on the Zambezi, and adrenalin-filled swimming in Devil’s Pool.
Taita Falcon Lounge is home to only seven en-suite chalets, making it a great venue for exclusive-use or for those in search of an intimate experience. All chalets have private sun gardens and outdoor showers. Meals are served in the boma or at the breakfast bar—the best seat in the house thanks to its unobstructed views of the gorge below.
