Waterberry Zambezi Lodge
Make yourself at home!
Upriver from the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Waterberry welcomes you to your home from home in the peaceful heart of the wild.
Whether you’ve travelled 24 hours to reach us, are making a visit to the world’s biggest waterfall, or heading back from safari in wonderful Zambia, there’s no place quite like it.
Our cottages are all different, colourful and stylish, all perfectly adapted to your needs – whether you want to sit and watch the river go by, or relax on your own veranda with a good book or a pair of binoculars. Or just sleep off your journey in our beautiful comfortable beds made by the brilliant Ngoma.
The first impression, after driving down the sandy road to reach us, is of rich green foliage, colourful flower borders and rolling lawns with thatched cottages scattered around the gardens. Then, looking through the open main lodge building with lounge, restaurant, and sun decks the Zambezi flows past with a vast wild national park on the opposite bank.
The main lodge building has a large and airy upstairs viewing lounge overlooking the river, inside and outside dining space and sociable lounging furniture on tiered decks. This is the central meeting place for guests – for briefings, for meals (although guests can choose to eat on their own verandas) and for swapping stories over drinks around the fire pit.
We’ve private areas all over the lovely grounds – you can sit on the river deck, seek shade in our upstairs lounge, watch birds from the raised platform by the dam or catch a nap on a lounger by the pool. You can be as private as you like but always within reach of your watchful team who will cater for your every need.
There’s so much to do at Waterberry, whether you want to see the amazing Victoria Falls (everyone does!), or just stay put and enjoy our inclusive activities, or plan a programme including special trips with our local activity partners.
When you arrive your host will explain what’s available, and help you plan your stay to make sure you miss nothing but also have enough downtime just to enjoy watching the river roll by.
