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!!

Having been camping and rafting down the river Zambezi for the past week, it was wonderful to arrive at this beautiful lodge and be welcomed by the staff and owners, and to relax in luxury for a day with the group before people headed off for other adventures. The owners were really helpful to all the group with arranging onward... More

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

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.
