After a three week African Safari camping trip it was a joy to enjoy a couple of days of comfort and relaxation at Taita Falcon Lodge before returning home. The location is spectacular and the individual chalets are comfortable, well appointed and each one has it's own private garden area with an outdoor shower. Hosts Faan and Anmarie were welcoming...

Taita Falcon Lodge is one of the best kept secrets that Livingstone has to offer. Away from the noise and hustle and bustle of town and traffic, Taita is surrounded by the beautiful African bush and perches right on the edge of the Zambezi River gorge, offering breathtaking views of the river and rapids far below. Your hosts (and owners),... More

I really don't know where to begin. Fa'an and Annmarie, first and foremost, thank you for delivering more than accommodations, but creating an experience that brings out the best in Zambian hospitality. You make each guest feel welcome and at home. Taita Falcon is off the beaten path away from the pedestrian and cookie cutter big hotels along the Livingstone... More

The lodge is situated 11km or so outside of Livingstone, which is not so far but the roads are really bad, so it takes 30 - 40 mins to get there from town. They do their own transfers in an old hardy land cruiser, as none of the regular transfer companies will drive the roads. If you like a little... More

Thank you for your review. Just one correction - Taita Falcon Lodge is 20km from Livingstone Town and 11 km from the Victoria Falls. Unfortunately the Council road for the first 6km dirt road is not good. After trying for a few years now they at last have it out on tender for fixing this year. They are now just... More

Unfortunately I was able to spend only one night in this amazing hotel. We arrived to the hotel by the helicopter (lucky us and yes hotel has its own helipad), so I wasn’t aware how far it is from Livingstone. Only when we drove to Livingstone the next day, I realised it is rather longish drive on a dusty road.... More

We spent a wonderful weekend at Taita Falcon Lodge where the view of the Batoka Gorge is absolutely fantastic. We were welcomed by the owner, Stefaanus and the workers who always brought excellent service. The food was super and we even got coffee in bed every morning. They arranged transport for us to and from the airport, tours and even... More

We were forewarned about the road to Taita from town but seeing as we are residents and used to African road conditions, we found it to be a little rough in some places but perfectly doable and no rougher than other lodges on gravel roads. The rooms are lovely with spacious bathrooms and piping hot water. The lighting of mosquito... More

One of the most amazing and nicest places in southern africa. Nice view on the Zambzi-River, nice and naturally builded, clean rooms, top service, even a larger group of 24 persons was handled very professional. Its a good place to stay closed to Livingston.

Enjoyed one nights full board, very friendly staff. Loved the little touches like coffee in your room in the morning before breakfast, cafeterier would have capped it rather than instant. Very helpful with activities. Overall lovely relaxing experience. Food fantastic too.
