Although we did not stay at this hotel we enjoyed a fabulous lunch on the deck overlooking the gorge. My fillet steak was the best I have had in Zambia and the Mosi's nice and cold. Best of all is the view as well as the chance to see the Taita Falcon, which is a very rare bird.

It was a relaxing moment. The enviroment made me appreciate the beautiful places we have in Zambia. For those who wants peace and tranquility try Taita lodge. You have the sound of birds and the roaring Zambezi river

Taita Falcon Lodge gives you a real African experience by staying on the Batoka Gorge of the Zambezi River. Living in a large hut made from natural materials gives you the 'real feeling'. The owners and their staff are friendly and most helpful, seeing that all your needs are met. The food is outstanding. It's a great place to rest... More

The drive to Taita Falcon is quite long but it is really worth it. The lodge has a great view of the Zambezi as it is right at the edge of Batoka Gorge. The sunsets we saw while there were very very beautiful. The food was great! I loved the fact that breakfast can be served anytime. The service was... More

My group pretty much took over the lodge. Cold, refreshing drinks were on hand when we arrived. Lodge is fairly remote and takes a bit of time to get there but it's worth the effort. The view of the Zambezi is amazing. The rooms are all separate cottages and are really large and nice and felt authentic. The owners/managers hung... More

Wonderful view of Zambezi & sunset. Flew in by helicopter - they have their own helipad. Good food, helpful staff. Chalets nicely laid out with private secluded garden in mine. Friendly South African owners.

Great Lodge with the best views in Zambia, must be 900 feet above the Zambezi River with unobstructed views of the river as it bends and over Rapid 17. The deck is perfect for sitting and letting the day pass with a few cocktails or beers. The owners and staff were great, food was excellent and varied and the cabins... More

We stayed here one night after a four day river rafting trip on the Zambezi. From landing on the helipad right at the hotel to the great view from the deck we really enjoyed our stay here. It has a very relaxed and at home feel. Private Chalets with indoor or outdoor showers and a courtyard. Rooms are open to... More

We stayed here for a night during a brief trip to the Zambezi on a rafting trip. The location was fantastic as it gave us a great view of the river and one of the rapids we'd run (Number 17, "Double Trouble") as well as a great view over the gorge itself. The owners were very friendly - both of... More
