Forget Victoria Falls themselves, the place of this lodge is surreal and absolutely breathtaking! Looking down into the deep gorge of Zambezi River from the terrace by the dining area, is the best view you could ever get. We had an amazing time at Taita Falcon Lodge and every last detail was harmonious: from the gorgeous view and delicious meals,... More

I cannot praise Taita high enough. You feel at home the moment you arrive and Annmarie, Faan and Mervis do everything they can to make your stay a true pleasure. Incredible service and the most friendly and well trained staff. I was there for three nights with a group of eight and everybody loved the place, despite the chilly nights.... More

I spent four nights at Taita resting up between work assignments. It was off season and, in addition to wonderful hospitality, I had a chance to learn the unique story behind Taita from the owner and staff. The setting is unique, the accommodation supremely comfortable, the staff in every way solicitous and helpful. It's away from the noise and bustle... More

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.
