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

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.

Stayed here for only one night after an epic river adventure on the zambezi. Beautiful rooms, amazing outdoor shower and the perfect way to remain close to mother nature, but sleep in an extra fluffy bed. The owners are super sweet and personal and the service is excellent!!! The view o rapid 17 from the bar is breathtaking.

Don't pas up an opportunity to stay a night at Taita Falcon Lodge. This is a spectacular, natural setting with extremely comfortable individual rooms, great food and one of the best views of the Batoka Gorge. Especially great when coupled with a river trip on the mighty Zambezi!

I have never enjoyed a morning cup of coffee than I did overlooking the gorge as I did here. The accommodations are perfect for an out of the way place. If I ever make the trip from the US I will stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Taita Falcon Lodge is only 11 km from the Victoria Falls and is stunningly perched 200m above the Zambezi on the edge of the Batoka Gorge and is a luxurious bush experience at the Victoria Falls. Owner managed, the lodge’s focus is on providing personalized service to each individual client.With only 7 chalets, the lodge offers an intimate stay or an exclusive venue to smaller groups. Each spacious chalet is en-suite with its own private garden and outdoor shower. The chalets are constructed of reed and stone with ¾ walls bringing the outside in. All creature comforts are catered for in their elegantly down to earth design. Chalets are individually prepared as double, twin, triple or family rooms.The indigenous gardens are blended with “bush zen” sand gardens at the lodge entrance and chalet exteriors, and a “green theme” around the swimming pool. There is a boma where evening winter meals are hosted around an open fire.The large viewing deck and adjacent lounge play host to meals and pre-dinner drinks in conjunction to providing expansive views downstream and miles beyond! Our meals are hearty “Afrikaans style” cooking with healthy options prepared in conjunction.We offer full board packages as well as fully inclusive tour packages incorporating visits to the Victoria Falls, cultural village tours, guided bush and bird walks, game drives and a sunset cruise. Any of the numerous activities in the region can easily be arranged by the Lodge. A paradise for birders, Taita also offers guided hiking trails in and around the Batoka Gorge.An ideal beginning or ending to your African Safari – spend a few days taking in the natural wonder of the Victoria Falls and the many adventure activities that the region has to offer!! ... more   less
