The deck of Taita Falcon Lodge offers an incredible view of the gorge and river....it's so great that we really were ambivalent about leaving the lodge to go into Livingstone/activities. If I was to return (and I hope to) I would definitely make a point of spending at least one day doing nothing more than admiring the always-changing scenery with... More

This was not my first stay at Taita by any means. I was totally inspired by the place many years ago and this year I had the opportunity to share the place with a group of friends. As always, the standard of accommodation, food and service was first class. I cannot urge you enough to go and stay there -... More

After 4 days of white water rafting down the Zambezi River and roughing it - the Taita Falcom Lodge was an absolutely awesome experience. I loved the view of the river. The room was awesome, authentic African luxury. Loved the shower in the bathroom.

After an 11km bumpy dirt road ride, Zen gardens with contrasting coloured sand swirls into patterns that leads you to this magical bush retreat, overlooking the majestic Gorge. The view is spectacular and it takes a while to comprehend the natural beauty. It surpasses anything I’ve ever experienced and the view elevates your soul. Two Black Eagles glided before us... More

We stayed at Taita Falcon Lodge after rafting the Zambezi for 4 days…we flew in by helicopter…views are absolutely breathtaking, accommodation is a lovely African/ Zambian experience…I would describe a raw luxury…..chalets were made from bamboo…every one has a personal garden with outside shower walls can be rolled up and down, we loved it! The food was lovely all home... More

The best place to stay when you are on a kajak-trip on the sambesi (but not only then..) great place, view, staff, food, rooms,... the location ist before rapid nr.17 - good to finish a single-day-trip, (and you don't need one more transfer) I hope, the dam-project will not be realised!!
