About Us






Tongabezi is a luxury lodge near Victoria Falls on the banks of the Zambezi River. It was founded in 1990 by Ben Parker and the late Will Ruck-Keene, pioneers of eco-tourism in Zambia.

Privately owned and run, Tongabezi combines romance and exclusivity with warm and attentive service. Each house and cottage has its own valet who takes care of guests throughout their stay and act as a private concierge.

There is no set pattern to days at Tongabezi. Guests can do as much or as little as they wish, with game drives, bush walks and boating trips all included in the price. The majestic Victoria Falls can be viewed either by boat or helicopter.

Honeymoon House
Built with the perfect view, indulgence and privacy in mind the Honeymoon House is the original blueprint for luxury Tongabezi accommodation. The private balcony overlooks the river, providing a perfect setting for a secluded candlelit dinner beneath the stars. Alternatively, you can choose to dine with our other guests on one of the river decks.

Bird House
The Bird House features an open-air sunken bath and a private terrace for dining under the stars. Guests can go canoeing on the river, join game drives, bush walks and enjoy sunset boat trips. Luxury camps such as Tongabezi provide a perfect base to explore Victoria Falls and the stunning African bush surrounding it.

Tree House
At the end of the swimming pool a hidden path winds along the cliff face to our secluded Tree House. Set against the basalt rock bed, amongst the branches of the riverine trees this house spreads out over various levels. The king size bed has a large canopied mosquitoe net and awe inspiring Zambezi views. An extended mezzanine lounging deck can also be used for private dining. The upstairs bathroom has a shower and a loo with a view. Suspended over the river the lowest deck is taken up by an extensive bathroom with a large sunken bath. All the inclusive Tongabezi activities are available ... but this house is so much part of the surroundings that you do not need to leave to experience the beauty and majesty of Zambia

Nut House
A haven from the elements, it is entirely enclosed with light streaming in through every wall. Charming glass tiles reflect the sunrise in African patterns onto the wood and stone floors. Folding doors open into the private garden and infinity plunge pool, all offering spectacular views over the Zambezi from the elevated position on the river bank

River Cottages
As well as our open-fronted houses, we have five River Cottages overlooking the banks of the Zambezi. Each has a large double bed or two singles, plus a mosquito net and ensuite bath and shower, along with indoor and outdoor areas where guests can dine under the stars or simply sit and enjoy the ever-changing river views.
Because the River Cottages are close-fronted with gauze netting in the windows, we find they are better suited to guests who feel nervous about sleeping “outdoors”, but still wish to listen to the sounds of the bush at night. A valet is assigned to each cottage at Tongabezi luxury lodge. Victoria Falls is nearby for spectacular viewing trips by boat or helicopter.

Accommodation, all meals, drinks, house wine (not premium wines, champagne, sparkling wines and
liqueurs), laundry service and levies.
