TAITA FALCON LODGE
Nestled above the Zambezi River, overlooking its winding waters and the dramatic cliffs of the Batoka Gorge lies Taita Falcon Lodge. This wilderness retreat is located in the heart of Zambia, downriver from the mighty Victoria Falls.
This secluded lodge has a total of 7 en-suite chalets all of which are designed and built using local materials, with stones from the gorge and reeds from the river. Each chalet is named after a bird of prey that can be seen soaring the skies. Décor is simple, yet stylish, with hints of handmade crafts and natural features, keeping in tune with its wilderness surrounds.
The lodge itself was designed to showcase the dramatic views that surround it. With its vast viewing platform, open-air bar and lounge perched over the sheer cliffs, it’s the perfect place to sit and take in Zambia’s scenic vistas. Winding stone-lined pathways lead the way through the grounds from the main lodge, bar, pool and boma area around to the secluded chalets.
There are various walks to explore the gorge and the indigenous forests, where ancient mopanis, white seringas, marulas, leadwoods and African star chestnuts dot the diverse landscape. Beyond the lodge, there are a vast array of activities to suit everyone, from thrill seekers to wildlife lovers. Experience the falls in all its wonder on foot, on the water and even from the air, there are more ways than one to discover this part of wild Zambia.
