Dear Oom Vaan & Anne Marie We wanted to tell you and anyone reading this review how much we enjoyed staying at the Taita Falcon Lodge. After 7 days of rafting down the river we were treated to a great experience at Taita Falcon. Unique location looking down the Batoka Gorge, excellent food and great chalets give you the real...

Okay, this is the third attempt to rate and report on this lodge. The first one was not ever posted as tripadvisor felt it did not meet their guidelines. The second was actually posted and then pulled down after the owners gave a casual response and then I was informed by tripadvisor that I once again did not meet the... More

This lodge was one of our destinations on a two week adventure trip through Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff and shown around the main gathering area/bar. They have ample seating options, all of which overlook the Mighty Zambezi. After rafting the river for the past three days it was great to see... More

The owners of Taita Falcon Lodge , once again, would like to express our deep regret about the incident and promise that we are doing everything in our power that it does not happen again.We have not had a theft in 12 years and might not have been as ready as we should have been. We have appointed more security... More

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
