Overview

 

Welcome to Taita Falcon Lodge, a wilderness retreat situated on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, just 11km from Victoria Falls.

Surrounded by stunning views, Taita Falcon Lodge offers guests a unique bush camp experience, blending modern comforts with natural charm.  Whether guests are complete novices with a thirst for adventure or seasoned travelers in search of a unique experience, Taita Falcon Lodge is the perfect choice for your trip to Zambia.

 

Taita is located 30 min from one of the most iconic Natural Wonders of the world – Victoria Falls.

Victoria Falls is a waterfall located on the Zambezi River, on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is one of the largest waterfalls in the world and is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The local Tonga people call it “Mosi-oa-Tunya,” which means “The Smoke That Thunders.” The falls are approximately 1.7 kilometers wide and have a height of around 108 meters. The mist created by the falls can be seen from a great distance, and they are a popular tourist attraction in southern Africa.

 


 

1. The open air “bush camp” style accommodation

It’s one of the few ‘bush camp’ type accommodation experiences left around Victoria Falls with our chalets open to the breezes and birdsong.

 

2. The proximity to Victoria Falls

We are close enough to the Falls to access all the exciting activities but far enough to keep that remote and tranquil bush experience.

 

3. The breathtaking views

We can arrange all your Victoria Falls activities and our viewpoint over rapid 16 and rapid 17 means those who prefer to skip the rafting to take in the views can watch the thrills and spills in the gorge below.
